Hi I'm Abraham

I love windsurfing, I'm a bit of a nerd, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and a father of three children, and although it is not always 'rosy' I love it, and wouldn't change a thing. I have an intense interest in how things work mechanically, or how they were made, and as a result love to make or fix virtually anything. I love being out in Nature, whether sailing in the ocean, walking through the mountains or anywhere in between, you name it - it'll probably interest me at least once.

Why I am a Mormon

As my parents are members, I was born and raised a member of the church. This didn't mean I wasn't free to make my own choices. There came a time in my life where I had to know for myself whether what I had been taught was correct or not. I realised that I could not live my whole life based around what I had been taught without knowing for sure its authenticity. To me, it did not make sense to put so much effort into something if it were not true. So, I went directly to the one source who could help me know for sure - I asked God if what I had been taught was correct, and through the Holy Ghost, I received an unquestionable answer.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is more than just rolling up on Sunday for a few meetings, it is choosing to live particular standards in all facets of your life, and that is how I try to live my faith. During the week at work, I try to act the same way as I would on Sunday. This does not mean I can't have fun, in fact fun is one of my favourite things. It is obvious that it would be much 'easier' to adopt lower standards and just do whatever, but if there is a purpose to this life - and there is, then just doing whatever may lead you just anywhere instead of where you want to be. I will be the first to admit I am not perfect, but I am trying to be the type of person I expect others to be, and that is not exclusive only to when others can see me
