Hi I'm Dennis Moss

I am an active father of 6 children. I'm a reformed Marathon Runner. I consult educators in Mississippi. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am excited about life and the many opportunities it offers. Most important to me are my Faith and my Family. I am happily married and am a father to 6 wonderful children ranging from 22 down to 9. I am active in teaching my children values and have fun spending a lot of precious time with them. We enjoy camping, playing sports, traveling, serving in the community and playing games. I feel that community service is important and spent two years as an Elementary PTA President and run an All Pro Dad program from the Elementary and Junior high. I have thoroughly enjoyed my service to the children, parents and teachers of our schools. I enjoy keeping in shape through lap swimming and resistance training. I enjoy racquetball and ping pong. I have run 8 marathons, including Boston, and have kept very active in my life. I had both of my hips replaced in 2011. I enjoy a challenging career in Education consulting since 2009 and am active in my community seeking service opportunities for my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I have felt deep within my heart that the teachings and principals are founded upon the true gospel Jesus Christ taught when He was on the earth. As I have studied and taught the Bible, I have found out first of all that Jesus Christ is my personal Savior, that He loves me personally and that He died for me and was resurrected. I have had my faith confirmed and solidified as I have read and studied the Book of Mormon, another testament of Jesus Christ. I know this record is true. The Holy Spirit has born witness to my heart that it is - I cannot deny it. My testimony of a living, loving Heavenly Father means more to me than anything else and knowing that I can be together with my family after this life is paramount. Because I know the Book of Mormon is true, I know that it's translator, Joseph Smith, was a true prophet of God who restored the fulness of the gospel of Christ to the earth. I am grateful for the knowledge that we have a living prophet on the earth again. I am especially gratefully that we have holy temples where families are sealed together for time and for all eternity, instead of the traditional "till death do you part."

How I live my faith

I strive daily to live according to my values and have found great peace and happiness in doing this. Our family begins each day with family scripture study and prayer. We end our day singing a hymn and having family prayer. Sundays are spent in worship and avoiding activities we would do through the rest of the week. Mondays are set aside for Family Home Evening where we have a spiritual lesson, activity and treat. I believe that service is essential to living the gospel of Jesus Christ so I pray for opportunities to serve my neighbors and community and always involve my children, helping them experience the joy of service. I strive to live my faith each moment of every day and share my faith as often as I can. For my calling in the church, I am assigned to help the unemployed, or underemployed, find work and act as a coach and support to them. I travel out of state every other week and I continue my values on the road. I communicate with my family daily through the computer and cell phone, continuing our routines as if I were home. I begin my days in reading scripture and other words of our living prophets. This consistent study gives me great strength and peace of mind.

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

Dennis Moss
Mormon women are beautiful, pure and chaste. I appreciate the way they dress modestly and live standards of righteousness. They are happy and fun. My wife is the life of the party and does this without being inappropriate in her speech or actions. My 2 daughters stand for truth and right, and value their bodies as sacred temples. They are genuine and confident in themselves. They believe so much in our faith that they devoted 18 months of their lives serving full time missions in Japan and Australia. Mormon men and women share family duties and household responsibilities equally. We share in the cooking, cleaning and raising of our family together. My wife is much better at fixing things than I am, I admit, but I appreciate her being good at so many more things than I am. What's important is that we are both giving our all to make each other happy through service, love and affection. Show more Show less
