Hi I'm Wayne

I'm pretty cool, I guess.

About Me

Gosh, there's so much to tell. I'll start with the most interesting thing first: I study accounting . . . Don't be disappointed. I beg you. My life is a wreck of disappointments, and accounting is at the top. Just kidding. That's a lie. My life is good. And, accounting (in it's own sick way) is enjoyable. I view accounting as the key to understanding a complex business world in a capitalist country. The more I understand, the more the world will bend to my will. Anyway, now that you know I plan to rule the world one day, I'll tell you the next most interesting thing about me, which is actually, probably, the most interesting thing about me. I was married young, like, super young. Like, I was still a baby. Like, 22 years old, young. And, believe it or not, I'm happy. I didn't know you could do that—get married young and be happy. Well, I'm proof. I've appeared on zero morning shows to tell my success story. Next, and on a more personal note, my wife and I are expecting a baby any day . . . any second . . . This just got tense and slightly uncomfortable. Next time you see me, our baby will be born. It's a girl. Girls are the best. I am going to spoil her so rotten. She'll just be absolutely rotten. I can't wait. So that's a little about me. Reach out to me. I'd love to know who you are—the person reading this right now. Friend, stranger, I don't care, I just want to talk on this digital platform called the Interwebnet.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a mormon? What a question. According to the interwebnet some estimate that there are 33,000 different christian denominations, and I chose Mormronism. This is when some people might slap me upside the head and say "What were you thinking?" Then they might slap me upside one more time, just for effect. Well what can I say. I believe in God the Father. I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe in the book that testifies of Jesus Christ and his ministry in the Americas after he was resurrected (AKA the Book of Mormon). I believe in the book that testifies of Jesus Christ and his ministry in Jerusalem (AKA the Bible). I believe that if Christ had a church today he would have prophets and apostles with current revelation for our times. That is why I am Mormon. I believe it. Christ lives, and it is still possible to have a conversation with God the father through prayer. If you listen with your heart, as dirty or as hard as your heart may be, you will come to know that your prayers are heard and answered, and that you are loved beyond measure. You are loved beyond measure. That is true.

How I live my faith

I eat cereal in the morning. Pretty normal. I prefer lucky charms. Did you know they have four new diamond—shaped marshmallows? I live my faith in a pretty normal day-to-day manner. But then again, . . . maybe it's not always so normal. I participate in church activities. Currently, I am in a leadership committee organizing a group of 150 volunteers to provide a 2 hour service project later in the year. Last Sunday I was at church meetings for six and a half hours. That's a long time. Let me tell you, I am not naturally that awesome. In fact, I was born lazy. I didn't wake up from my first nap till I was four years old. But, I feel like part of living my faith is getting involved in . . . things. I am involved at school, church, and the community blah blah blah. Those are all nice things. However, what my faith gives back in return is much more than I could ever give, try as I might. My faith has given me the best relationships. Seriously. I'm being serious. It doesn't matter if you're not of my faith or whatever you are. My faith has given me relationships worth having with a number of different, odd people, and that means a lot to me. It makes my faith worth living.
