Father of a beautiful girl, husband of the most incredible woman in the world, and holder of the Melchizedek Priesthood.

About Me

A father to a beautiful little girl born in May 2017, and husband to a woman well above my own reaches, I consider myself an incredibly blessed man. I have a condition called Fibromyalgia that causes me great pain throughout my body, however the lord has blessed me to be able to deal with it so that I can raise and provide for my family. I am currently an employee of a large financial isntituation as a hedge fund credit risk analyst, with a background of Economics from the University of Liverpool.

Why I am a Mormon

A Question that I often get asked is; “Why do you believe that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the true church?” For me to answer this question I needed to know for myself, so I went and asked it. I asked my father in heaven if he was there, if I was his child, and if he loves me. I asked whether Jesus Christ was the savior of mankind, whether he atoned for our sins and died for all of us. I asked, what my purpose in life is, why am I here, and whether the plan of salvation was true. I asked if this life was it, do we end existence when we die. I asked whether Joseph Smith was a prophet of god who restored the true gospel on the earth in these the latter days. It is not important how I received the answers to the questions I had, but I did receive my answers, and I know with all of my heart that this is the true church. There is nothing In my life that brings me more joy and happiness than this gospel. I know why I am here, I know what my purpose is, I know that I will see my family again. I know that Jesus Christ atoned for my sins, and I will never fully be able to repay the sacrifice he made for me. This sacrifice is too great, but because of this I will strive every day of my life to live it in a way that he would be pleased with me and to share this gospel so that others will come to know of the truthfulness of it, and receive salvation. I am a Mormon because true and everlasting happiness comes no other way.

How I live my faith

I am a Holder of the Melchezidik and Aaronic Priesthoods. These are sacred powers and authorities given to man to act in God’s name. As a result i have strived all of my life to live in a way that i feel the lord would be pleased of me, and in a way to be worthy of the sacred power that i hold. I am heavily involved in the YSA (Young Single Adult) program of the church, which helps young people from the age of 18-30, to develop strong bonds with others in the church, and encourages wholesome and enriching activities for this age range to participate in. I am grateful for this program which has helped me allot in my life. Previously i have also Organized many youth activities for people aged 12-18. Whenever i can, i go out and teach with the missionaries and share the gospel, because it is the duty of all members to do so. The reason i do it is because the gospel brings me so much happiness and joy, that i feel it is only right for me to share such a gift.
