Hi I'm Peter

I grew up in Oregon, worked as an engineer, and am now back in MBA school. I love hanging out with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an engineer now back in school pursuing an MBA degree. I like to learn new languages and interact with people from all over the world. I enjoy playing just about any sport, and I love swimming with the family. I also love watching sports, especially football and basketball. I'm a husband and dad and am so grateful for my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon for so many reasons, but mostly because my church gives me direction and meaning in life. I'm grateful to know that I have a Father in Heaven and a Savior in Jesus Christ. I'm so thankful for Christ's Atonement on my behalf, which gives me the chance to repent when I do wrong and to get back on track in life. I'm also grateful to have so many friends locally and worldwide that abide by the same standards as me.

How I live my faith

I'm definitely not perfect in following Christ, but I do my best. Christ has given an example of friendship, service, and love to our neighbors, and these are things I try to apply to myself. I know it's important to obey the laws of the land and be actively involved in community activities, especially when they're uplifting and faith-promoting events.

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Peter
The best way to find someone to talk to is to click on the 'Visit Us' link at the top of this page to find an LDS church building, and then attend a worship service on Sunday where you live. Feel free to talk to anyone there -- they won't bite.   Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Peter
No, but serving a mission was one of the best things I ever chose to do in life. It allowed me to experience a new culture and languages, to make many new lifelong friends, and to understand how the gospel of Christ blesses my life each day. Those are two years of service I wouldn't trade for anything. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about family?

Peter
Families are the core structure of our society today, and we can live together as families not only in this life, but forever. What a fantastic blessing. Show more Show less
