Hi I'm Val

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Nevada. I have four great kids and I am married my awesome wife Ruthe. We like to camp and enjoy the outdoors in the beautiful state of Nevada. I design black powder cannons and love to shoot them as well as building and fabricating just about anything in my machine shop. I am the facilities supervisor at a fire training academy so I play with fire a lot. I was just released the bishop of our ward after serving nearly seven years. The church means everything to me and my family and we very fortunate to belong to it.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and all of my family from all four sides were very early pioneers. But I had my own choice to make when I was older I chose and found out for myself that the church is true and that is how I wanted to raise my own family.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good example, I visit the elderly help my neighbors and live the commandments. We attend our church service as a family every week and try and share our message with others. You might say I try to practice what I preach.
