Hi I'm Chuck

I'm a father and grandfather. I'm an engineer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've been married to my beautiful wife for 30 years. When we were married, we were sealed for time and for all eternity in a temple of God. We have 5 wonderful children and 2, soon to be 3, perfect grandchildren. I'm an electrical engineer by trade. I love the outdoors, and especially taking my children into the outdoors. Each of my children has been on many backpacking and cross country ski trips. We love taking winter trips, skiing through the snowy mountains to spend the night in a yurt. Or spending a moonlit spring evening in a redrock canyon. I feel God's love for me in the beauty of His creations.

Why I am a Mormon

I find comfort, and answers to my daily challenges, in the scriptures. I love the Bible, and also the Book of Mormon. I have a testimony that the Book of Mormon was translated by Joseph Smith by the power of God, in exactly the way he said it was. Such powerful spiritual truths as are contained in the Book of Mormon could only have come through revelation from God. I served as a missionary for 2 years in Taiwan, and I've traveled enough to witness how the Gospel of Jesus Christ, revealed fully in the Book of Mormon, rings true to sincere inquirers everywhere in the world. I've found by experience that when I read the scriptures and try to follow the guidance I receive there, I am happier and more successful. I am grateful for the presence of a living prophet and apostles on the earth today. I love to hear the counsel of these good men whose wisdom and understanding have been expanded by revelation from God.

How I live my faith

I've often worked with young men in Scouting and priesthood assignments. I love their inquiring faith and enthusiasm for learning. I try to teach my children to have faith, hope and charity. As a family, we look for opportunities to give service. I try to be involved in church, neighborhood and community causes. Because I have faith in God, I feel optimistic about the future my children and grandchildren will live in, in spite of all the problems in the world today.
