Hi I'm Walt

I'm a husband, I'm a father, I'm a grandfather, I'm a high school teacher and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a husband and father with a wonderful wife, two children and three step-children, and a proud grandfather with four wonderful grandchildren. I have been a high school teacher for thirty years and for twenty-five of those years I was a very active high school theatre director.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the truths of the faith bring me strength and comfort. Within the church I find insight, inspiration and direction for life in a challenging world. I was not baptized until I was forty-five and I find amazing comfort and security in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith with joy and peace. I serve as the first counselor to the bishop in my ward and I never cease to be amazed at my Heavenly Father's influence on me with inspiration and guidance in what I should do and say in all circumstances.

What are some things that tell to you there is a God?

I know God lives by the feelings of peace and comfort I have when I pray to Him. I have been helped by His direction and intervention too many times to doubt that He is there; He is real, and He knows me and cares about me. Show more Show less
