Hi I'm Warren

I'm a Clinical Laboratory Scientist, husband, a father of 4 grown children, 8 grandchildren, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Besides enjoying my work at a medical center for develpmentally disabled, I love trail running, competing in long distance races over mountain trails (my last race was 25K), digital photography (especially children), and mountain climbing. For the last 10 years, I've climbed a 14,000 plus peak with family and friends each year. Due to weather and climbing conditions we haven't always reached the summit, but we've always had a great time working together on a common goal.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the gospel through Mormon friends in the military. Their example of faith, truth and testimony was a big attraction to me. Soon I was curious, desired to learn more, and was taught by the missionaries. Not long afterwards I was baptized, and later married the first Mormon girl I met through my military friends. I know that God lives, that Jesus is the Christ, and that we can find true happiness in this life by following the Savior and living his example. When we keep his commandments, serve others, the Lord blesses us in many ways.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church, I have a calling or job. Mine is to serve as a assistant leader in the men's organization. One thing we do is visit the homes of members in need, and offer help and counsel. I also occasionally teach a class on Sunday, assist in organizing social events, and help clean our chapel every couple months. Sometimes we volunteer at community events. At our last event we helped pick up trash along a creek trail, and another time we helped build a new trail in a state park. When members move, we organize a group to assist in the move in or out.
