Hi I'm Ross

I'm an Engineer at NASA - Johnson Space Center, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mechanical engineer at NASA, a husband, and a father of four very energetic young kids. I love to invent and build things and think of new ways to solve problems. I also enjoy taekwondo and staying physically active.

Why I am a Mormon

I am very much an engineer and scientist, and believe in the scientific method: observe, hypothesis, test, etc. These principals of the scientific method also happen to be the fundament tenants of the gospel of Jesus Christ. First, I observed (read) more about the Savior and His teachings, including the promise that if we ask God in faith, He will tell us if it is true (see The Book of Mormon, Moroni 10:3-5). Next, I reasoned that if there is a God and if the gospel is true, He should answer me if He wants me to trust in Him. So, I put my hypothesis to the test and asked in prayer. From that experience I know that the complete gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth and can be found in the Mormon church. There is a God and He loves us... all of us. He wants nothing more than to help us return to Him by following the example of His son Jesus Christ. Learn of Him; put His promise to the test; follow Him; and find lasting happiness.

How I live my faith

I try to help those around me by following Jesus' example of serving others. I serve as an assistant scout master in the Boy Scouts and teach sunday school to a great class of 8-9 year-olds. I also volunteer teach an engineering class at our local elementary school, and have taught 11 year-olds how to make everything from hovercrafts to catapults.
