Hi I'm Karl

I grew up in Pennsylvania- along the Appalachian trail. I love to learn and to be outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a dad - happily married for 23 years - with 5 wonderful children. One of my loves is the out-of-doors and scouting. I also love singing, photography and gardening.

Why I am a Mormon

There's something very unique about being an active Mormon. Part of it is the peace and happiness I enjoy each day as I know I'm living the way my loving Heavenly Father wants me to. Yes, there are ups and downs, but knowing that He is there to help me on this journey called life means a lot to me. I'm a Mormon because I know that God speaks to men on the earth today just like He did in ancient times. Through a latter-day prophets He reveals His will. The prophet Joseph Smith helped bring forth the Book of Mormon, another witness of Christ. I know this is true because I have studied it and received an answer from God that it is true.

How I live my faith

To me, my religion is a daily and moment-by-moment perception of my life and whether I am living in a way that pleases my Father in Heaven. He is the Father of all of us... and loves us so dearly. He wants what is best for us - and so He's provided some rules for living - that keep us safe and lead to present and future joy. My family life is a big part of that joy. I need not fear that I am alone as a dad. I have great role models in the Church and in the scriptures that help me know how to be the best dad I can be... to bless my wife and children - and to lift their lives as well as all whom I meet.
