Hi I'm Chris

I'm a full time single father. I work two full time jobs, I am a Finance major in college, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a constant mover. I am a single father of a gorgeous 4 year old little girl. I work two jobs and go to school full time. I'm sure there is something I won't try, but I haven't found it yet. I fish, wakeboard, play volleyball, am on a softball team, skydive, and enjoy Dora La Exploradora. In theory, I love to relax and take a load off, but it has been so long, I'm not really sure anymore.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the Mormon church. However, when I graduated high school and moved on my own, new found freedom brought new found habits and interests. I spent the next 18 years forgetting the church's existence. Moving from place to place, job to job, relationship to relationship. Yet, something wasn't right. No matter what I obtained, or digested, or sought, or found, I was never really whole. And I was never truly happy. When I finally hit my limit and laid on the floor depressed and completely without hope, came a defining moment in my life. I humbled myself to my knees and begged the Lord to show me the way. In an almost inaudible whisper came a still small voice, "go back to church." So, almost 20 years after I had last walked out I reentered the doors leading to the sanctuary of my youth. I needed only be there a few minutes to know the Lord had brought me home. My life to day is as blessed as any one who lives. I live a prosperous life with a sense of joy and peace I not thought possible. I bare witness that the Lord God reigns over this Earth. That the atonement of Jesus Christ is real. That there is a better way to live, through him, with him, for him. That you need only to humble yourself and ask and he will deliver you.

How I live my faith

I am extremely active in both my family church and the single organization. I am an admin of a group of about 400 Mid Single Adults and we have constant activities. This past summer we had a day at the lake, went canoeing on the river, and spent a day skydiving. We have social and spiritual functions weekly and conferences all year long. Between that, community projects, and work we do with and for the ward, my church activities are a very pertinent and rewarding aspect of my life.
