Hi I'm Chris Workman

I'm a military brat. I am a video editor, an wanna-be musician, a college student, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in many different places throughout the United States following my Dad's orders from the military. We had the blessing and pleasure of living in Okinawa, Japan for 7 years. That tour with the military ended up shaping my life. I came to love the island and the people, but not nearly as much as I would come to love them when I got called to serve a mission for the Church in the same place. I experienced the culture, met friends that would last forever, and saw the gospel of Jesus Christ in action during those two years. I'm currently an art student at BYU-Hawaii and have big plans for becoming a movie director. I figure, if there is any place that can share my values and beliefs to the masses it's Hollywood! So many bad influences come through today's media, and I decided I can help fight back and add some of those good influences.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and have enjoyed the blessings it brings to my family and to all those we serve. I feel the most powerful part of this church is service. Following the savior's example and helping our fellowmen in any way that we can is so vital to the message of Christ's gospel. That's what drives this volunteer church, or lay clergy, and that's what drove me to serve a full-time mission in Japan for two years. I love the idea of selfless service.

How I live my faith

I am a teacher in the sunday school class. Each month I ponder over an assigned portion of the scriptures and prepare a lesson that will invite the other class members to feel the Spirit and learn new incites from the words of our prophets.

What is being a Mormon like?

Chris Workman
It's like a big family. We all look out for each other, serve one another, and support each other when tough times come. It's a life focused on others, and that is where true happiness is found. The less we think of ourselves and the more we focus on God and His children, the more we will find joy in this life and the life to come. Show more Show less
