Hi I'm Dee

I'm have 6 children, work with computers, play piano, like to repair things and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I are the parents of six children ranging in age from 7 to 20. I grew up in Northern California, but have lived in Georgia for 22 years. I was a Mormon growing up and served a mission in Montana and Wyoming. I graduated from college with a degree in Computer Science. I currently work for a large company supporting their computer systems. I enjoy music - playing the piano, organ, and conducting choirs. I like good science fiction stories and enjoy watching animated movies with my family. In the summer I enjoy attending Boy Scout camp with my sons.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I want to be and I believe the teachings are true. Although I grew up as a Mormon, I had to decide for myself be an active member. As I've read and studied the Bible and Book of Mormon and prayed, I have felt the confirming peace that what I am reading is true, which can only come from God. I believe God still speaks to people today and wants to help us. I believe he established his church in our time just like in Bible times. I have found my faith in Christ strengthened as I have followed the prophet who leads Christ's church today. I know I can pray for help and get an answer. I believe the answers I have found about God and the meaning of life in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints are correct. I have faith that God has sent a prophet to lead us just like in Bible times.

How I live my faith

Each morning I read my scriptures and pray God will guide me through the day. My job is very busy and there can be a lot of pressure. I try to be patient and kind even when things feel overwhelming. I fear I'm not always succcessful. I have served in many different church positions - Sunday school teacher, organist, pianist, and records clerk. I enjoy the opportunities I have to serve because I am able to work with and help lots of good people. My children are involved in music at school and I enjoy helping build sets for their plays and musicals. As I attend Boy Scout camp each summer, it's fun to see the boys learn and succeed when trying new (and sometimes hard) things. Our family has enjoyed participating in a basketball league sponsored by a Christian church near our home.
