Hi I'm Jerry

I'm from Arizona. I have a great wife & six wonderful children. I'm an attorney & own a real estate investment firm & I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised and still live in Arizona with my wonderful wife and our six children. We enjoy spending time as a family participating in outdoor activities such as camping, hiking and playing sports. We also enjoy watching movies and eating the great food that my wife makes from scratch for us. I am an attorney with an accounting background and I work in the real estate field. We also enjoy spending time with friends and family and getting to know new neighbors.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for 30 years and I feel that belonging to the church has brought great blessings to me and my family. These blessings have come in many different ways including having direction in my life and true principles that have guided my decision making. I feel that through the things I have learned in this church my life has a strong purpose. There have been many times in my life, especially as a parent, where I have needed help and the principles taught in this church have provided answers. I believe this to be Jesus Christ's church and I have my own knowledge that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I have learned so much reading it. I also know that Joseph Smith was called by our Heavenly Father to be a prophet. I am grateful that God continues to give us more guidance through prophets today. I am grateful for what these things have meant to me and my family.

How I live my faith

Being involved in this church provides great opportunities to get involved in the community and to provide service. I have been able to participate in both large community service projects and also in small acts of service in individuals homes. I am currently lucky to help out with a youth group that does a variety of activities that build character and teach true principles. In the church we are also taught that families can stay together after this life ends and we are encouraged and taught to do everything we can to strengthen our families. The world today may push on us all kinds of different priorities, but a focus on the family has pushed me to spend more time with my family strengthening my relationships with my wife and children.
