Chat With a Mormon Online
I have an awesome wife and two amazing children. I study animation with hopes of one day earning a living doing what I love. I'm a huge basketball fan, and watch more than I play due to my type-1 osteogenesis imperfecta, aka the brittle bone disease.
I was born a Mormon, but my family was less-active until I was about 8, when my mom was in a serious car accident which she barely survived. It was then that she decided she wanted her family to return to the peace the Savior brings, so we started going back to Church. I will never forget how her testimony caught fire as she came back to activity-- she read and studied as much as she could in the scriptures and other books to learn about the Savior and what His Atonement meant to her personally. Likewise I will never forget her teaching me about Heavenly Father's love for His children, and how that love can be a powerful guide in my decision-making. The Gospel is the most important thing in the world to me. Everything that is good in my life--my family, my friends, my career, my peace-- I owe to my Savior. Without Jesus Christ, I wouldn't have anything to hope for. I'm so grateful, for instance, that my wife and I get to be together and make each other smile for eternity! It thrills me to know that our children will be with us forever, that we can be a happy and loving family for time and all eternity. We still go through hard stuff like anybody else, but it's amazing how powerful the hope that the Savior offers us can be.
The Book of Mormon is such an amazing book. It teaches the Gospel of Christ in such simplicity. Through it we learn of Jesus Christ and why He came to earth, and how we can be made clean through His Atonement through faith on His name. The Book of Mormon has changed my life again and again by pointing me to Christ.
I teach Sunday School to our local group of married students. I also enjoy getting to know my ancestors through family history.
