Hi I'm Spencer H.
I am a husband to a beautiful wife and father to four wonderful children. Some of my hobbies are reading, fishing, spending time with family, and on occasion golfing.
Why I am a Mormon
I grew up a member of the church. My parents and us children where regulars at church. Even though I was born into the church, I still had to learn for myself that the teachings and doctrines of the church are true and what they claim to be. This came by reading the scriptures and prayer. To be honest, as a youth, I would read and it always made sense, I mean I believed it. It wasn't until I prayed about it that I truly gained the testimony of it. I believe this church to be what it claims to be.
How has your knowledge of the Plan of Happiness changed/benefited your life?
I have found that having a proper perspective in life greatly helps to get me through the trials and hardships in life. Life offers a lot of beautiful opportunities as well as gruesome obstacles. I have a belief that I have a loving Father in Heaven that is watching over me, and won't let me suffer through anything that He knows I couldn't bear on my own. I believe there is something better after this life and I wish to live my life the best I can to attain it.
In what ways have your prayers been answered?
I think my prayers are answered. Sometimes not the way that I ask. Looking back, I see that my life is better because of the way my prayers have been answered. I have learned that many times the answers come in a time frame that is not what I want or the way I want. When they do come they are usually obvious.
How I live my faith
I enjoy working with the people that I attend church with. I spend a lot of time with the youth. There are some families I visit on a regular basis. I have developed such good friendships with many of the members. I also am grateful to attend a church with people I grew up. It is so neat to look out and see some of my best friends from High School in the congregation.
