Hi I'm Rick Gurney

I was born in Utah lived there for 38 yrs then my wife, 5 kids moved to Az. I love the Church.

About Me

I am 58 years old I have 5 children and a lovely wife, I have the best daughter in laws and son in law that I could ever ask for and we have 9 grand children, I am a painting cont., I have two jobs in the church on is the best job you can have and that is my wife and I work in on of the LDS Temples as a Temple worker the other job is that I am on the Stake High Councel. My family love to go camping, get together as a family and have fun, we like to go the the sand dunes and play with all of our toys, but most of all I love the time that we are all together and just listen to the kids and what is going on in there lifes.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon is that I don't know how other people that don't belive in God get though the day, I was born and raised as a Mormon but my family growing up did not go to church or any part of the church, I had a girl friend that her father told me that if I was to see her on Sundays that I would have to go to church with them, so I started going to church and then I met my wife and she was from a strong LDS family and I just keep going to church, but I still did not fill the spirit, my wife and I was married in the SLC Temple two years after we where married, at that time I just did it for her, years went by the kids grow up and I could see how going to church and realy going for me that I started filling the spirit. Then we went on a trip back to Navoo and I felt the spirit there like I had never felt it before and so I started living the Gospel for me and I soon started filling the spirit more and more, I could see that my family was doing better and that my kids where doing thing that made them a better person, and now I don't know who I could live with out the church and its belifes.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing things that would make other people happy, I try to always keep the spirit with me, I serve in the LDS Tempe on a weekly bases as a Temple worker and my other calling in the church is a High Councilor, I work with 12 other brothern that help the Stake Presidency, I am over the Physical Facilities that is I make sure that the three bldg's are keep up and everything is working, also over the Emergency Preparedness in the Stake to help others be prepared, I am a hometeacher, I care for and look out for two familiys in our ward if there ever need help with anything they know they can call on me.
