Hi I'm Bruce

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Texas, then moved overseas as a teen and lived in Greece, Egypt, and Switzerland.

About Me

I recently retired after 20 us of teaching Elementary school. I spend a lot of time working in the yard, working with my bees and keeping chickens. I love to travel and look forward to many new adventures.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife and I come form two completely different backgrounds. She grew up as a Lutheran, and I was born into a strong Baptist family. We were married in a Methodist church, mostly for convenience. One day, the missionaries knocked at my door and I suppose I was curious. I had never known any Mormons and didn't know what the theology was about. I invited them to come back at a later date and when they did, their message struck me as truth. I listened to their message with an open mind and my heart told me that this was true.

How I live my faith

Since I retired, I spend a great deal of time working on my family history. Finding names of family members who need temple ordinances completed is a terrific blessing. Taking the names to the temple is an even greater blessing.

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

I love the idea that my wife and I are going to be eternal companions. Having been sealed together in the Temple, we use that as a foundation for our marriage and have been able to teach by example to others how important and special that is. Show more Show less
