Hi I'm Frank

I've lived in 6 states, but not Utah. I help companies identify and manage environmental issues. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy cycling and classical music. I follow current events and sometimes post comments on news stories or opinion pieces I think are significant. My wife and I have two grown children, one of whom is an active member of the church. My father's ancestors joined the church in Wales in the 1840s and crossed the plains with a handcart. My mother joined the church while in high school and was the first Mormon in her family. I grew up in a large family in Southern California, and have lived many places since then. The church offers the Gospel, opportunities to serve, and kind and helpful fellow members in every place where I've lived.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, and at a very young age I had a witness that Heavenly Father knew and loved me, and that He had a plan for us, his children. I am a Mormon now because as a teenager I received a witness through the Holy Ghost that I could repent and receive forgiveness for my sins through faith on Jesus Christ. The same process of prayer and scripture study that brought forgiveness, has also brought inspiration to help make decisions for myself and my family, clearer understanding of the scriptures, and a revealed witness from God that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints is the true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others and seeking to learn more about God and the Gospel. Serving includes being helpful and considerate at home. I find many opportunities for small acts of service in my workplace. The Church also provides many formal and informal opportunities to serve. I especially enjoy opportunities to teach. I have faith in the power of God to direct our lives for good, and live that faith by seeking His guidance through personal prayer and study when I serve other, make plans, or face important decisions.
