Hi I'm Neil

I'm a Mormon. My family have been LDS since the 1800s. My Grandparents pioneered in WY

About Me

I live in TX, with my wife. We moved here from MI, in Feb. 2009. I retired from Ford Motor Co. at the end of 2001. Since my retirement, we have served as Bishops' Storehouse Managers in Farmington Hills, MI and served at the Mormon Handcart Historical Sites in Wyoming for two summers, 2008 and 2009. We currently own and operate a natural health center. We enjoy our grandchildren and skype with our family every week.

Why I am a Mormon

 The town and school where I grew up was generally Mormon. Primary was walking distance from school and most of us kids just went from school to Primary. The center of the town activity was in one or two blocks which included the school and the church. It was the natural way of life. Our introduction to missionary work was when a young missionary left for or reported on his mission. I am a Mormon because I was born and raised in the church.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith seven days a week. I pray and study scriptures daily. For many people, Mondays are the most difficult day of the week. For me, that is not the case. I find Mondays to be as exhilarating as all of the other days of the week. Perhaps that is because I make sure Sunday is a day of rest. It is kind of like the day we are preparing for Monday through Saturday. I find great satisfaction in my labors and my daily activities. I have retired from my first career and my wife and I are working on our next career. I also find satisfaction in service, mostly the service relative to church assignments. I try to let the Spirit guide me and try to be worthy of that inspiration in everything I do. I trust my example is a positive one to those around me. My family is very important to me and is my past, present and future. From my knowledge of the Plan of Salvation or the Plan of Happiness, this approach to life carries on through the eternities.
