Hi I'm Gideon

I grew up in Northern California, I love the outdoors, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

During college in Utah, my wife and I had two children--both boys. Since they love being outside, we spend a lot of time at parks, zoos, and searching for somewhere for them to get dirty.

Why I am a Mormon

At a young age, I sat and listened to the world leaders of our church. I had been thinking, for the previous few months, that I had not felt any distinct impression or feeling from God that what I believed was true. As I sat and listened to men and women speak about why they believed, I felt strongly that I was not mistaken in my belief. Over the following few days, the feeling continued, and I knew that God had answered my question and prayers about my beliefs. He had told me that the doctrine I believed was and is true.

How I live my faith

My wife and I often help with babysitting the young children during sunday school. I also help to organize service for those in the church who need help. Every few weeks, I take my young son to visit certain members of our church, to see their needs are met.
