Hi I'm Sean

I was born in Sitka, Alaska. I'm a decathlete turned Dad and loving it. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Me and my wife have three daughters and two sons ranging from fourteen to three years old. We like to get out as a family and enjoy all that Alaska has to offer as well as laugh together while watching a movie. For me, my family means the world to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that on the subject of salvation, our Heavenly Father wouldn't have his children guessing and wondering how they may return to live with Him. It says in the scriptures that by the power of the Holy Ghost, we can know the truth of all things. I know that to be the case because I, like many others, have asked God, through prayer if this church is true and I received an undeniable answer that it is. I also know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, not by reason alone, but through a divine answer. I also know that we have a prophet on the earth today. Heavenly Father didn't answer my prayers immediately. Actually, it took quite a while. But when my heart was truly humble and He knew I was ready for His answer, He fulfilled His promise that if we ask, we shall receive. How grateful I am to Him for this precious knowledge.

How I live my faith

I have been given the opportunity to work with the young men of the church. They are a great group of boys. They may think that I am serving them, but they are really blessing me. I have been so touched by their acts of kindness towards others. In many ways, they are an example to me, even though it should be the other way around.
