About Me

I am a father of five we had three last year but then this year we had twins. It has been a lot of work but the rewards are great. I work in the gas field helping with prodution water, I get to work with a lot of really good people through my work. I like to fish and hunt and would like to restore an old car some day. I am in two fanticy football leages it is fun to keep up with some football. I wrestled in high school which I really liked.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, my ansesters were part of the church at the starting years. I grew up being taught that Jesus is the Christ, and he has prophets that he speaks to. I never douted the truth I was taught but like all people I came to a point in which I had to find out for my self if this was Christ church. I was sixteen years old at the time and I begane reading the Book of Mormon for myself. As I read the pages seemed to come to life. I felt joy each day as I studied. I finnished the book in about three months time when I did I knelt in pray and ask God if the book was has words, I felt in my heart the answer you have had peace each day you read you know it is. I then prepaired to serve a mission for the church. I studied the life of Christ from the New Testiment. I came to know Him better. As I served my mission and taught his gospell everyt time I taught of the prophet Joesph Smith the spirit would bring peace to my heart I know that Joesph Smith was called of God to restore Christ Church to the earth. After severing a mission. I meet my wife and I moved for work to Colorado, I have been able to serve the the Lord's Church in several ways, each has strenghtened my knowleage the Jesus is the Christ. He loves me profoundly. While I can't say a know all there is about the Atonement of Christ. I know that he did suffer for my sins, I know that through his atonement the spirit is brought in to my life. I know this His church has all the keys required to unlock the gifts the atonement offer to each of us. Christ lives this is his church He has chosen to oversee His Church through prophets which he has called to help up know of Him. I know all of this to be true.

How I live my faith

I have worked with the Young Men of our church in our congrigation. I have been able to teach them each Sunday and have a night each week that we work in scouts and other actives. Right now I serve as a mission leader in my congrigation. We want all to know that Christ has restored the church in these last days. We want only to invite all to come unto Christ, we have no desire to push someone only share the peace we have found. I love to be able to do this I have seen lives change with great amounts of love.
