Hi I'm Randy Bartlett

I'm a husband and father, a "Tech Exec" problem solver, a singer, a scouter, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Family is central with blessings we are grateful for. I help people succeed. Such as I run consulting engagements, lead IT teams and volunteer groups. Recently with IT we put all things Government on the speed skates of the Internet and roll it out to people and businesses. I enjoy service in scouting, church, community and with friends. When there is time, we garden, raise chickens, ducks, do stained glass and whittleing....and enjoy music ( harp, guitar and a bit of singing). I use some IT magic to record my wife's beautiful harp playing, and publish CDs.

Why I am a Mormon

I sought for and received a personal witness from God regarding the truth of the message of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. At age 16 I determined to find out for myself if the church was true or not. I studied all the scriptures. I determined to do my best to live what they said. I went to other churches too, listened to tv evangelical programs and looked at a variety of sources. I then went to my Father in Heaven in sincere prayer. Not once...but many times over several weeks. A clear and powerful response came, convincing, sweet, happy and undeniable. I have come to know for myself through this and other personal experience that God lives. He is real, and answers sincere prayers in clear, profound, and unmistakeable ways. Many confirming experiences over six decades add up to a simple witness that the "Mormon" Church is all it claims. At the core of this is the clearly seen goodness, stability, integrity, and love that the restored gospel brings to every person and family that receives its message and lives it's principles. The peace and strength shines out, especially during the hard and difficult times we all face...illness, disappointment, and even death. Why am I a Mormon? Because of what living as one has done for me, my family and those I care for.

How I live my faith

Currently I serve 10 congregations (wards and branches) as the regional (Stake) leader. The weekly service hours resemble that of a second job. Some focus areas include service to members, to the local communities, and to assist with world-wide humanitarian aid programs. I also visit several families each month to help or assist, or just leave a Gospel-centered message. I hope to better love God and my fellow man and enjoy association with both.
