Why I am a Mormon
I've spent my life searching for truths. Science, history, religion, the best truths most useful truths I've found, are those taught by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
What blessings have come through your faith in Jesus Christ?
In 2004 at young womens camp, my wife of 35 years suffered a serious stroke. While she did not quite know who I was at that point, she knew that we belonged to each other. And we do, and being members of the Church is what confirmed that to her, her 1st word to me was "Temple".
Can you talk about the missions of the Church and your participation in them?
As Branch President, I've worked with members, helping them solve problems in their lives. As a family history advisor, I've run a LDS branch family history library. As scoutmaster, I've helped young men set and accomplish goals, and acquire skills. As a father, I've watched over and protected my family. Sent our son on a mission, accepted all callings, fed the ward missionaries, and shared the gospel of Jesus Christ..
In what ways have your prayers been answered?
My whole life is an answer to my youthful prayers. I did not bring that much to the table, but with God's help, I can sometimes be a "silk purse"..Then, of course, there's the rest of the time..:-)
How I live my faith
I've been asked twice to serve by leading the congergation. I've enjoyed those "tours of duty" and interacted with so many wonderful people. I've done my best to be the person the Church taught me God wants me to be. Nowhere near perfect, but heading that way...
