Hi I'm Chuck

Yes, I am a Mormon, a convert of over 40 years. I never thought that I could do it, but I did and have never regretted.

About Me

I'm a great grandpa. I am retired, I think though sometimes the days are longer and harder than many of those work days when I was employed. I just don't get paid for what I do, in Money, The payment comes in joy with my family. We have always enjoyed out door activities, hunting, fishing, camping, backpacking, boating, wake boarding/surfing, snow skiing. We raised horses for a short time and have always had cats, dogs, birds fish, hamsters and even rats. We like building things and tinkering. Oh yaaah, anything with wheels and a motor ( fast cars, motor cycles, three wheelers, four wheelers, if it runs we like it). We have our times of rest and peace, with puzzles, board games, arts and crafts. Holidays and birthdays are special and we have a lot of them.

Why I am a Mormon

As a young married couple, we had a non aggression pact where religion was concerned. My wife was a less active Mormon while I was an inactive Catholic. There came a time when we felt the need for church. She asked me which one should a attend. I was moved to say, "yours." She was overwhelmed and I was surprised what just came out of my mouth. So we "visited" the Mormon Church for a few weeks. It was a wonderful experience for the entire family. After the Missionaries gave me the old flannel board discussions and asked if I would be baptized, I said "yes" to every bodies surprise. I knew in my heart that I needed to follow the prompting of the Spirit. It was not so important to KNOW the truth in all things. What mattered is what the Church could do for me and my family. That testimony has been been enriched a hundred fold since I agreed to be baptized. I still don't know it all, but I have had the sacredness and truthfulness of what we do and how we live confirmed in so many ways, that I can't deny the testimony and witness of the Spirit in our lives.

How I live my faith

We (this can't be explained as anything singular, as the whole family seems to be involved in most of what we are and do) serve the Savior by serving all of His children through the assignments (callings) that we hold in the Church. We don't choose what we want to do, but follow those that lead us. We have often been in leadership callings and felt the weight of serving others. We try to help those that are in need, in or out of the Church. Most people need a hand up once every so often. It is not always big things that count, but being a friend that is there when needed
