Hi I'm Bret

I'm a vetran of the U.S. Army. I work in the field of Orthotics & Prosthetics. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a married father of five children. I served in the United States Army for eight years as a combat medic and orthotic specialist. I still work in the field of orthotics & prosthetics. I like everything about airplanes, especially military fighter planes of WWII. I also like working on cars. I once owned a 1970 Plymouth Cuda.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints gives me peace to know that life has a purpose. I know that families can be forever. Through the Gospel of Jesus Christ I have the blessings of listening to a living prophet. He guides and directs the affairs of the Church through direct revelation form the Lord Jesus Christ. In a troubled world it is comforting to know that we have not been left alone to figure things out. I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon. I am reading it again with my wife and I feel the spirit bearing witness of the truthfulness of the things we read. It was written by ancient prophets who lived and walked on the American continent, but it contains messages pertaining to our day. Some of my friends used to tell me my religion is too restrictive, but the principles I have learned by being a "Mormon" have made me free.

How I live my faith

I have held a number of callings in my ward. I have been a Sout Master, Cub Master, Webelos Leader, Sunday School Teacher. I was recently released from serving as the Bishop of our ward and now serve as the Ward Mission Leader. I am active in the community serving on several service projects. I have worked with Habitat for Humanity, Harvesters, and several local food banks. My Faith teaches me to be actively ingaged in a good cause and that is what I try to do.
