Hi I'm Chuck

I'm a Mormon. I was raised in the church and am married to a wonderful woman who converted to the church.

About Me

I was inactive for several years, but have found a lot of joy and comfort in my faith knowing the plan of salvation is active in all of our lives. The Church is focused on the Family, and knowing we can be together as a family unit forever provides comfort as those we love go on to the other side. I am 54 years old and work in the computer field as an IT Manager. My wife is retired from Nursing, and due to the many selfless, dedicated hours of helping others she is now partially disabled and unable to work. We love to travel but are restricted due to her limitations. We have 5 Grandchildren who we love and spoil, and then send them home to Mom and Dad....payback. Our lives are centered around the church and it has given us so much comfort. We have done a lot of Genealogy and are slowly but surely working at getting all the work done for our family.

Why I am a Mormon

I prayed as a youth and gained a testimony through the Holy Spirit that this is the true church, and is led by a Prophet of God on the earth. I have experienced many wonderful experiences by listening to the Holy Ghost and following the promptings I have received because of him.

How I live my faith

I try so hard to follow the commandments and covenants I have made with my Heavenly Father. Do I always suceed? I wish I could say yes, but the fact is as a human being, we all make mistakes. This gives us an opportunity to repent though, and partaking of the sacrament at church each week allows me to cleanse myself and be "reborn" again.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Chuck
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ that we use along with the King James version of the Holy Bible to learn more about the gospel. In particular it documents the visit of our Savior Jesus Christ to the Americas. It contains the fullness of the Gospel but that does not mean there aren't important lessons to learn from the Holy Bible as well. Show more Show less

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Chuck
Nothing could be further from our beliefs. We will help anyone we can, out of love for our brothers and sisters. If you were to research a lot of the calamities around the world, you would see that the Mormon Church is usually one of the first responders to offer aid and assist those who need it, not just Mormons.
