Hi I'm Alan

I'm an engineer. I married my high school sweetheart. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in New Mexico. That's where both sides of my family have lived for generations. I think it's cool that I can say I grew up in a town that my great grandfather helped found. Work has taken me to Indiana. I'm an engineer working for a major diesel manufacturer. I love my job. I work with prototype engines that weigh more than most cars. The highlight of my life is my family. I married my highschool sweetheart Melissa after I spent two years as a missionary in Russia. We've been married almost six years now. We have two children, a girl that's 4 and a boy that's 2. I love them more than anything. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, working on cars and mountain biking.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I asked God. I asked him if Jesus Christ is my savior and if Joseph Smith was a prophet of God. I asked him if the Book of Mormon was written my inspired prophets, just like the Bible. I asked him, and he told me it was all true. I can't deny my convictions any more than I can deny that the sun rises in the sky every day.

How I live my faith

I live my faith every day. I try to be a good example for my coworkers. I do my best to be a good father and husband. I try to pray and read from the scriptures every day. I have a responsibility at church. I am the financial clerk for my congregation. I'm not perfect, and I work to improve myself.
