Hi I'm Ted

I'm a normal average everyday joe. My family has been Mormon forever, I'm one too.

About Me

My greatest joys in life are my Kiddos. I have 2 darling little girls who I love to play with daily. My wife is also amazing and I have NO idea what I'd do without her. She's the glue that keeps us all together. I have throughout my life to be good and do things that I know I should do. I attended college and eventually graduated without knowing what I wanted to do. Really, what do you do with a bachelor's degree in liberal studies? Anyway, one day a few years back, I felt God was telling me I needed to go back to school and become a nurse. So, now I'm a nurse and I love what I do. In my spare time, I like to be outside. I love hiking in the mountains, riding bikes and sliding down the slides at parks with my kids. Another thing I like to do is build furniture out of wood, though I've never made anything fancy. I want to improve my woodworking skills.

Why I am a Mormon

Like I said before, my family has been Mormon forever and I'm one too. I love being Mormon. Am I a mormon just because this is my family's heritage? Partly. I'm not going to lie to you. I do love hearing and reading about my ancestors' trials as they journeyed to Salt Lake and beyond. I'm a mormon because I believe God loves me and my family enough that He wants us to have all His blessings offered on this earth. The priesthood of God is absolutely the number one reason why I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. God lives! Jesus is the Christ! His suffering is for you and me so we can return to live with Him and God one day. Oh, I do love them and I know they love me. They love you too.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my very best to be good. I don't cuss. I read the scriptures everyday. I teach my kids about Jesus. My family and I pray over every meal. I lead my family in gospel centered discussions. I take care of myself. I try to eat right and exercise. I go to church every sunday I can make it, I sometimes have to work. I don't do anything amazing or spectacular, like I said before I'm just an average ordinary everyday kind of fellow.
