Hi I'm Melvin

I'm a Mormon. I have been blessed with wonderful parents, a wonderful wife and 6 wonderful children.

About Me

I am a fifth generation member of the church. I was raised on a small family farm in Wyoming. My father was a school teacher and also ran a small family farm. I think the small farm was his method of raising his family. After high school graduation I went on a mission. After my mission I found my wonderful wife while attending college. I finished a Technology Education teaching degree and started teaching school. I am currently teaching at a High School and enjoing my hobby, raising my family of 6 kids, 4 girls with a boy on both ends. We added our first Grand Child this in June, 2010.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member. I have always believed the gospel was true. There came a time in life that I need to know for myself. I read The Book of Mormon many times with my family, but I needed to read it by myself, I did. I also took Moroni’s challenge in Moroni 10: 3-5. I want you to know that I know God lives. This experience here on earth has a purpose. We are not a mistake or an accident. I know God, our Heavenly Father lives I know Jesus is the Christ the very son of our Heavenly Father. I know the Holy Ghost bears witness of these things because I have felt that witness and I know that it is true. I Know God lives. I am not perfect and I am working to improve my life, but my weaknesses do not change the fact that God is real and that he loves us. This is part of my testimony.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith daily in every thing I do and as a complete part of my life. It is the anchor of my life.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Melvin
We respect and revere Joseph Smith in the same way the rest of the Christian world respects and reveres the Old Testament Prophets and the New Testament Apostles. So there is no misunderstanding we respect and revere the Old Testament Prophets and the New Testament Apostles the same way that we respect and revere Joseph Smith. We honor all of God true messengers. Show more Show less
