Hi I'm Simon Rushworth

I am a happy married Mormon grandad who enjoys traction kiting : )

About Me

I am 53 and married 28 years ( as of 2013) with 4 children, 3 of which are married and I am blessed with 3 grandchildren , soon to be 4. I am an apprentice trained carpenter/joiner and have been since I left school in 1976 . I reeeealy enjoy power/traction kiting and try to get out as often as possible, when the wind is up and when I am not doing family stuff. Power kiting is like an extreme sport , but maybe not so extreme. I get pulled up to speeds of 40mph in a 3 wheeled buggy or mountain board by a power kite. I haven't bothered kite surfing as it would take more of my time , and besides that I cant be bothered drying off and have all the wet stuff n wetsuits all over the house ( that wouldn't go down well at home) That's it for my hobby. As for my life, I love and enjoy being with my family and doing stuff with them like playing lego, star wars, or marvel action heroes with my grandsons . Taking our dogs for walks, going on holiday together or just enjoy eating Sunday lunch with them.

Why I am a Mormon

It makes sense and feels right in this world we live in. It teaches principles that by living bring a happy life along with a knowledge of the whole plan of earth life and gives an assurance of where we fit into the eternal scheme of things. We are here for a reason and so was Jesus Christ and knowing that helps me every day in being a good husband, father and grandfather.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being as kind and helpful as possible to others I meet daily so as to leave them with a happy day. At church I help teach the young men in organised program's of the church to live the principles commandments and ordinances of the gospel. I also have a special opportunity to help my 18 year old autistic son in understanding the plan of life, in where we come from before this earth life, why are we here on earth and where are we going after this life is over, and how he fits into it all and the roll of Jesus Christ in his life.
