Hi I'm Howard

I'm a computer programmer, a family history instructor, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in California and grew up in Sacramento. I've spent over 25 years in Law Enforcement at City, County, State and Federal Levels serving a number of them as the Chief of Police of a small Nebraska city. I now am a retired computer programmer who worked for the State of Nebraska for another 20 years. I married my sweetheart in the Oakland, California Temple in 1969. My wife and I had 5 children and they now have given us 16 grandchildren which are our love and delight. I have a strong hobby of photography, computers and family history and will help anyone that is looking to extend their lines beyond where they are. I have several callings in the church including a Family History Consultant, a FamilySearch Service Missionary, I'm the Assistant Director of the local Family History Center, I teach Family History Sunday School class and I'm a Winter Quarter's Temple Ordinance Worker. I love the Lord Jesus Christ and have now been in the church for over 45 years.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I was raised in another faith and went to a church school for eight years and had a lot of questions that could not be answered in my old church. When I heard the restored gospel of Jesus Christ I knew it was true because it answered ALL of my questions. Give it a try and see if you can ask a gospel question that your Mormon friends can't answer. If they can't - they certainly know someone that can!

How I live my faith

My wife and I pray and read the scriptures daily. We work in our callings in the church at least twice a week if not a lot more. We love the people who are our friends in the church.
