Hi I'm Dennis

I grew up in the San Gabriel Valley, east of Los Angeles. I love to do genealogy and family history.

About Me

I am a retired father of 6 grown children with families of their own. I have 21 grandchildren. I spend most of my time helping take care of grandchildren. Would I like to travel?... sit on the porch and relax?... hike the hills? Maybe... but I am mostly doing what I love to do... supporting my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been active and involved in my local Mormon Church ever since I was a teenager. There were many times I did not want to go to Church, but when it was over, I was always glad I did. I didn't take the kids to Church only because it was good for them. I believe in Jesus Christ. My witness is that only through Jesus Christ can you obtain happiness in this life.

How I live my faith

I have been retired from the Department of the Navy for 9 years. As a retiree, I am called on a lot during the week to help other people who are in need. My faith gives me this opportunity to serve my fellow church members and my neighbors. There are opportunities to serve everywhere I turn. Service keeps me active and involved in people's lives.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A "testimony" is the witness I have received through the Holy Spirit. This witness has come to me because I sought it. I read the scriptures, live the principles Christ taught, and do my best to raise our children to be productive citizens. We didn't always know whether we were doing the right things, but we knew the Lord would guide us, and He has. Over these many years, the Holy Spirit has prompted us, enlightened us, and helped us be better parents.   Show more Show less
