Hi I'm Terrol
I'm an outdoorsman. I'm a teacher. I'm a Mormon.
I am the father of eight children, ages 19 to 1. I love to be outdoors much as possible--backpacking, hiking, camping. I have a masters degree in American Literature. I love to read--fiction, history, science. I teach the scriptures every day to high school students as my profession.
Why I am a Mormon
I grew up in a Mormon home and I still practice my faith because it provides answers to the most profound of life's questions. It gives me hope and joy. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy.
How I live my faith
I currently serve as bishop in my congregation, meaning I lead a group of about 375 members of the church. I read the scriptures daily. This year I have a goal to read the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants, and Pearl of Great Price (all considered scripture by Latter-day Saints) before 2015.
