Hi I'm JP

I am a tech enthusiast (and professional), I love sci-fi/comic books/fantasy/etc. I love my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father and husband. I love my family. I have a love for technology, science-fiction, comic book characters, video game, etc. I'm an all around nerd who works in software and technology support. I have a bachelors degree in Journalism with emphasis on Public Relations. I've recently moved to New Orleans to support my wife's dream of becoming a Doctor.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe it. I know it. I was born into an actively worshiping family. I've been raised in it and it has shaped me into the person I am today. I've also been exposed to different points of view and have grown into my own faith in Christ and his church. I challenge my own beliefs, making my convictions my own, not just that of my parents. The church distilled down to its most basic purpose, is to love and serve others. Truly love others despite their decisions. I try to make my decisions in my personal, social, work, and religious life based on loving decisions.

How I live my faith

I strive to live all the teachings. I have taught Sunday School for several years teaching a Marriage and Family Relations course to newly or newer married couples. I enjoy teaching and sharing great tips on how to build a successful marriage with Christ at the center of your home and relationship.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No. Missionary service is encouraged for those worthy and able to. Personally, I was unable to serve because of an debilitating illness in my youth. Missionary service is not limited to only the traditional commitment that many 19-21-year-old members serve. Within our community, we believe it important to share our religion by both example and by coming out plainly and proclaiming, "I'm a Mormon!" Show more Show less
