Hi I'm Lee

I'm a Mormon. I was converted to the church in Montgomery Alabama in 1963 by a neighbor.

About Me

I am a retired executive with the Public Affairs division of a large, global company. I have been married to my wife for 40 years. We have a son and 2 daughters who have given us 7 grandchildren. I graduated from a Methodist College in Montgomery Alabama. I love golf, reading, writing and walking. I love college football especially University of Alabama football. I now own and operate a small real estate agency in Tallahassee. I have traveled America pretty extensively and love my country.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the church by neighbors who were in the Air Force assigned to Gunter AFB in Montgomery, AL. They introduced me to two missionaries. They taught me the message of the restored gospel and I loved every facet of it. I have read the Book of Mormon several times. It truly is a second witness of Jesus Christ of whom the Old and New testaments bear record. I have read those books numerous times. I have applied the teachings of the church in my personal life and have taught them to my children. I believe it has given me and them a foundation built upon a love for and an understanding of Jesus Christ. My church is a very family oriented institution. The church teaches that the family is the basis of all that we do. We cannot be saved without our families.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good neighbor. I have been extensively involved in my community, Tallahassee, FL. I have served as a youth baseball coach, softball coach,baseball league president, high school boosters president. I have also volunteered extensively with American Cancer Socety, Ronald McDonald House, Boy Scouts of America and the YMCA. I am a former member of Kiwanis and the Republican Club of Tallahassee. I try to let people know of my church affiliation in each venue. I am very proud of my church and believe it is a great source of good in our world.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Lee
 Absolutley not. We are usually amongst the first organizations to show up for disaster relief. We help everyone regardless of their church affiliation.  Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Lee
A personal witness that the church is true. That it really is the restoration of the same structure that existed in the Church Christ himself built upon the earth in His time. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Lee
I was saved by the great evangelist, Billy Graham, two times. One was in Jacksonville, Florida and the other was in Montgomery, Alabama. I publicly confessed my allegiance to Jesus Christ by answering his invitation to come forward. I felt good about each of those experiences. However, when he left town I was alone in my beliefs and needed the structure of a church. When I was converted by the Mormons. I was inculcated into a local branch of the church and ordained to the priesthood. I was given assignments to perform for others and always took those assignments to heart. 53 years later I am still firmly in place, in the church doing my best to save myself, my family and others. Mormonism is a committed lifestyle that lifts yourself and those you serve. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Lee
That life began before conception in the womb. See Jeremiah 1st chapter. Also that life continues after our earth existence. Show more Show less
