Hi I'm Ted

I grew up in Virginia & now live in Arizona with my beautiful family. I love history and travel. I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

I live in Arizona with my wonderful wife and three children. We enjoy family vacations and swimming during the hot summer days. I served a mission in Porto, Portugal from 1993-95. I graduated from Brigham Young University where I met my beautiful wife. We were married in Denver, Colorado and began our lives together as a forever family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that already attended the LDS church. I grew up in Virginia where the LDS community if fairly small. I was one of 6 Mormon kids in my high school. I learned about many religions during my youth. There were many valuable teachings from each one. I feel strongly the Mormon church is the right church for me and my family. It has brought us much joy and happiness in our lives. To know that we can be together not just in this life, but in the afterlife, is a wonderful blessing to me. I love my family and I want nothing more than to always be with them.

How I live my faith

I love serving in my local church and community. I help our bishop (leader of our local congregation) in scheduling his meetings and appointments with members of our congregation. I have also worked with our youth group in the past and really enjoy working with kids of all ages.
