Hi I'm John

I live in Arizona and work in computer security. My treasures include a wonderful wife and five beautiful kids.

About Me

I love snowboarding, rock climbing, moutain biking, rollerblading, racquetball and most sports. Before getting married, my life was pretty fullfilling as a computer security consultant in San Francisco. I still play racquetball, but have traded most of these hobbies in for the unequalled joy of spending time with my wife and children. I can't believe how much these little ones teach me as I try to teach them.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised in the church, I didn't know until I was a teenager if what I was being taught was true or not. I had some wonderful experiences while reading the Book of Mormon and praying about it as a teenager and countless times since that have allowed me to know for myself how real our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are and that the church is indeed led directly by Christ.

How I live my faith

I love working with the youth of our Church and try to be the best husband and father I can.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

Our family reads from the scriptures each morning. I believe it is the most important thing I do each day. A perspective that extends beyond our short life is essential to understanding the purpose of our existence. This perspective allows me to see meaning in what would otherwise seem paradoxical and pointless. I don't know how I could get by without the perspective that daily scripture study provides.
