Hi I'm Guenter

In my twenties I traveled quite a bit; now retired still love the outdoors. I am a Mormon, and grateful that I am.

About Me

I am married, retired and for most of the last four decades of my life have lived in the Northwest. My wife and I have raised four wonderful children here. By now they all have moved on and started their own journey through life. Since they all have moved away, my wife and I spend a considerable time visiting them, and since we love to travel this is no problem; it still would be nice to have some of our grandchildren living closer.

Why I am a Mormon

From my earliest childhood on, I never questioned the existence of God. Then reading in a book I had purchased from two young men, I received an answer to a question I had been trying to answer for myself for a long time. This is when the Holy Spirit bore a powerful witness to me that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God, not just a philosopher or great teacher; not that He was that also. As I met with the Mormon Missionaries I got acquainted with the basics of their faith, and after considering what God wanted me to do, I became a Mormon, and have been ever since.

How I live my faith

I try to do the right thing even if, and especially if no one is looking. Do what is right without expecting a reward; do it for just being honest and true. Ride the heights of life without any fanfare, and the valleys without complaints. My faith sustains me through the challenges of life. Have faith and be believing and all things shall work together for your good, is and has been my motto for decades. I try to live as expected from a disciple of Jesus Christ, as a husband, father, grandfather and member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and a responsible member and citizen of my community and society.
