Hi I'm Zak

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a recent college graduate in Information Technology working my first real job. I've got the most adorable daughter in the world, and the most amazing wife. I'd say I'm pretty lucky. I really enjoy fixing and building things, lately it's been home repairs that have kept me busy and entertained. I'm a former runner, trying to get back into the sport without too much pain.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon since I was 8 years old, but it took real desire and effort on my part to know that it's the right church for me. I have had a confirmation from God in a quiet and deeply personal way that I am following the right path. I've seen and experienced the tremendous good that comes from really living the Mormon faith, with an honest and sincere heart, and I haven't found anything else that compares.

How I live my faith

I spend a lot of time with the youth of my faith. I'm responsible for teaching the young boys in our congregation responsibility, respect, honor, faith, duty, etc. We plan and do all kinds of fun activities each week with the purpose of building the boys up. I try to teach my boys how to become good and noble men of faith and character. We participate in the Boy Scouts of America, and I just recently saw one of my boys earn his Eagle award, that is awesome!

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

I believe that the more a person truly seeks to understand this Church and what it represents, the more they are drawn to it. We have problems just like any church, but that is part of being a church with real people as members. What is different, and what draws people in, is the truth that is taught and the authority that resides in the church. When you are truly seeking for truth, and you finally come upon it, you recognize it right away. I believe that's why the church has grown so much, we teach simple and powerful truth!
