Hi I'm Chris

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Husband and a Father. I feel extremely blessed to have such a loving and supportive family. I enjoying spending time with my spouse of over 20 years. I also enjoying spending time with our children who I feel honored to be apart of their lives. They all continue to inspire me to be a better person. I enjoy cycling, both road and mountain. When I am out on the road or the trail I often feel most grateful for a healthy body and to enjoy God's creation.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons. My parents joined the LDS church when I was three years of age. I was brought up in the church and was taught the importance of loving my God and my neighbors. There came a time however, that I had to find out for myself if all the things I had been taught were actually true. Many of the principles of the gospel I knew to be true, however, there were some that I wanted to know for myself to be true. When I say I know for myself, I mean to receive a spiritual confirmation of the truth. When I say a spiritual confirmation, I mean feeling of peace and joy (fruits of the spirit) which is God's way of letting us know when we encounter truth and for Him to show his love towards his children. This I have felt time and time again, for which I am most grateful. This does not mean my life is blissful, it is far from that; however, I am able to enjoy some peace, comfort and gratitude often when the storms of life present themselves.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do what I know to be true: loving my God and my neighbors. I am far from perfect, thus I get to seek forgiveness and try to improve my life on a consistent basis. What I do know is the God loves me unconditionally and He does not compare me to anyone else. This is the very concept I want to emulate to others. I would rather be a source of love than judgement or criticism. I know when others have showed me love, particularly at times when I did not perhaps deserve it, it did not go unnoticed.
