Hi I'm Jerry

I grew up in Utah and live in NC. I manage an office supply store. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Veitnam veteran. I am married and have three very special daughters. I graduated from a junior college in accounting. I have always worked hard to provide for my family and to be self supporting. One of my hobbies is working with wood. It seems like all my time has been spent trying to make a living but some day I hope to retire and spend time working with wood. I love to heip people but find myself lost for words when in a crowd. I love to be by myself a lot. When I am in a large gathering I would rather be busy helping or doing something rather than socializing. I enjoy seeing nature especially flowers and wild animals.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in Jesus Christ. There isn't another church that can help one to live closer to the Savior and know what the Savior expects of us. The Scriptures are full of his ways and the teachings that the Savior left for all of us to live by. The Savior's church is perfect, however the people within his church are still striving to become perfect. I know of no other religion that can heip one to get closer to the Savior as the Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, (Mormons as many people know us by). Because of the Savior's atoning sacrafice I can be forgiven of my sins, if I repent and do them no more,and be worthy to live with him again some day.

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving in the church. I have held several positions in the church including that of a bishop. I have enjoyed doing the best I can to build and strengthen the Church of Jesus Christ here upon the earth. It has been very rewarding to reach out and uplift my fellowmen and to get to know them for the good things they do. Everyone is a very unique and special person. I know that just like me they also are a child of God. Serving in the Church has helped me to learn about Jesus from the scriptures but also from the people I see and work with at church. Sometimes I learn from those I meet on a day to day basis. I am paid not in money but in blessings that our Father In Heaven gives to us as we are obediant to him. Blessings are also received when we serve our Father In Heaven in the callings we are given in His Church.

Are Mormons Christians?

We as Mormon worship Jesus Christ and Our Father In Heaven. Yes we are Christians. We believe in the Savior that one finds in the New and Old Testament. Our lives are centered on the teaching found in the New and Old Testimant along with other scriptures that help to strenghen and clearify those teaching in the New and Old testiment. We believe that the Savior is the head of our Church. The Church of Jesus Chirst is set up the same way it was when the Savior lived upon the earth. Show more Show less
