Chat With a Mormon Online
I am married to a wonderful, dynamic woman and we have three vibrant boys. My greatest joys are watching my sons learn truth and grow. I love to spend time with my wife and family, whether it consists of taking a hike, working on the house or yard, or getting on the floor and wrestling. We love to do things for others, especially in the neighborhood.
I was lucky enough to have been born to a Mormon family. I have been taught the principles of the Gospel since my youth. However, and this is the important part I find it interesting that despite my upbringing, I had to go through the conversion process like anyone else. I had to learn and study and pray to know the truth of what had been taught me. I've seen many with similar backgrounds that have not gone through this rigor and consequently have lost the faith their parents tried to give them. Through difficult experiences, I've learned to rely on the Lord and trust in his plan for me.
I love to look at the stars. From an early age, I have stared into the night sky in wonder. Somehow it makes me feel closer to my Father in Heaven. When I think of the incredible creations He has prepared for us to enjoy, it reminds me that he loves us and wants us to be happy here and in the life to come. To think he has gone to all this work just for us. Why would he do that? Because we are his children. He is a perfect Father and loves us perfectly. He wants so much for us to do what is right so we can return to live with him and become like him.
I try my best to teach my children the truth I have been given. It is interesting to me how vital the principles of the gospel are, not only in raising children, but in raising the parents as well! My wife and I continually find ourselves returning the to principles of the gospel to guide us in our parenting We try to encourage our children to make service a central part of their lives. We ask them each night at dinner what they have done to help others. We also strive to show good examples by serving each other as well as family and friends.
