Hi I'm Chad

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm happily married with four children and living in Utah. I currently work in project management for a website company. In previous jobs I've worked in advertising, marketing, and product management in Utah and California. I grew up in Southern California, though I've lived in Utah for several years and now consider it my home. I love the outdoors, hiking, biking, running, and just spending time with my wife and kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS Church as a child, but at a very young age I gained my own personal conviction of the truthfulness of the principles taught to me by my mother and other church leaders. It was through many personal witnesses of the Holy Ghost that fortified my faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ and the LDS Church. I am so grateful to have a knowledge of why I'm here on this earth and of my future destination. There is nothing in this world that can compensate or compare to the happiness and joy that comes from living the gospeh and following the Savior. No matter what challenges I face in my life, I know the source of strength and happiness and I have no desire to ever divert from that path.

How I live my faith

My religion and my relationship with Jesus Christ is the central focus of my life. We all have to work to provide for our families, but deep-rooted under everything I do is the gospel of Jesus Christ. It's comforting to know that my life is part of a great master plan that Heavenly Father has for me and all of his children. That gives perspective to my daily life and influences the decisions I make every day. Prayer and studying the scriptures are an important part of my life. We have family prayer with our children every day. On Sundays we attend three hours of worship at our local chapel. In my local congregation ("ward") on Sundays, I often teach and leading discussions with other men my age, and sometimes with teenagers.
