Hi I'm Warren

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Pennsylvania, went to college in Texas, and spent six years as an Air Force pilot. When I got out of the Air Force, I got an MBA and went to work for a very large consumer goods company. Now I work in the finance department for a very large transportation company. I am married to the kindest and most beautiful woman in the state. I cherish and adore her. We have children and grandchildren from the east coast to the west coast of this great country. We look forward to retirement soon, and the opportunity to serve a mission or two for the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe in God the Eternal Father, and in his son Jesus Christ. I am an adult convert to the Mormon Church. Some years ago I found a Book of Mormon in the public library and decided to read it. Once I started I couldn't put it down, and read it cover to cover in a single weekend. Then I read it again, more slowly and pondered it in my heart. And I read it again, and again. Later, I actually met some Mormons. They were all surprised that I had read the book and knew so much about it. They invited me to attend local services, and I accepted. I spent several years thinking about the LDS Church and finally decided to join. I was baptized in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of New Hampshire. It was the best decision of my entire life. This Church is about learning to live life in a way that will lead you to real and lasting happiness. It is the plan of happiness. The Book of Mormon contains the plan of happiness. I know it in my heart, and with all my being. And that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve in the church and the community. I spent ten years as a Boy Scout leader. I teach the adult Sunday School class in my congregation. And my wife and I have worked in the Winter Quarters Temple pretty much since it was opened. We are very busy. But we have family prayers every morning, and every evening, and we read from the scriptures every night after dinner.
