Hi I'm Pete

I am a new dad and am glad that I can be with my wife and son for all eternity through Heavenly Father's plan.

About Me

My name is Pete and I am many things. I am a husband, a father, a brother, a son, an uncle, a friend, a film maker, an advertiser, a musician, a snowboarder, a soccer player, a goof off, a student, and a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was about 17 I was in invited by a dear friend to pray and ask God for myself if the Book of Mormon was a true book and if the prophet Joseph Smith was indeed a true prophet of God. I had always been taught that they were but I had not taken the inactive to find out for myself rather than believe what I was told. I accepted the invitation and decided to read the Book of Mormon and to pray to God to ask if it was a true Book. I knew the Lord would answer my prayer and that he did. As I knelt down to pray in a very secluded place in the mountains where I had hiked to, a very powerful feeling penetrated my heart and confirmed that the Book of Mormon is a true book and that the prophet Joseph Smith was in fact called of God. I knew that feeling was the Holy Ghost manifesting to me that what I had been taught all my life was right and true. From that experience I gained a personal testimony and is something that I can't forget, nor deny. I know that because the Book of Mormon is a true book that Joseph Smith was real prophet of God and because I know that is true, I know that the church that Christ restored to the earth through Joseph Smith is the true and living church. Since the day that the Lord answered my prayer, I have strived to live the gospel of Jesus Christ. Doing so has brought me such great joy and countless blessings. Thanks to the Savior, I know I can one day live with my family for eternity and return God's presence once again. I invite anyone and everyone to do as I did and to read the Book of Mormon with an open mind and to ask God if it is a true book. I then invite you to follow your heart on what you think should come next.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing my best to live as Christ did. I work hard to follow his teachings and love others as he does. It is difficult at times to love everyone but I am trying my best to do just that.
