Hi I'm Don

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very lucky businessman. Started working as a cable TV lineman in Alaska when I was 18 and worked my way up the business ladder when cable TV was hot and moved into cellular telephone business in 1990 when that business was just getting going and have had a wonderful carreer. My life is centered on my family including my incredible wife, five children and five grandchildren. The church provides a way to organize my thoughts and my actions to serve the Lord and a modern Prophet provides direction. Just doesn't get any better!

Why I am a Mormon

Very simple: The Book of Mormon. I was given a copy of the Book of Mormon and started to read it. The Book of Mormon is scripture and it is impossible to read the book and not know that. I started with an absolute testimony of the Book of Mormon and then added to that. If the Church of Jesus Christ follows and believes in the Book of Mormon, then I will join. It did and I did. If the programs follow the Book of Mormon and the teachings of Jesus Christ I will participate. They do and I do. Very simple. I joined the Mormon church when I was 24 because I knew the Book of Mormon was true and the chuch made sense. It answered my questions, gave me hope and offered a path. I did not live church standards prior to joining the church, not even close. I was amazed that through the Atonement of Jesus Christ I had the opportunity to put all of that behind me and move on. I love the Gospel and it continues to make sense and bring me peace.

How I live my faith

I love serving as the Ward Clerk, a member of the Bishopric responsible for record keeping. I get to have all of the fun with all of the responsibility falling to others. Working with both members and non-members in the community is wonderful. Follow the Golden Rule and life is good.

Who are the Mormons?

Don
Mormon's are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. To be baptized is to agree to live the laws and commandments of the Gospel and to love our neighbors. Incredible opportunity and happiness is found in the Gospel. Show more Show less
