Hi I'm Jerry

I am a school administrator who loves his wife, family and job. When I can I escape with my fly rod on quiet streams.

About Me

I am an elementary school principal in a rural community. I love being around children. They are happy and have a lot of energy. They love life. I am a father of 5 girls and 1 boy. I enjoy watching my children participate in music and athletics. I feel the best when I am in the outdoors fishing, backpacking, cutting firewood, picking huckleberries and doing yardwork. My greatest joy is being a husband and father. I have been married for over 25 years and I love my wife more now than ever. I am a grandfather and I love it!

Why I am a Mormon

My mother and father are both converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I was raised in the church and baptised at the age of 8. I am grateful to have been a member of the church all of my life. I do remember the time in my life where I had a choice to make regarding my membership in the church. It was time for me to learn for myself the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have read and studied the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible. I love the New Testament and to study the life of my Savior Jesus Christ. I also love to read the Book of Mormon and to apply the teachings of both books in my life. I have a firm belief in Jesus Christ. He is my Savior and Redeemer. He atoned for my sins and I will be forever grateful for His sacrafice for me. I pray daily to my Heavenly Father and receive answers and comfort through prayer. I know that there is a Father in Heaven who knows me individually and blesses me when I am obedient to his commandments.

How I live my faith

I have worked with the youth in the church for most of my adult life in the church. I love working with others to plan activities and events that are fun and wholesome for the youth to participate in. I have been in leadership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for most of my adult life. I get to see the most beautiful country with the kindest of people working hard to serve their Heavenly Father. My goal is to always live my faith every day of the week and to be obedient to the commandments of a loving Father in Heaven.
