Hi I'm Chris

I was born in Mexico. I love to sing and learning the piano. I'm a husband and father. And I'm a very happy Mormon.

About Me

I love to sing in church choir. I have been writing my journal on a private blog but recently decided to start sharing some of my posts. I'm a husband and father. I work full time in the financial industry. My wife works part-time as a server. We have a boy and a girl, and we own a Shi Tzu dog.

Why I am a Mormon

The most direct and simplest answer to this question has always been - because I read The Book of Mormon. I read it as a teenager, wanting to know if everything my parents and teachers taught me was true. I believed it already but I wanted to gain that witness on my own. I read it over a summer and I have read it many times since then. Like the Bible, I hope to continue to read it many times over my life time. The scriptures are much like food. If we don't have it daily we will starve and eventually die spiritually. But if we feast daily, we will be filled with love, strength, and the capacity to help others and to live our own lives to the fullest. Perhaps at one point in the future, we will all realize just how tangible the nourishment is that we receive from studying the scriptures and praying daily. We may not see it with the eye, but the impact is as real as the substance we put into our bodies.

How I live my faith

I first and foremost love to read the scriptures in the morning on my own. Currently I am reading the New Testament and the Book of Mormon, alternating days. That coupled with writing my spiritual impressions and experiences has helped me grow spiritually so much. I believe that if we all spent personal time with our Father in Heaven like this, everything else in our life would steadily come into place, mainly because we would slowly start to be better. Transformation does not take place quickly and it cannot be forced. You must be diligent and consistent in following the Lord in all things, and the Lord will in His own time, and as we allow Him in our hearts and in our thoughts, change our hearts and desires. He will change our being and our countenance.
