Hi I'm Chris Frossard

I grew up in Colorado, Michigan, Florida, and Virginia. I am a high school math teacher. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have taught high school for 27 years. I am a husband, father of four children, and grandfather of two granddaughters. I enjoy sports, people, math, history, reading the scriptures, family history (genealogy) work and mostly being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was 18, a friend of mine in high school gave me a Book of Mormon. He had been a good friend to me and been a good example too. I was a Christian. I believed in God. I knew Jesus Christ was my Savior. I knew they lived. I was baptized a Presbyterian and went to church some with my family and then to other churches. My father wanted to expose us to many faiths so we could decide for ourselves. I think he thought religion was a very personal matter. I attended Lutheran, Baptist, Methodist, Catholic services while a teenager a few times. When I was about 13 or 14 we stopped going to regular church services--only an occasional visit on Christmas Eve or Easter. However, I always knew in my heart that I would go to church when I was older. So at age 18 I was looking for myself. I eventually took the lessons from the missionaries and began reading the Book of Mormon. They told me that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was the restored and true Church of Jesus Christ upon the earth and that I could pray to God and "know for myself" if these things were true or not. I thought a bit and figured that I could actually try to know for myself. I thought that if I could know for myself, then this Church was truly Jesus Christ's true church; however, if I didn't learn that it was, then my life would be no different then it was. I left for college and continued attending church and meeting with the missionaries. I prayed, read the Bible and the Book of Mormon and prayed some more. I went through 8 missionaries during the Fall of 1980. I really believed what I was hearing and reading, but I had no revelation from God, so I thought. In actuality, I was feeling the sweet, peaceful feelings and thoughts that come from the Holy Ghost telling me these things were good, true and of importance for me to know. Through fasting and prayer my revelation did come and I knew that the Church was true. It has blessed me ever since that day. God lives!

How I live my faith

Currently, I am a bishop in my church. I work with over 400 adults and young people. I look after these people much like a shepherd would look after his flock. I have many other church members who act as leaders and help me to do this. We serve people in our church and also do service to those outside our church. We have taken our youth to visit the elderly in rehabilitation centers, we have made lunches and hygiene kits for the needy both locally and in other parts of the world. We try to visit the sick, the afflicted, the downtrodden, the widow and the orphan and help where we can. I teach young children, teenagers, and adults at different times throughout the year. I work with my church members and people in the community to help with the needs of members of my church and nonmembers as well. Today, we are collecting food for the needy in the community for the local Kiwanis food drive. This food will be distributed to the needy prior to Christmas time. It is a joy to serve others. It is a joy to serve as our Lord and Master, Jesus Christ has served. He taught us the correct way to live our lives.
