Hi I'm Glenn

I live in Utah. I work as a self employed owner-driver. I am grateful for my LDS faith and membership.

About Me

I am humbled to be a Mormon, a father of 5 beautiful boys now all young men and a husband for 32 years to the most gracious, loving and intuitive wife anywhere. I own a Peterbilt. I haul specialty equipment in the West. I love the Lord , He helps me through all the rough spots and illuminates all the beauty that surrounds us.

Why I am a Mormon

In the creation of our earthly existence there is a plan. With that plan from our Father in Heaven and his son, Jesus Christ there is organization. I discovered that obeying his commandments and serving others completes a divine mission for our Savior, our families and for ourselves. I testify that this bold, elegant but simple creed can lift our spirits, ignite a cause for common good and solve world problems. This is why I am a Christian. This is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a priesthood holder. I take my priesthood sacredly and seriously. I volunteer my time in serving the needs of my community by visiting members and neighbors and teaching them about the Gospel and working on projects like our newly created neighborhood park, laying sod shoulder to shoulder with others who are committed to the same.. Currently, I serve in a church council position that conduct the affairs of several close "wards", neighborhoods organized in what our Church calls a "stake". In my family life, as a husband and father of 5 , we hold regular meetings and discussions, read scriptures and pray together. We know that the teacher and the student both learn together and both are edified in their duty and love for God and each other.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

Glenn
As a Mormon and as a Christian it is my duty and my responsibility to find out just what the Lord expects of me and how I can become an instrument in his hands. It is not enough for me to accept the Lord as King but to do his work, a work that I know he has reserved for me in the last days. To teach others the truth about the restoration of the Gospel and his holy priesthood, to perform vicarious works of saving ordinances for those whos time has passed without this knowledge and to let the Savior into my life in such a way that I can be more perfect has he taught us in Matthew 5:48 ......be ye therefore perfect even as your Father in Heaven is perfect. He has given us this charge not only as priesthood holders but as men and women of the world everywhere. This drives the faith I have into an increasingly positive direction, knowing him and becoming more like him each and every day. Show more Show less

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Glenn
In short, following the counsel of our prophets and leaders, gains us understanding, joy and hope for a better life. The Word of Wisdom, found in Section 89 of our modern scripture known as the Doctrine and Covenants, informs us of the need for nourishment to both body and spirit, and the abstinence of unlawful concoctions which the world at large refuses to accept. As faithful Latter Day Saints, we uphold such counsel which is to avoid strong and unlawful concoctions but also to what we should be partaking of to enhance our betterment of both body and soul. Yes, members can and do interpret this doctrine differently depending on their personal view. But look at some of the simple advice contained therein such as eating whole grains or eating meat sparingly. Avoiding obvious destructive habits like illegal drugs, alcohol and tobacco. There are no secrets here, but there are hidden treasures, only treasures that the purveyor of this doctrine fully understands. Live its teachings and find out how powerful the Lord is when you bind yourself with his word. Show more Show less
