Hi I'm Boyd

I love to spend time with my family in the great outdoors of Alaska. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My Family and I live in Alaska. We love living where we can enjoy so many great outdoor activities. We white water raft, kayak, hike, bike, camp, ride ATVs, fish, hunt big game, and even gather wild blueberries. We love to participate in all kinds of sporting events. It really does not mater what it is we are doing, we just enjoy spending time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raise in the LDS Church. I choose to contiue in this Faith because I have experienced the joy that living the teachings of Jesus Christ can bring into my life and the life of my family. There is peace in a world of turmoil. There is rest in a world of unrest. I know that through service to others and living the commandments I can experience peace and joy. The only way to find peace on this Earth is through obedience to the laws and ordinances of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I believe there are three keys to success in life. Always make yourself available to serve. Always work hard. And always keep Christ the center of your life. Being LDS and making the effort to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, helps me in this endeavor. Service, hard work and Christ equals success... and happiness.

How I live my faith

Being an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints requires a commitment of time and energy. There are no paid ministers. As members, we volunteer our time in perfoming the necessary tasks to ensure the congregation runs smoothly. Each congregation in the LDS Church is organized into a geographical area known as a "ward". Every member who is willing and able is given a job or a task to perform. These assignments are known as "callings". A calling may last a few months or many years. . Every Ward is organized to include programs to meet the needs of children, youth, young adults and adults. Following Christ's example of service to others is the backbone of our Faith. There are many opportunities to serve in ways that will not only benefit fellow members of our Church, but the community as a whole.
