Hi I'm Kerry

I traveled the world found what I was looking for. The greatest wife, children and grandchildren any where. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have a great family, 4 children, 3 girls and 1 son. They are all married to great spouses. I have 6 grandchildren (for now). I am a Vietnam Vet, USN, I served on the USS Hornet CVS12. It was a thrill to be part of the recovery of both Apollo 11 and 12. I was working Primary Fly control. Not only did I see it and hear it ....I was part of it. I also served on the USS Hancock CVA19. I was a yellow shirt, FLY 2 PO, then later FLY 1 PO, the stories I can tell! Tumbleweed was my call sign, that should tell you a lot. Once I was home from the Navy I started to drive truck..just like my father. It is a profession that I dearly love. I had the opportunity to receive a college education and was going to go to law school. I had been accepted, but a couple of things changed and I went back to driving. One day my wife asked me to get off the road and stay at home with her and our baby girl. I move into management, still in trucking and still doing work that I loved. I am now in Senior Management of a great trucking company, and I am looking forward to the joy and happiness of my "Golden Years".

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon. My family is truly of "Pioneer Stock". Employment caused my wife and I to relocate. When that happened I caused me to really ponder the direction my life was going. While I have always been a member and I have always believed in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have not always been obedient to the Doctrine of Christ. The move helped me realize that I wanted my children to be raised in the Church and taught the things I was taught. This meant that I too must return to Church, and be what I wanted them to be. I chose to choose the way of the Lord. My challenge in my earlier life was that I chose not to obey the "word God". The difference now is simply on of being obedient to the "word of God" May I tell you what I know to be true? I know God lives, I know he knows me name. I know that the Gospel in its fullness has been restored to the earth. I know that God loves me. I know that Jesus Christ is my redeemer. I know he took upon him my sins and short comings and dissapointments. I know the Book of Mormon is another witness of Jesus Christ. I know how the story of life ends! And, I know it is a happy ending.

How I live my faith

I continue to be active in the Church and in the community. I have served on boards of organizations related to my profession. At Church I have been involved with our youth as well as the members of a Branch. I had the opportunity to work under the direction of the Lord and my Leaders to start and build a Branch in my home town. I have served in many callings, from Quorum Leadership, Young Mens President, Bishopric, Branch President, High Council, Temple Worker, and now as a member of a Mission Presidency. I truly love working with a great Mission President and his Etermal Companion, Sisters, and Elders called to our Mission. Simply said "I love everyone I work with and enjoy the happiness the Gospel brings to my life and family (now totaling 16). I hope someday that my Testimony will be instrumental in bringing someone who reads this to the total joy and joyfullness of the Gospel of our Savior Jesus Christ. I am looking forward to continued service, with my wife, for the rest of my life on this earth and "throughout all Eternity".

What are Mormon women like? Do Mormons believe in equality of men and women?

 Mormon women are intelligent, focused, full of love and independent in thought and action and one with the Lord. Yes. Men and women are equal before the Lord and one can not be saved without the other. Show more Show less
