Hi I'm Ted Limb

I was born in Dallas, and grew up in Corpus Christi. There were only two Mormons in my high school. Proudly, I was one of them!

About Me

You could best describe my career history as diversified. Vacuum cleaner salesman, live cameraman, FAA certified flight attendant for a major airline, restaurant manager and computer network security administrator. My wife and I have been married over 16 years... a second marriage for both of us. We had actually dated once as teenagers, and met again some thirty years later at a Church social for singles. Now close to retirement, my time is fully taken up with family, work, Church service and photography, my hobby.

Why I am a Mormon

For a number of years I attended other Christian churches. Their differences were remarkable, considering that their various doctrines were based on the same Bible. There are many intellectual reasons why I choose to be a Mormon, but the real reason is a spiritual conviction that the whole truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is here. It goes far beyond the limited scope of other Christian philosophies. It even answers in detail the deep and basic questions of our true relationship with our Father in Heaven, and his son, Jesus Christ. The full plan for our salvation has been revealed. I am a Mormon because not only has the true Gospel of Jesus Christ been restored to the earth, but also His Church, with the same Priesthood authority and with the same organization as the Church he personally established when he lived on the earth over 2000 years ago. We have a living prophet on the earth today, directing through revelation affairs of the Church.

How I live my faith

The organization of the Church provides opportunities for service. My current service to our congregation is as an assistant minister, working with our Bishop. With nearly 500 members, there are plenty of chances to help others in many ways. This is very rewarding spiritually (there is no paid ministry in the Mormon Church). Along with my full-time job with a major computer software and hardware manufacturing firm, this keeps me quite busy. When time permits, my wife and I help with volunteer community projects.
