Hi I'm Lloyd

I grew up in the Northern California. I have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker for forty years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for over forty-one years. My wife and I have five children and fifteen grandchildren. I enjoy hiking, reading, watching sports and playing golf. My life revolves around my family and my faith. I try to blend my values into the counseling I do as a therapist. After receiving my Master Degree I spent four years in the Army. Since then I have worked for agencies doing counseling and facilitating adoptions. We currently live in Oregon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always known that there is a God. I consider Him to be my Father-in-Heaven. Since a child I have felt His presence in my life. My family is the most important part of my life. The Mormon Church teaches that families can be together forever. I cannot picture Heaven as being a happy place if I can't have my family with me. I know that God lives. I know that life is eternal. I am grateful that Father has given us a plan whereby we can return to His presence. I do not see any other church that provides a way for me to be with my family forever.

How I live my faith

I have always tried to be actively involved with my community. I have been active in the Boy Scouts of America for many years. I am an Eagle Scout. I have served as a scout master, venture coach, committee member, commissioner and I am currently on the executive board for the Pacific/Cascade Council of BSA. I have always been actively involved as a volunteer in my community and church, working mostly with young people. Working with the youth makes me feel young. A prophet once said, "...when you are in the service of your fellow beings, you are only in the service of your God." I have always tried to live a life of integrity and honor.
