No matter where we are in the world, every Sunday we take a break from our usual activities and go to church. We go because it renews us, it reminds us of what life is all about, and it fills us up ready to face a new week with joy and optimism. We spend the rest of the day together as a family. We try and make the entire day a special day - a holy day even - and it has become a gift to our family.
We follow the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and seek His grace every day of our lives. Our relationship with Him is our greatest gift. He has been there for us on our happiest and hardest days alike. He leads us along and shows us the way to be happy. We strive to be like Him - to act as His disciples. To us that means being kind, finding the good in others, being there for each other, working to make the world a happier place, and living a life full of integrity and purity.
Right now our oldest son Elijah is serving as a missionary for our church. He will gone for 2 years and is serving in Japan. It is not a requirement to serve as a missionary but Elijah, like several of his siblings, has had the desire for a long time. We are super happy for him and grateful for our weekly video chats!
Watch Elijah get his unexpected call to Japan as well as hear more about what it means to be a missionary for our church!
We believe that Jesus saved the world so each of us could live more fully, without losing our unique individuality. As we turn to Him, we can grow into the people we were truly meant to be and better serve and love those around us.
One of the best ways to feel closer to Him is by studying the scriptures - the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon. We love the Book of Mormon!
Want to know what the Book of Mormon is? This video does a great job of explaining it quickly!
Would you like a copy of the Book of Mormon? We would love to send you one from our family. We'll highlight some of our favorite verses and send it right to you in the mail from our family. No strings attached!
