Chat With a Mormon Online
I'm married with three children. Like most families we have our ups and downs but I know we have a strong family. I've worked as an internet developer since the late 90's and now have my own online store. In my free time I enjoy cycling and skiing, and volunteer as a Ski Patroller at a small area in southeastern Michigan.
I was born and raised in the church. As I grew up in Michigan I was exposed to many different kinds of lifestyles. I soon began to see the benefits of being a Mormon. I still needed to know if it was the true gospel, so I prayed asking If the church was true and I received an answer I could not deny.
When things in life aren't going the way I expect, whether in business, or at home that can cause me to have a lot of self doubt. Going to church is a real blessing to my life, I first feel the warmth in fellowship, and then as I listen to the people who are speaking and teaching I can feel the spirit and I am reminded I am a son of god, and he loves me. Although I my have struggles there is no reason for self doubt. Having faith Christ renews faith and confidence in myself.
The Holy Ghost will give me promptings to things I should and should not. Heavenly Father doesn't expect us to live our lives indecisively and have him to make all of our decisions for us like a spiritual dictator, but when I have had major decisions in my life like marriage, I prayed and say this is what I want to do is it a good decision? I have felt the promptings of the holy ghost help me feel comfortable about my decisions.
I attend church on Sunday with my family, and keep the commandments. Our family has family prayer every day. I try to live my life so my actions reflect the teachings of my savior.
