Hi I'm Jerry

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Husband, Father of 4, Grandfather of 6.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ has not only helped me to be a better husband, father, grandfather and citizen, but it has also helped me to know who I am, why I am here on earth at this time, and my potential if I am faithful throughout my life. I cannot imagine where I would be if I was not led to the knowledge of our Heavenly Father's plan for all His children.

How I live my faith

I strive to live the commandments. I am far from perfect, but as long as I am making forward steps, I have the promise that He will help me along the way. I honor the Priesthood that I have been entrusted with by living the covenants I have made.

What are Mormon Temples used for?

Jerry
We believe that the power Christ gave the Apostles to bind in heaven whatsoever they bound on earth, as stated in Matthew 18:18. In other words, they had, as our Apostles have, the power to seal or connect families to each other for eternity. This, and other sacred ordinances and covenants are made in Holy Temples for the benefit of all mankind who are now living, or who have passed out of this life. Our great interest in Family History stems from our opportunity to provide this blessing to our families that have not had that chance while living. They still have to choice to accept or reject these gifts. Show more Show less

What is done with the tithing that Mormons pay?

Jerry
We are so blessed to have the opportunity to set aside the first 10% of our income to assist the church with it's maintenance and growth. Tithing funds pay for the many buildings and Temples and their maintenance throughout the world. It funds some of our curriculum supplies and things like those who maintain our websites. It generally does not fund the missionary efforts of individuals. Those who serve as missionaries pay their own way, another sacrifice that bears great blessings. Show more Show less
