Hi I'm Duane

I was born and raised in California. I have lived in Northern California for the past 43 years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello, My name is Duane, and I have been a member of the Church for the past 42 years. I am now a Grandfather of 5 grandchildren. Mine has been a very interesting and wonderful life. The Love of family, is the Principle which brought the Gospel into my life many many years ago, while living in Los Angeles. After being told the Church doctrine which says; " Families can be Forever", I went home and prayed about this comment to me, and my life was changed almost overnight. It's been a most wonderful life and journey ever since.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Holy Ghost has touched my spirit with it's influence and power. The Holy Ghost has confirmed to my spirit of the Validity of the teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith.

How I live my faith

I Live my Faith each day, by daily prayer, Scripture Study, and serving my family and others. These activities help nourish my Testimony, as well as my spirit. I have found over the past 42 years, that just as our bodies require nourishment, so also does the spirit require nourishment.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

We come to know our Father in Heaven and his son Jesus Christ, by living his teachings, which includes searching, pondering, and studying the scriptures. It also includes fasting, praying, and applying the teachings of the Prophets, and Apostles. I have found that when serving others, and giving blessings to others, the Holy Spirit will validate my efforts in righteousness. I believe that once we learn a true principle of the Gospel, we must exercise our Faith, and move forward, relying on our Savior Jesus Christ.  Show more Show less
