Hi I'm Bruce

I'm a happy husband and father of 3. We've lived in Utah, North Carolina, Texas and Kansas. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to run. For my 40th birthday my wife suggested I run a marathon. I completed a marathon that Fall and I've been running ever since. I work in marketing and communications and more recently in regulatory affairs. My company provides service for people who have hearing loss and I love working with our customers. Most of my free time I spend with my family. We love to watch movies, read books aloud together and few things compare with a family road trip.

Why I am a Mormon

I was baptized a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I turned 8. I have always had an inner assurance that God loves me. In many ways I took the truth of the gospel for granted. As my circle of experience grew and I had the chance to see the myriad of paths available in life, I came to realize the depth of my person conviction and love for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am grateful for the truth of the gospel. I know that being baptized is required to follow Jesus Christ and that my continual striving to obey commandments makes me happy. I believe that Jesus Christ was resurrected and that because he did this, I have faith that he can do everything he said he would do. I believe that I have been and can continue to be forgiven of my sins as I repent and rely on the grace of Jesus Christ and on the merits of our Heavenly Father's Plan of Happiness.

How I live my faith

One of the spectacular things about church is the opportunity it gives me to serve others as a teacher, adviser or other helper. I've learned a lot as I work to prepare myself to teach on Sunday, as I've organized activities or planned ways to serve other people. As a young man, I served as a missionary in Uruguay. I learned then that the gospel has power to raise people up, to encourage and confirm their own worth. God knows all things and has a plan for each of us, his children.
