Hi I'm Murray

I grew up on the California coast. I'm a civil engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy doing things with my family and following sports. I like humor and I especially like puns. I live on the California coast and work as a civil engineer. My wife and I have six children including five boys and one girl. Each boy has played high school football and through their involvement, I became the stadium announcer for their games.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 15 years old, I met a young Latter Day Saint (LDS) that talked to me about her faith and invited me to read the Book of Mormon. I also became acquainted with her LDS friends and began to attend Sunday meetings and weekday activities with them. I enjoyed their friendship and was impressed with their commitment to their faith. Reading the Book of Mormon made me feel good. In time, I wanted to follow their examples and join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It was one of the best decisions that I have made.

How I live my faith

Each day I try to follow the example of Jesus by praying, studying his teachings and helping other people.
