Hi I'm Loren

I grew up in Casa Grande and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm an avid outdoorsman and love to hike. Reptiles have always been an interest to me. Married and a dad. Wife and I love to can our own food.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but like most others have had to find my own testimony as an adult. The truth and the depth of the gospel and doctorine of the L.D.S. church provide all the answers to the reasons we have as humans for our very existance. A truth that has been witnessed to my soul through the Holy Ghost and has given me much peace and joy. I spent many years as an adult without that joy in my life and through troubled times found my way back to the path that has brought such wonder and blessings as one could ever desire. During that period of not being involved in church I felt lost and starved of the inner peace of the spirit and wound up in some lonely places and a life of despair. Through repentance and the help of our saviours atoning sacrifice I was pulled from that despair and given a new life with a new heart with a restart to a wonderful life.

How I live my faith

I have been involved with the youth as the first counselor in the young mens presidency and my wife and I teach the Temple prep class at church. I am also the facilitator in our local addiction recovery program and am a home teacher for persons who have recently been released from prison. I have experienced addiction in my life which led to a prison experience all of which I was able to return from and turn my life around and I have a burning desire to help others who have been down that road and are experiencing the difficulties of that kind of life. I Pray always and love my wife and children who I am very grateful for.
