Hi I'm Antone

I'm a happy father and husband. I'm an electrical engineer. I'm an outdoorsman in love with Wisconsin. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of two sons, a husband, an electrical engineer. We are empty nesters now – the kids are on their own but live close enough to see them often. I love the outdoors as does my family: visiting National Parks, hiking the Grand Tetons, backpacking the Appalachian Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains, canoeing Minnesota’s Boundary Waters, kayaking Lake Superior’s Apostle Islands, walking the ice of Wisconsin’s winter lakes. At age 19, I was a missionary for the LDS church in Tahiti, French Polynesia and have enjoyed international travel ever since - Russia, Great Britain, Germany, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel, India, China, Taiwan, The Phillipines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Samoa, Hawaii, the islands of French Polynesia. I enjoy the people, the food, and sights.

Why I am a Mormon

To those who believe in God and the Holy Spirit, my answer is, because the Holy Spirit confirms that the doctrine and way of life of the LDS church is the Savior's path. The Spirit confirms this truth to me daily as I serve my fellow men, seriously ponder the meaning of the sacred word of God, sincerely pray to God and then receive the needed help from God, and try continually to pattern my life after the Savior's. To those who have not yet felt the Holy Spirit in their lives, I encourge you to believe that we who write of our belief on this website, know deep down to the core of our souls that this is the Savior's strait gate and narrow way to that eternal life that He promised to all those who ernestly seek Him. I promise that you can know this truth too as you earnestly seek His way through the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

A little bit here, a little bit there. That is, living my faith is done in the small things of life – trying to be honest with others, remembering to be kind to my wife and children, being grateful to my Savior Jesus Christ for his tender mercies toward me and my loved ones. There are some daily habits that help me keep focused on these things: reading and meditating on the Holy word of God – personal time as well as time with my wife, private prayer, family prayer. I attend church worship services weekly. I volunteer time to serve others in the church frequently. We keep ourselves away from substances and material that will affect one's clarity of thought and freedom to make good choices such as marijuana, other illicitly used drugs, alcohol, pornography, sexual relations with anyone other than my wife (including complete abstinence before marriage). Above all, I believe that God loves all of us. We are his children. And I take that to a very personal level – that He loves me. And I love Him. And I trust Him, that He will care for me and my family. I know the Apostle Paul’s statement is true, “…we know that all things work together for good to them that love God”. I know that to be true!
