Hi I'm John

I am a family man, an educator, and a health nut. I love to ride bikes, golf, garden, and read. I am a mormon.

About Me

I am a convert to the church, I was baptized when I was 12 years old. My mother was raised in Salt Lake City Utah, by a Jewish father and an LDS mother. I have relatives who are Jewish, Muslim, and Scientologist, and I love them all. I am passionate about life and love all aspects of it. I love my family and love spending time with them especially my grandchildren. I love to bike year round in the summer on road and trails, and in the winter in the mountain snow on my fat bike. I love to golf and watch movies with a good message. I am an educator by profession, and I love to teach. I teach spin class and help people get healthy.

Why I am a Mormon

I remember as a young teenager thinking about when I died how life would be over. It was a dark and depressing thought. One day after searching prayer I came to know there is a God, I could talk to Him and He would hear me. My conversion to the gospel of Jesus Christ started with a kind and concerned LDS man who loved and mentored me. Now as a father and Grandfather, the church provides the foundation and structure for our family. The church gives me opportunity to work on repaying my debt as I am able to offer my help to others who are finding their way in the gospel. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior and He provides me and my family an opportunity to be happy in this life and in the life to come. His is a gospel of love.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being the best person I can each day. I pray to God daily to have love in my heart, patience and humility. The Gospel teaches me to strive to be honest and treat others with kindness and respect. I believe God wants me to be happy and help others to be happy too. I enjoy going to church each week because it gives me a chance to renew my commitment to God to be a good person and to live a good life.
