Hi I'm Bruce
Hi! I'm the father of 4 children who are all wonderful, and married to a great woman who shares my core values and beliefs. I enjoy hiking, camping, fixing things, genealogy, and even though I do it all day long for my employment, I still enjoy working on computers in my spare time.
Why I am a Mormon
Well at first I didn't have much say - I was born into a Mormon family. But I developed a testimony and know that this is how my Father in Heaven would have me live. I wouldn't want it any other way.
How has the Book of Mormon helped you understand the purpose of life?
The Book of Mormon does a great job at answering the questions of what is important in this life, and why we need to do right here, because it will determine where we go after this life is over.
How has attending Church services helped you?
It is a great reminder of what God wants me to do and be. It also presents me with ways to serve my fellow man and help my fellow man in strengthening our faith together.
What have you done successfully to shield your family from unwanted influences?
We try to lead a simple life, not getting caught up in all the cares of the world. We don't hide from the world, but by staying focused on what is most important, the negative worldly influences tend to not be a part of our lives.
How I live my faith
I try to keep the commandments of God, be kind to others and just be Christ-like. Living your faith happens as much in every small choice you make, as well as the big ones. I serve others in Church, and try to be a good neighbor. Raising my family in the "admonition of the Lord" is also important to me. I see the blessings of the Lord in my life, when I choose to do what I feel is right.
