Chat With a Mormon Online
Husband of a wonderful wife. Father of two energetic boys. I work at the Library of Congress. I love cycling and photography!
I'm a Mormon because I believe the principles that are taught in the church are true and right. I believe in Jesus Christ and I believe that the Mormon Church is His Church on the Earth today.
I attend church services every week. The most important service I attend is called Sacrament Meeting. This is the meeting where we partake of bread and water in remembrance of Jesus Christ and we renew sacred promises we have made with God. There are also various speakers that share messages about gospel topics. Sacrament meeting gives me the opportunity to reflect on the things that are really important to me such as my relationship with God and my role as a Father and Husband. I feel like my spiritual batteries are recharged after attending. I often feel the Holy Spirit during Sacrament Meeting. Sometimes, while I partake of the sacrament, thoughts come to my mind that I feel are directly from God about things I should do in my life.
I try to live my faith by being kind, generous, and by serving others. I try to set an example of clean living and high moral standards. Sometimes I fall short in these areas but I always keep trying. Being a good husband and father to my wife and children is most important to me. I believe that the most important work I could ever do is within the walls of my own home. I hope I can instill the kind of character in my boys that my parents instilled in me. My faith is the anchor to all the aspects of my life. I often wonder where my life would be if I didn't have my faith in God and his plan for us.
