Hi I'm Glendon

I'm a Husband, a Father, an Engineer, a outdoor enthusiast and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

A little about me; I grew up in a small town in NW Colorado. From a young age I spent a lot of time in the outdoors with my family. I love camping, hunting, water sports, sports in general. After high school I decided to attend the Colorado School of Mines and pursue a degree in Civil Engineering. While a senior at mines I met my talented wife, Stacy, as she had returned from her mission in Australia, and we were married the day after I graduated in May of 2000. The same year I began my career for a small consulting engineering firm, which I still work for today even though it has since merged with a larger firm based in California. In 2007 I was invited to join the ownership group, and I am still an Associate Principal. The best thing to happen to Stacy and I over the past 11 years was the birth of our two children. Riley our son in 2004, and Morgan our daughter in 2005. We love our family, and enjoy spending time in the outdoors with them. In fact in the past month we decided to climb Grays Peak (14260 ft) 9 miles. We were proud of them as they were the youngest on the summit that day.

Why I am a Mormon

While I was raised in the church and taught it's precepts from a young age that is not the reason I'm a Mormon. I would say my testimony came much later when I was in college. As any Mormon will say each person has to come to their own understanding and belief of truth. Mine came when I was at a cross road in life, and at the time I was determined that the church may not be for me, that being a "good" person would be enough. But I determined that I would heed the advice of family, and church leaders and put it to the test, and pray to know the truth. The answer to my prayer came in an unexpected way, but it was loud and clear that the church was true. After many personal changes and continued prayer and study, it has brought me to where I am today. Though I am not perfect, an unexpected answer to a prayer is why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Living our faith seems to encompass our entire lives. While I devote time to serving with the young men of our church, and providing service to others, I would say I primarily live my faith in through my family life. Stacy and I work with our children to teach them what we have came to know as truth, but more importantly we try to teach them ways that they can come to this understanding for themselves.
