Hi I'm Joe

I was raised in So. California and am working in our family business building machinery. I am proud to be a Mormon.

About Me

I competed in track and field in high school and college where I earned my degree in geography. I like learning about cutting edge technology, genealogy and now religion. My wife and I really enjoy having time to ourselves, even if we don't go anywhere.

Why I am a Mormon

I was not raised in any particular religion though my parents took us to a Christian church two or three times. As I attended college I considered myself to be an agnostic because I found it hard to believe what I had heard about God. One day my neighbors invited me to their home to meet with the missionaries who began to teach me about the Mormon church. They told me that Jesus Christ himself had once again established his church just as He had when He was on the earth. The idea that His church was here had not crossed my mind. Why would I want to belong to any other church when I could belong to His church? I was baptized and became a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I had prayed and ask God if it was His church and got my answer. More importantly I have lived the principles taught by the Church and have found them to be true. It has been over forty years now and I have never regretted my decision. My wife and I and our children and grandchildren have all been blessed by this church.

How I live my faith

Over the years I have had many opportunities to serve in my community. Currently I am a member of our city's HAM radio organization and also our church's HAM radio group where we prepare to help our neighbors in the event of a disaster. As a member of the church I have had the privilege of working with the youth in Boy Scouts, teach Sunday School, serve as a missionary for two years in Hong Kong, China, and currently as a councilor to the Bishop.
