Hi I'm Clif Conner

I work in Health Care in the hill country of Texas, my wife and I have four children and 16 grandchildren, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

In the past I've taught French and Ballroom Dancing, flown B-52s for the Air Force, sold medical equipment, worked in financial services, and been a consultant in Project Management and Process Improvement. My wife and I are living the "happily ever after" part of our marriage: lots of time spent with each other, our children and grand children. We thank our Heavenly Father every day, both for our blessings, which bring us great happiness, and for our adversities, which bring us growth and humility.

Why I am a Mormon

My Mom joined the Mormon Church when I was three years old, and she raised us up faithfully in the Church, but when I was a teenager I began searching for my own information. I visited a number of churches, asked questions of my friends, and asked questions of their pastors. Along the way, I read the Book of Mormon, and put to the test the promise found in Moroni Chapter 10. I prayed and asked God if the Book of Mormon was His word. It took a long time, and a lot of study, but I still recall the day when I was on my knees praying, and the Spirit of the Lord entered my mind and my heart, testifying that the Book of Mormon is His word. I have experienced many miracles in my life, as well as the lives of my family. I can truly say that I would not be alive today but for the power of the priesthood. The Gospel of Jesus Christ, my "forever family," and the opportunity to serve my fellow man are the source of all my happiness.

How I live my faith

My wife and I currently teach a Sunday School class, helping members to prepare to attend the temple and gain the blessings of an eternal family. We also visit some of the other families in our area, looking for opportunities to serve, to teach, and to learn more of the Gospel. Our ward has the opportunity to perform lots of service projects - there's always someone moving in or out of the area, and we help load the truck, serve the food, or clean up when ever there's a need. We all take turns cleaning our chapel.
