Hi I'm Arnie

I grew up in Spokane, Washington, USA, am a retired US Army officer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a dairy farm outside Spokane. My wife and I will celebrate our 47th wedding anniversary in November. We've lived in many places in the US and overseas and are the parents of four sons and 11 grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the Church but, like all true converts, received a witness from the Holy Spirit that it is true. This happened whan I was about 16 when my father challenged me to study the scriptures, especially The Book of Mormon, and ask God if it was true.

How I live my faith

Family is key to my spiritual life. The Gospel gives me the opportunity to spend the eternities with my wife, children, and grandchildren. I have served in about every calling in the ward that a man can have.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

No, we're all children of our Heavenly Father and have an obligation to assist all our brothers and sisters. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Prayer, scripture study, and a true desire to know Him. Show more Show less
