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?

Bruce
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
