Hi I'm Joel

I was born and raised in Utah. I'm married with 4 children. I work as a software engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a regular guy for my generation. I grew up as one of five children playing backyard sports with my brother and spending plenty of time playing video games. I love technology and science and work as a software developer. I have a wife that I adore and 4 children that continually amaze me.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born into a "Mormon" family in Utah it may seem simple to understand why I'm a Mormon. Fortunately, I can say that I'm not a Mormon merely because of my upbringing. I've taken the time to test the principles of the gospel and can honestly say that I am converted to the gospel and teachings of Jesus Christ. He is my King and I'm grateful for the sacrifice he willingly gave so I can have the opportunity to live with my family forever. Through my experimentation on the word I have also come to know that when I'm obedient to gospel principles I'm just plain happier.

How I live my faith

I try to keep it simple. I believe the two great commandments to love God and love my neighbor will encompass everything else. I guess the Beatle's got it right when they said, "All you need is love."
