Hi I'm George

I am a first generation Mexican American. I have 13 siblings. I am a lawyer. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have three great kids, two of whom are in college. I am an attorney in the legal department of a Fortune 5 company. I grew up the 11th of 14 children of Mexican immigrants. For a work assignment, our family was able to live in Europe for three years. I also learned to speak German while serving a mission in Switzerland and Germany. My wife and I have always liked to travel and experience other cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

I am grateful that I have mostly had the courage to do what my conscience tells me is the right thing. Although my family joined the Church when I was eight years old, still I had to find my own conviction that his was what the Lord wanted me to do. I gained that conviction as a young child, but the depth and richness of that resolve has strengthened over the years. The teachings of the LDS Church answer all my philosophical questions, but more importantly, the spirit of the gospel touches my soul and stirs my conscience constantly.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed my teaching assignments at church the most. They help keep me focused on what is important and remind me that I have to be able to be an example of what I am trying to teach others. More importantly, I enjoy what I learn from listening to the perspective of others. Given my demanding work schedule, most of my charitable endeavors tend to involve fund raising or donating money to different causes. I have recently become involved in the genealogical activities of the church. My own father conducted a great deal of research in his later years and I have been able to organize much of the information and save it in the computer. I hope to be able to fill out some of the lines he did not finish and to go further back than he was able to.
