Hi I'm Roxy

I am a retired prison guard/Husband,&father of 10, & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I collect firearms, & am working on an old 1946 Chevy 1.5 ton flatbed truck. I enjoy cutting firewood and farm-type chores. I am electronically challenged, & am considered "Old School" by my friends and family. Father of 10 (5&5, boy-girl-boy-girl all the way to #10) Grandpa to16 grandkids. Friend to all who are willing to help themselves, & trying to appreciate the fact that there are now, have always been, and will probably always be those in our society that are unwilling to help themselves, and who depend on the rest of us for support. The Lord is clear that we need to help them as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I had a friend at work who asked me if I would be interested in listening to a couple of young men explain what his beliefs were concerning Religion. I don't remember the substance of that first meeting, But for the first time in my life, I felt the Spirit when these young men entered my home. I knew I wanted to feel that again, so I invited them back...We were baptized two months later. Just like you, this life has not been an easy one for me and my family, but through it all, The Lord has been here for us when we needed him, and especially when we have asked Him to help us with problems..

How I live my faith

I have some families that I watch over, and provide assistence to if they need help. I find that this helps me much more than it helps them. I can not explain how this works, but the feeling it gives me is a special one I cherish. My wife & I go to Church on Sundays, and it is gratifying That from the first day we moved into this area, we had instant friends that we continue to get to know. We help each other out, and our Church is a Community within a community, If that makes sense. We have a sense of belonging!

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

A new concept to me was that we refrain from using Alcohol, Tobacco, Coffee, &Tea. This was hard for me at first, but after I conquered my dependence on them, I felt like I was freed from something. It was strange, but I didn't feel I was "hooked" on anything until after I got over being Hooked. Strange, but true, at least for me. I have found that anything worth doing is hard to do, and Church is no different than achieving anything worthy in life. You have to struggle with newness, fight to overcome harmful habits..It's the same things that early Christians faced, and that we all face today. Some things take a lifetime to change, & some are simple to do. Your issues will be different than others are, soo, be tolerant of others, & hope they are tolerant of you & Yours :) There are some who chose to face things...and others who would rather not. If you are the type of person who is unafraid of truth, In fact, that desires Truth, then I simply ask you to examine this Church and put its Claims to the test. God is no respecter of persons, and will answer your earnest prayers concerning the validity of these claims. Show more Show less
