Hi I'm Geert

I’m a software/web developer, happy father and husband. And guess what … I’m a Mormon and loving it.

About Me

I am the oldest of five children and grew up in Aalst and Brussels Belgium. As a kid I loved to listen to music. The Beach Boys, Bee Gees and Vangelis are my favorite. I also wanted to become a famous Chef. But along the years my dreams changed. I worked as a Chef, waiter, receptionist, front office manager in a hotel and in the sales. Now I’m a software developer and taking classes in web design. I served a mission in The Netherlands. I am a father of 3 children, a daughter from my first marriage and a daughter and a son with my current wife. I’m married for the second time since April 2008 and love my wife and kids very much. I love to spend time with them and see them grow. One of my hobbies is space travel and astronomy.

Why I am a Mormon

It’s wonderful to be a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Gospel teaches me to become a better person every day. You don’t have to be perfect to be a member of the Church. Through the scriptures and the teachings I feel my savior’s love for me and his encouragement to do everything in my power to become more like Him step by step and day by day. Being one of the few Mormons in my country is not easy, but it’s worth it. And helping my wife on her journey in the Gospel and raising my children in the Church gives me great satisfaction. I’m proud to be a Mormon!

How I live my faith

Through the years I've been a member of the Church I learned that service and charity are an important part of my faith. Helping others on a regular basis helps me to become more like my Savior Jesus Christ and to feel good inside. On the other hand being a good example to everyone around me is a way to help them to find out how the Lord wants us to conduct our life. And… smiling and being positive is also part of living my faith.
