Hi I'm Seth

I'm adopted and Mormon

About Me

I work in Technology and have a family. I work on my own cars whenever possible and am very frugal, as is necessary raising a large family. I enjoy jogging/running and have an interest in physics, astronomy and learning more about Gospel principles and teachings. I have a lot to learn as I am passing through 22 years of teenage children at home. They bring me challenges and joy. My wife is my best friend.

Why I am a Mormon

My conversion was based on fun! I was baptized at age 14. I played basketball with other Mormons and enjoyed having a team I could be a part of. I also stayed close to the church reading the Book of Mormon everyday and sharing my joy I felt in being a member of the church. At age 20 I was speaking to others in a class speaking about the Book of Mormon and said "I know the Book of Mormon contains the Word of God". No sooner did the words come out of my mouth then I was filled with the power of the Holy Ghost burning in my heart and then through my body. I knew then that I had to serve God and left for a Mission to Costa Rica and served there and in Panama preaching and teaching the Gospel.

How I live my faith

The voluntary service I give includes serving as an assistant financial clerk and a home teacher. I work with other volunteers in safeguarding donations our church receives from faithful Mormons. It brings great joy to see such generosity that helps the needy who temporarily cannot provide for their basic needs. As a home teacher I'm privileged to visit and share gospel principles in the homes of widows and family's. I try to assist in spiritual and temporal needs and to report back to church leaders if other assistance is needed which I am unable to provide.
