Hi I'm John

I was born and raised in the United States. I have five daughters that keep me busy! We enjoy chocolate. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I enjoy the outdoors. I go running for fitness but much prefer playing raquetball, canoeing, paintball or snorkeling. My wife and I have five daughters who are loads of fun! I work in the financial services industry but I secretly enjoy reading about current events in space exploration as well as military history. I also enjoy playing the guitar and would like to make more time for that.

Why I am a Mormon

At a certain point in my life, I really wanted to know from God whether being a Mormon was indeed following his plan for me. After great reflection and prayer, I got my answer. I felt then and continue to feel a great peace about believing in God, Jesus Christ, modern-day prophets, scriptures (including the Book of Mormon) and in the reality of receiving answers to prayers. I find that the restored gospel (Mormon doctrine) gives me a greater understanding about God and His plan and how we all fit into it, and how we can all participate. It is a great blessing in my life and the lives of my family members.

How I live my faith

My family and I attend Church services on Sundays and activities that happen during the week. I think it helps us maintain and grow our faith and strengthens our commitments to live by it. We read scriptures and pray together as a family every evening and I feel that this helps us spiritually as well as building family bonds. Sometime it is serious business, but other times we find great humor in the scriptures and we have a good time laughing together.
