About Me

I’m a husband of 27 years and no matter what I do my lovely wife still keeps me around. I’m a father of 6 children, 23, 21, 21, 17, 15 and 9 years old. I love them with all my heart. When I was younger I competed in football, basketball, track & field, volleyball, softball and Judo. I’ve been a coach for basketball, volleyball and softball teams. Now that I’m older I enjoy watching my kids do the sports. I’m a self defense instructor for children. I enjoy golf, woodworking, singing, frisbee golf, watching my kids perform their talents and spending time with my wife and family.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was young my mother was looking for a church for our family. She brought us to the christian denomination she was raised with but didn't feel it was what our family needed. When she was at our family doctor she brought up the subject and he suggested we investigate the Mormon church. When she went in the doors of the chapel she immediately felt the spirit overcome her. She felt that this was the right church for our family. Upon investigation and many lessons from the missionaries our family was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints. I personally was under 8 years of age so I was baptized later. Even though on paper I was a convert, I was raised in the church and partook of its blessings from a young age. Being a Mormon is more than just attending a church, its a way of life. By following its precepts I receive blessings in my home and in my life that cannot be measured by the world. I enjoy the Holy Ghost in my life and
