Hi I'm John

I'm a Mormon. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, graduated from University of Utah, baptized in Germany at age 30. Temple marriage

About Me

I am a husband and father. I have been an Assistant Scout Master for 11 year old scouts for the last 9 years. Most boys earn Tenderfoot, 2nd Class Scout and 1st Class Scout advancement during their year with me. I am the father of 4 Eagle Scouts and 5 wonderful daughters. I am an active person; snow skier, scuba diver, 5 parachute jumps, flown 3 different small air craft, mountain biker, roller blader, jogger, back packer, and diabetic later in life. By my example my children have earned their college education on their own. I hope they will be interested in an advanced degree as I was.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a husband and father this is why I became a mormon. Family is what life is all about for me. That is my immediate family; my sons and daughter and my extended church family of my ward members. It was not until I live in foreign environment that I realized that this was my hearts desire that I observed growing up, but did not recognize until I as 30. For me Heavenly Father's plan is that of an eternal family; He my father and I his child. I repeat that as a father with my wife and my children to include their children.

How I live my faith

I serve in the Temple in a low calling that I have enjoyed for over 10 years. My wife and I enjoy our children and their wives and continue as a larger family with the addition of sons and daughters share our lives together.
