Hi I'm Peter

I'm a life long English Mormon

About Me

I live by the sea in the beautiful English county of Devon with my brown eyed wife and four children. We love the countryside and walking along the sea shore. I am a member of Devon History Society and enjoy historical research. The society have published a couple of my articles about Mormons in Devon. 

Why I am a Mormon

 Our association with the Mormons began when in 1955 my father read a copy of The Book of Mormon and believed it was from God. He had never been to a Mormon meeting but he was convinced the book was true. My parents were baptised and 2 years later I was born. My own conversion began when I was in the late teenage years. I questioned,probed and experimented with my faith. I discovered the spiritual principle of sincerely seeking and finding something. I think God is a rewarder of the seeker. I find Jesus of Nazareth a compelling figure without equal. All of my hope is in him. Without hope in him I have no hope.

How I live my faith

 I think the most important place to live my religion is in my own home and among my neighbours. Religious tolerance is very important to me and being respectful of others view points is crucial. As a youth leader in the church I took a group of teenagers to a local synagogue to learn something of Judaism. It was a great evening. It is very important to me to live my faith in an outward facing manner - to engage other people rather than avoid them.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Peter
A Catholic friend assured me that all Mormons are super rich! I said "all Mormons except me you mean".We laughed about that and I had to inform him he was not correct. We are ordinary people living our lives like most other people, facing challenges like everybody else. We are taught to save for a rainy day and to be self reliant.  Show more Show less
