Hi I'm Frank.

I'm a lot like you and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of 3, an entrepreneur, and a regular guy who just tries everyday to do his best to help others.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was in college, I got to a point where the life I was living just wasn't bringing me happiness. I knew that there had to be more, but I honestly wasn't sure if there was any point to my life. I wasn't sure if I believed in God or if I mattered in the universe. I had some really good friends who had found peace in their lives through this Church. I attended other churches and tried many things to figure out what was missing in my life, and why I never felt at rest inside. Finally, I prayed. Once with a friend who was faithful in the Church and once on my own. It is not possible to describe the feelings that I felt or the things that came into my mind at that time, but I can say clearly that it started me on a journey, and that during that prayer I knew that God did exist, and that there was a plan for me.

How I live my faith

There are a couple of ways to look at this, I think. With regard to my Church life specifically, I have served in a number of capacities in our local congregation. I've been able to serve in our Young Men's youth organization leadership, with the Men's Group Leadership, and in the leadership of our congregation as a whole. Each has brought with it a unique set of opportunities to help and serve the Lord and my fellow man (and woman). In my everyday life I try to live my faith by helping others and by attempting to lead others to God and to Christ, by trying to be the best Father and Husband I can be and by serving in my community.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

Many of the things that tell me this would be evidence enough on their own, but cumulatively, it makes it a certainty to me. Being in the delivery room when my daughters were born, the perfect orchestration of the universe and all things and systems in it... The thing that tells me most clearly though is that I have received answers to prayers that I offered to God. Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Typically, a Mormon missionary or the missionary's family are personally responsible for the funding of those activities. What's cool about it to me though, is that regardless of the place to which the missionary is called he or she pays the same amount of money monthly. Some places are a lot less expensive to go and some are a lot more, but the cost is spread across all missionaries who serve. Show more Show less
