Hi I'm Stan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband, father of four daughters, four grandsons and one granddaughter. I work as a research scientist at a major university. I enjoy watching movies, singing, gardening and learning Spanish.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my mother. At an early age, she taught me to pray. As a young child when the missionaries came to teach us, I was able to pray with faith, knowing God would hear and answer my prayer. The Lord answered my prayer and I knew the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was true. That was many years ago. I have spent much of my life studying the Bible, Book of Mormon and other scriptures. Over and over again that answer that was given to as a small boy has been confirmed to me. I can say with assurity that this Church is true and is what it claims to be, the Church of Jesus Christ restored to the earth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. First and foremost, I serve my wife. She is the most important person in my life. Next I serve my children. Since they were young I have taught them of Christ and His gospel. I have tried to be a good example to them of a Christ like life. Second, I server others, some in the community, but mostly at Church through home teaching and serving in various callings in my particular ward.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Stan
As members of the Church we serve without regard to belief or political persuasion. I have served in two hurricanes and two floods. I don't believe that a single roof I patched, yard I cleaned, or wall I repaired belong to a Mormon. We help where it is needed without regard to race or religion. One of my favourite stories happened when supplies where provided by the Church in Indonesia after the terrible tsunami. The Indonesian people, who were mostly Moslem, would announce over the loud speaker that the 'Jesus Church' was delivering another shipment. I can think of no higher compliment. I help others not to covert them or to receive praise or thanks. I serve because I believe that that is what Christ would do if He were there. Show more Show less
