Hi I'm Dr. B.
I'm a Librarian and an educator. As a Mormon I believe the glory of God is really intelligence so I share what I know.
I grew up in a Roman Catholic family. My dad was a shift boss in a gambling casino in Las Vegas. As a teenager I met several LDS youth in my high school and at social events. For the most part they were good kids but a few were on the wild side. I had mixed feelings about Mormons but for the most part I had a positive impression. When I was eighteen after reading the Book of Mormon I joined the Church. When I prayed I received a personal revelation and heard the voice of the Spirit as tangibly as a physical one tell me that Book of Mormon was the word of God, that Joesph Smith was a prophet of God, and the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was the only true church on the earth. A year later I went on a mission to the Canada Toronto Mission (M. Russell Ballard). After serving the Lord I went a day after returning home to college where I spent four years studying American History. I eventually majored in library and information studies and became a library director. I have worked for the past twenty years helping people learn accurate and truthful information about many things including religion.
I am married to a wonderful wife who is also a convert that is talented and intelligent. My wife's father is a retired Protestant minister who told me that if God were an anthropomorphic being he would probably be the Mormon God. We have seven daughters and one son. Four of our seven daughters have served as missionaries (Korea Daejeon, Rome Italy, Taiwan Taipei, and Philippines Cebu). I am looking forward in retirement in a few years to going on my own missions with my wife. I love discussing why I am a Mormon.
During the past two years I have been involved in teaching in my church. I have been in the Sunday School presidency where I help prepare and assist teachers to deliver meaningful messages. I also teach from time to time helping students of all ages learn the messages that Christ and his early apostles shared with us.
