Hi I'm Larry

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a retired Chemical Engineer from a major oil company. I'am a husband married for 44 years. I'am the father of nine children and a grandfather of 16 grandchildren in whom I take great delight. My hobbies are the study of family history and teaching others how to do it. I love learning new things and find the internet a fantastic tool to expedite the learning process. I love listening to TED talks and have particular interest in medical advances and alternative energy development. I love serving in my community and my neighbors.

Why I am a Mormon

My love of Jesus Christ and his restored Church really took on new meaning in my life as I served as missionary at age 19 in Hawaii. I was baptized when eight years old and believed the Church was true primarily because of my parents and teachers at church. The Stresses of the my two year mission caused me to search my soul and to read, study, fast and pray. I truly wanted to have an answer to my prayers about the reality of God and Jesus Christ the actuality of the atonement. I wanted to know if Joseph Smith was a prophet and was the Book of Mormon the word of God. The answer came as my soul was filled with a sweat assurance of the these trues which than lead to a desire to commit myself to serving my God

How I live my faith

On returning from my mission a felt impressed to get married and start a family and at the sometime complete my schooling so I could support my family and have the where with all and time to serve others. I soon met my future companion. Through answer to prayer I felt that she was the one and that we should not delay marriage or children. The way was opened for us both to complete our respective degrees. Soon our first daughter was born. My profession was demanding but I was able to find the time to serve. I spent a great deal of my service working with youth through scouting and teaching religious classes and leading other youth activities. We moved several times and lived on both the west and East coasts
