Hi I'm Christopher

I'm a future physician and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a senior majoring in Neuroscience at my university where I work hard to get good grades. As I prepare for medical school, I am involved in many activities like Stroke Research and volunteering as an Emergency Medical Technician. Recently married, my wife and I enjoy camping, watching movies, reading the news, and playing racquetball.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that my Heavenly Father loves me, and that this is His restored Church here on the Earth. I feel that love as I ponder the sacrifice made by His Son, Jesus Christ. I know that through Heavenly Father's plan, I can be with my beloved wife and our future children for time and all eternity. My studies, which are science-heavy, have served to strengthen my faith as I learn more and more about God's wonderful creations. I want to be a doctor so that I can use this knowledge to serve all of God's children. As I continue to do the small things, such as daily prayer and scripture study, my faith increases and my resolve to become more like the Savior increases. I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has the Restored Gospel in its entirety. I am a member of this church because it is the only church lead by a prophet of God, and the only one that has the authority to administer essential ordinances like baptism.

How I live my faith

My wife and I support each other in all things, which includes strengthening one another's faith. My wife encourages me in righteous actions as I encourage her to do the same. Together we are striving to live the Gospel and follow the example of our Savior. We serve together in a congregation mainly composed of single students near our university. It is wonderful to see the moral strength that these individuals have as they move their way through life's challenges.
