Hi I'm Gene

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a dad with 6 girls and 1 son. I am a grandfather with 10 grandchildren. I lost my son in an automobile accident 5 years ago. I have an MBA and work as a manager in the integrated circuit industry. I love the outdoors and have worked in the scouting and youth programs for over 30 years. I enjoy shooting sports, hunting, and camping. I enjoy doing things with my hands like building, fixing and making just about anything.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of this church though really became converted to the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the latter part of my teenage years. Looking around me as a teenager, I saw the troubles my classmates had brought into their lives and the protection the standards of the church provided. What as an early youth may have seemed like a burden or restriction became clear as a direction provided for a better way of life. The testimony of a Father in Heaven who loves me and wants to give guidance through a living Prophet has made my life happier even in times of greatest trials. The restored gospel of Jesus Christ answers the questions of life simply and cohesively that seems to be lost in the religions of the day and reduced the mystery of a loving Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I strive to be a good father, actively engage in the raising of my children with a loving and supportive wife. I love to be active with the youth. I have been in Scouting and associated with the youth groups for many years. I spend a week each summer with the teenage young woman teaching them outdoors skills and enjoying nature and the beauty of the out doors. I work with several families in the area as we strengthen each other and provide support and fellowship. I strive to be a good neighbor and friend to all I meet. Live the live I believe the Lord would have me live as an example of him.
