Hi I'm Chuck

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a family man with a super wife and three awesome and unique children. I earn a living as a registered nurse. In my free time, I enjoy playing a competitive round of golf.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. When I was eight years old, I was baptized and confirmed a member. While I don't remember my parents ever being forceful about my attendance at church, they were careful to ensure I was involved and exposed to the great opportunities of the Church. While a student in high school, I attended seminary. Great teachers there challenged me to not only read the scriptures, but to truly find out for myself that they are true. I remember vividly the feelings of confidence, love and peace I felt when I seriously accepted and pursued their challenges. As a missionary in Argentina, those feelings only grew stronger as I was able to teach and challenge others to know too. As a family man now, I am learning that come what may, what is most important to me is my wife and children. Knowing that God has a plan for me and my family makes sense. Truly learning to understand that plan has brought a real sense of purpose to my life. At the center of that purpose and understanding is the promise I have received that I can be together with my family forever as I make and keep sacred promises. I know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, has made it possible for all of that promises to be realized.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by remaining active in the Church. For me, this means doing my best to live the teachings at home with my family. We attend our meetings weekly and my wife and I visit temples as often as we can. We are grateful for the opportunity to serve too. I am currently serving in a leadership position that allows me to meet with many people. My favorite meetings are one on one with other leaders. I am supposed to be the teacher in these settings, but I always feel like I learn more by just listening and hearing how others are serving. My favorite activities are when I am with the youth. This includes my three teenage children and others their age. When they have fun, I have fun. When they gain real understanding, I feel satisfaction.
