Hi I'm Myron

I'm a husband and a father. I love to snow ski. I'm a runner. I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm an earnest husband and father of four. I work hard to provide a good life for my family and hope for their happiness. It's tough to juggle the demands of life...to know when to push and when to pull. But I do my best and look forward to those pay-days when everything comes together. One of the ways I fill the in-betweens is running. Running feels like that hard thing you know you should do, but don't really want to do. The feeling you get after a run is so rewarding. The endorphins give you a natural high and your body feels cleansed from a good sweat. You feel stronger menatlly, confident and powerful, knowing you can do hard things. So I set goals to help me keep track and remind me that I'm doing what I should do. Running has taught me that I am capable of more than I believed. Skiing on the other hand feels like one of those things you know you shouldn't do, but feels so good you can't resist. I started skiing when I was 11 years old and loved it from the start. I skimped and saved, and did everything I could think of to get on the snow. In high school I worked at the local sporting goods store in the ski department because I knew the store had ski passes for the staff. Skiing only gets better with time. Snow conditions matter less because every condition is just another challenge. I can relax and enjoy every ski day knowing there's another one around the corner. And seeing your kids find joy doing something you love is the ultimate pay-day.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that rearing a righteous family is the highest and best work. I belive that it is God's work and doing that work helps us live like Him. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints teaches how families fit in God's plan of happiness. That we are all part of his family - His sons and daughters. His gospel outlines His purpose (...to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man) and how we can move His purposes forward. It teaches the eternal nature of the family and prepares a way for us to be together (with our family) after this life.

How I live my faith

I love serving the youth in our community. I teach and coordinate activities for the 16-18 year old young men in our ward. It is a fulfilling challenge to help these young men see themselves as God sees them. To help them understand that they have unique talents and are capable of so much good. To inspire confidence that they can rise to the challenges life will bring. To realize that God has a specific plan for them, and following that plan will bring great joy. I believe that God has blessed each one of us with unique talents that He expects us to develop and grow. That those talents are intended to be used to help others in some way. Understanding what our unique talents are and sharing them with others will be the source of much happiness. Ancient prophets taught that God's purpose is..."to bring to pass the immortality and eternal life of man." The best use of our talents is achieved when we align our talents with God's purposes. I hope to help the young men I teach understand that the highest and most fulfilling use of their talents is to couple them with a wife in rearing a righteous family.
