Hi I'm Dennis

I grew up in Utah, have lived in California, New Mexico and Arizona. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happy man. I have been married for 34 years to a wonderful woman. We have 4 sons, who married 4 exceptional young ladies and we now have 6 special grandchildren. I have worked in the Semi-conductor industry for 32 years and find it to be exhilarating. Continually changing, and exciting. I love competition of any kind and have learned many life lessons from winning and losing. I am especially fond of basketball. I have ridden a motorcycle for many years and love to be out on the open road. I love this good earth and find many parts of it breathtaking. There is so much natural beauty in the world around us. I enjoy traveling with my wife and spending time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I have come to a knowledge that there is more to our existence than the few years we spend on this earth. There is a purpose for us being here and a plan for eternity. Even though I have suffered the loss of close family members in this life, I believe that this separation is temporary. That even though our physical bodies will one day stop moving, our spirits, who we really are, will never end but will exist forever. Then one day as promised by the Savior, our bodies in a perfected state will be reunited again with our spirits and we will enjoy eternity. I know that the fullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ is on the Earth. It has the answers to all of life's questions. What a great blessing and comfort it is to know God's plan for us.

How I live my faith

I have had numerous opportunities to serve others both inside and outside of the church. In a very small way and in all that I do, I try to pattern my life and interactions, after my Savior, Jesus Christ. In a very small way I try to be like him. He was always looking for ways to help others so I try to look for ways to help others. He loved people of all types, in every kind of circumstance, so I am striving to have love for all people, no matter what their situation. He lived what he taught and set a perfect example. I too can live His commandments and strive to be an example to others. He blessed others lives and in a small way I too can bless others lives. He pondered and prayed to His Father in Heaven so I also take time to ponder and pray. I realize that this is a lifelong pursuit and even though I will never be perfect like He is, I find that as I learn of Him and strive to follow Him my life is fulfilled and blessed and it brings me great joy.
