Hi I'm Chris

I live in northeastern Ohio near Kirtland. I love to see church and historical sites wherever I go. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy hot cars. riding motorcycle and being on or around the water. I like to read and discuss literature. I love to observe nature and take photos of God's creations. Relax around a nice bonfire with good friends and family.

Why I am a Mormon

I love learning about Jesus Christ and living as closely to His example as I can. The peace of mind and serenity that I have received from following the gospel carry me through the tough patches that life brings. I know that God lives, that Jesus Christ is my savior and I depend on His grace each day that I live. I believe that we continue to receive revelation from God that gives us direction in the rocky world that we live in. I believe that we are led by a modern prophet, Thomas S Monson who leads us today as did so many prophets in ancient times. The people of the world needed prophets then, we really need one now! I know that Christ atoned for the sins of the world, mine included and that through belief and acceptance of his gift to us, we can be resurrected and live again with our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I am blessed to teach the youth of our church each Sunday. These kids are amazing! I meet with a group of singles each week to share the gospel teachings and to enjoy each others' company. I lead music in our ladies' auxilliary~I love the hymns we sing, praises to our Savior and King.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

We believe that the purpose of life has multiple reasons. We need to receive a physical body that will be perfected in the resurrection of all. We also have the chance to choose between good and evil by our own agency. We form family relationships that have the possibility to become eternal. And we are here to learn and gain experience from our life's choices that will help us be more like our Father in Heaven. Through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and by following His example you can return to live with Him and our Heavenly Father and also with your loved ones. There is great peace to be had in this life through knowledge of our Heavenly Father's plan and eternal joy in the life hereafter by our obedience to that plan. Show more Show less
