Hi I'm Russell

I'm from Perry UT. I'm the oldest of 5. I went to Bucharest Romania to serve a mission. Currently I am studying Engineering.

About Me

I grew up fly fishing and working a lot with my dad. Once a summer our family would go up to Montana and fish the Madison River. I still love to fishing when I get the chance. I am studying to be a mechanical Engineer. I got married in August of 2011, and my wife is the love of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a follower of Jesus Christ is because I find peace in living the commandments of God daily. When I was little my dad told me his experiences of when he served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He told me of experiences of teaching people about the restored gospel of Christ and the peace that he saw come into the lives of others when they lived the teachings. I wanted since I was little to see the same things. I have seen for myself that that is true; peoples lives change for the good when they live the commandments. That peace and love found in choosing to live the gospel is why I am a member of the Lord's Church.

How I live my faith

Everyday my wife and I wake up at 6:00 am and say our morning prayers and read from the Book of Mormon and sing a hymn. Then we go about our day striving to do what ever we can to do build the Lord's Kingdom.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

How did you get to know anyone personally in your life? You talk to them. Just as your best friend is someone who cares for you, by listening and encourages you to do good. Heavenly Father is a God who you can talk to through prayer. Praying to Heavenly Father it is like talking to him just like talking to your closes friends and relatives. However his relationship with you is longer than you remember. If you start to get to know Him and His Son, Jesus Christ, you will find out that they have more to offer you than anyone else can on this earth. Show more Show less
