Hi I'm Boyce

I am a convert to the church. I am 100% Texan. I love to teach and train others that I meet. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a dad with a great family. I have a loving wife and four awesome children. I love to fish, hunt, and play tennis. Traveling is a must when I get the chance to do so. I am a convert to the church and came from the Lutheran religion. I am a teacher of 18 years and love my recent change to middle school. I enjoy every chance I get to visit the Temple.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the LDS church because the gospel began to make sense to me. I never really understood the gospel in my past church that I attended. I sat in on the missionary lessons with my daughter and began to ponder things. I was thankful to have wonderful missionaries and future church friends to help me along the way. After being baptized, I have progressed through many church callings and have been able to baptize and bless my children. The church has made me into a better person and I know that Heavenly Father has a great plan for me.

How I live my faith

I have grown in the church in many ways. My recent calling is the Ward Clerk. I get to meet so many people in this calling. I am active in the church choir and all other service or community activities that we do. When I get the chance, I like to go to the Bishop's Storehouse and fill grocery orders for church members that are in need or to make peanut butter. My family and I try to stick to family home evenings on Monday nights. We enjoy having the missionaries over to our home for food and lessons. Many missionaries have come and gone and are adopted members of our family. I like to say that I have many sons out there. I also like to do missionary work every chance that I get. I have hopes that one day my wife and I can serve a mission.

To what do you attribute the growth of the Church?

The members of the church and the missionaries help people find the true church. We help people see and understand the gospel in its glory. The LDS church helps families come together spiritually and helps people with their everyday struggles. A person can find comfort and blessings within the LDS families and church. Show more Show less
