Hi I'm Larry

and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an Engineer that loves product development, gardening, music composition, writing and graphic arts. I am the father of 4 children and a grandfather of 2 children.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the beliefs of the Church of Jesus Christ. I find that I am much happier and at peace when I live those beliefs. When I share my faith, I see the benefit that it brings to others. My faith did not grow in one sudden burst of inspiration. Rather it grew slowly over time as I studied, pondered, prayed and practiced what I was learning. I believe in learning by study and also by faith. I study by faith by seaking spiritual as well as physical evidence. Acting on this spiritual and physical evidence is what constitutes faith. I often tell my friends in science and engineering that physical evidence and spiritual evidence play together very well. Our spiritual and physical experiences strengthen each other. Spiritual evidence comes as we study a subject intensly, come to hypothesis and conclusions and then ask our Heavenly Father if we are on the right path. If we are on the right path, we will feel a burning within us, similar to that described by the desciples of Christ as they talked with the ressurected Christ on the road to Damascus. I find it ironic that some of the greatest scientists use these same methods to identify the great discoveries of science, yet they do not understand where these feelings come from. As Paul said in Corinthians 13, we can never come to a full knowledge of the truth in this life. That is for the life to come where all truth will be manifest. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and its teachings. I hope and pray that I may be faithful to the end of my life.

How I live my faith

I ask others if they are comfortable hearing about my faith. Many are interested and allow me to share my faith. I begin each day with a study of the scriptures and a prayer to my Heavenly Father. I find that it fortifies me for the day. I pray for help in my work, study and service and find that inspiration comes to me often.
