Hi I'm Anthony

I grew up in Castlemaine, Victoria, I run my own business and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married for 12 years and have 2 wonderful children. I run a funds management business and when I can maintain my consistancy, love to compete in endurance races with my brothers and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

After being raised within the faith by my family, I felt a pressing need around the age of 18 to find out individually if the church was true. I put a simple promise into place found in the Book of Mormon, which was to read it through and then of my own accord pray and seek an answer for myself. I did this when I had moved from home to attend university. To me confirmation came and I have never looked back. My life has never been the same since. My life is full of optismism and joy.

How I live my faith

I currently participate in the church as a "Stake President". This term refers to a leadership position were I assist the serving Bishops of the church. I also help increase the faith & testimony of our members. While there are many wonderful things you can acheive in your life, helping people become better each day provides me with real joy.

Who are the Mormons?

Anthony
The term “Mormon” is a nickname for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Members are often referred to as “Mormons,” “Latter-day Saints,” or “LDS.” The term “Saint” means “member.” The Church was restored in 1830 in upstate New York with Joseph Smith as its first prophet and president. Today it is headquartered in Salt Lake City, with President Thomas S Monson as the present prophet. There are now over 14 million members in 176 countries and territories. About 6 million of these are in the United States. As one of the fastest growing Christian faiths in the world, we complete a new chapel every working day. Members pay a tithe, which is 10 percent of their income, making this and other programs possible. Local congregations are led by volunteer, unpaid members. Both men and women serve in assigned leadership positions. Show more Show less
