Hi I'm Randall

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints

About Me

I'm married with a wonderful wife and 6 children and 6 grandchildren, and an Information Technology consultant. in Northern Utah. I enjoy serving in the community and helping others get the most out of technology. In April 2014 I had the great honor of receiving the LDS Business College Distinguished Alumnus Award and spoke at commencement.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a forth generation member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and have a strong foundation in the Gospel through extended family. Even with the strong family ties, each of us must obtain our own conviction through study, prayer and faith. That conviction is a special thing in my life that has grown out of many spiritual experiences and continues to grow each day.

How I live my faith

I feel it is important to serve others and the community. In January of 2014 I began serving as a clerk in our local singles ward (congregation). In the past I've worked with the young men in our congregation as Scoutmaster and advisor in our BSA scout troop. For 10 years (2002-2012) I spent at least one evening a month as a Sign Language specialist at the Bountiful Temple and help the deaf as they come to worship and serve in the Temple. Now I serve as a board member of a local non-profit company, TechCharities.org, that refurbishes computers for those in need. I find the greatest happiness and success comes from serving others.

Who are the Mormons?

"Mormons" are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The nick-name "Mormon" was used by those who are not members of the Church because of the "Book of Mormon". The nick-name stuck over the years and other names like "Mormon Church", "Mormon Temple" and others came about. However, the true name of the church is "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints". I seldom refer to myself as a "Mormon" because I want to make sure others know I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, a follower of Jesus Christ and a true Christian in all aspects.
