Hi I'm Chris Bowler

I'm a soccer fanatic. I compose and play the trumpet. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a student of Music at Utah State University in Logan, Utah. I love playing jazz in the jazz band and in a jazz combo. I married my best friend Christina in July, 2013. We are expecting our first child this June. I love being married! My main hobby is sports. I love all sports, but my favorite is Soccer. My teams are Real Salt Lake and Manchester United. I love being in the outdoors, going to movies and going on road trips!

Why I am a Mormon

Every day of my life I gain strength from the principles I learned through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Just knowing where I am going after this life brings me peace. Knowing why I am here on Earth, knowing for what purpose I was created gives me direction in all of my choices. Knowing that I have a Father in Heaven who loves me and wants the best for me brings me such joy!! I have never been happier in my life than in the times when I have drawn closer to my Savior Jesus Christ and to my Heavenly Father. The key to knowing that this Church was true came to me through praying about the Book of Mormon. I had read it and understood the principles in it, but didn't know if it was true. Finally, I decided to pray sincerely about it. I made sure that I was in a quiet place, a place where I had no distractions. I prayed and asked God if it was a true book. I received my answer! I felt a calming sensation flow through my body, it literally felt warm. I felt happy inside, and in my mind everything made sense. I knew that the Book of Mormon was true, and that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was God's Church on the Earth today.

How I live my faith

My Wife and I teach a gospel doctrine class as a part of our ward's Sunday school program. Currently we are studying the Old Testament. we love reading and teaching about the stories found in the scriptures. Men like Abraham, Moses, Isaiah and Joseph of Egypt were true prophets and we can learn much from their examples.
