Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon? As I reflect back at my conversion in 1966 I find that my life has taken a very different course than what it was on because of the my membership, faith, and, influence of the LDS Church. My wife and I were on different course with individual and selfish interests. The church gave us a unified path that gave us common interests, activities, and goals. I stayed active because I found the great positive influence that the church offered as we started our family. The church has a very strong youth program to hedge up against the turmoil of moral storms that wage against our youth these days we now live in. I believe I could not have raised such great kids that are respected members of the LDS Church and community if it were not for the Church. That is why I am a Morman.

How I live my faith

We have learned that life is not easy, that growing older is not for whimps, and that when you climb the ladder to the top of the slide that no one is there to tell us that the slide is greased. We also learned that our grandchildren is the reward we get for not killing our kids when they were teenagers. With that all said, life is really very rewarding and we have enjoyed a very happy marriage and family experience. and continue to enjoy this life that God has granted us. We have learned that our children have all become hardworking, respected, and responsible citizens in the communities that they now live. Even though they are spread from coast to coast we find that we are still a close nit family. That one factor means a lot to us as we get older. It gives us some hope that as we leave this life that our children will do well and work together in whatever they do. We learned that god will bless us and our families as we keep Him at the top of our list of interests. This He has done very abundantly. We are learning that the people and politicians of this great nation of the United States of America will need to turn back to having faith in God, regain honesty and moral integrity as the our forefathers intended if this nation is to continue to be great.
