Chat With a Mormon Online
I really enjoy balancing responsibilities as a husband and father while also trying to provide for three little ones who are addicted to food.
Missionaries knocked on the door of my Nana in the 1940s near Detroit, Michigan. After being taught by parents who are Mormon I read and prayed to know if what they taught me is true. I have received answers and enjoy sharing the message of Christ.
As a graduate student I was faced with a decision of traveling to Thailand or China. I really wanted to go to China since that is becoming the center of business. However, I had this feeling that I should travel with the group going to Thailand. I've learned over the years to follow the prompting of the Holy Ghost and I followed that feeling. When I was at the airport on the way to Thailand I realized why. The student leader of the trip was also a Mormon who had planned out very exciting activities and opportunities in Bangkok. Whereas the China trip was mostly hitting the bars every night.
My greatest spiritual experiences come as I study the scriptures in the early morning hours. This helps me prepare for the day and ensure I am constantly remembering to follow the example of the Savior. I also have the opportunity to serve as the clerk of our congregation which means I handle all the finances and membership records. I consider this a great responsibility since these records represent children of our Heavenly Father and the money is sacred funds.
