Hi I'm Cliff

I grew up in California, moved to Utah where i became a member, and now i live in Russia

About Me

I've moved around the United States, and done a lot of things, but nothing as fun as starting my own English school! My school website is www.theenglishexpress.ru It's written in Russian, but it's also written in English. Being a teacher is great! It helps me relate to people, and when questions about my faith come up, it makes it that much easier to share!

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in Sacramento going to a protestant church. I really enjoyed the services and the message! I will always have a special place in my heart for the mainstream christian faith, as it is there that I found Christ and invited him into my life. In fact, I believe that if it weren't for that background, I likely never would have joined the Mormon church. But what I learned in my old church prepared me for the next steps in understanding the fullness of the gospel.

How I live my faith

Here in Russia it is really difficult to go to meetings, because I really don't know Russian well enough to participate or understand what the talks are about. Not to mention Russia doesn't have a very large LDS population. So, I tend to read, listen, and watch a lot of the talks given by the general authorities, and as many other talks as I can! I may not be as active in the Russian LDS community, but there's no way I could live without the Gospel in my life!
