Hi I'm Larry B. Hoopes

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in the church and had acguired by the age of 18 somewhat of a testimony.

About Me

I was born in the church. I had acquired somewhat of a testimony in my earlier years. At 19 I joined the Navy to get a school (Aviation Electronics Tech). During the 4 years in the service I met and Married my wife who was a Methodist at the time. I Later worked for AT&T and retired after 37 years of service. I've worked in many areas of this great country. I have Four children and 12 great grandchildren and feel the church teachings have made a strong impact on them for the good. I love to Trout fish and love the outdoors. I think of the beauty of the land in which the lord has blessed us with.

Why I am a Mormon

I think often of the Missionaries teaching me and my wife about the Gospel. It was then that i decided to read the book of Mormon and find out if the what Moroni 10:3-5 said was true. I did so and as i read ,the spirit of the lord or Holy Ghost was witnessing the truthfulness of what i was reading was true. That experience alone has kept me knowing that not only was the Book of Mormon true but also that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God. That through him the restored gospel could be brought back to the earth again as it was when christ was here. With Gods help it was accomplished.

How I live my faith

I'm active in my local church. I work in the Temple on certain days and also help to do work for others who did not have the opportunity to hear gospel plan of Happiness. I help teach some of the Brethren in our ward on sunday's.
