Hi I'm Boyd

My son says I am an awsome Dad! I have a testimony that Jesus Christ is the Savior of the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love my Family! I have an Amazing wife, and I am the Father of four Children, three boys and one girl. They are my true joy in this life. I am a busy new attorney but the highlight of my day is when I get to go home at the end of a long day to wrestle with my boys, snuggle with my little girl, and hang out with my fun wife.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are Mormons, so I was born a Mormon and have been one my entire life. Although I have always been a Mormon, I have developed my own independent testimony that Jesus Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world, that the Book of Mormon is true and teaches the plain gospel of Jesus Christ, and that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true restored church of Jesus Christ on earth. I guess you could say I have always known these truths from somewhere deep down inside of me. When I hear of them or speak of them I feel the still, peaceful manifestations of the Holy Ghost. It is a witness of truth stronger and more lasting than any recieved by the five senses. It is that feeling that you just know that it is true. This knowlege, and the truths that I feel are my true anchor in life. It doesn't matter what else happens around me, at work, or in the world. I have this anchor that I can always hold on to. A light that always is on and gives me guidance and direction. With this foundation, everything else in life fits into place and is given proper perspective. It is a very solid peaceful foundation.

How I live my faith

There is a song that says "I believe that faith is something real". That is how I feel. I try not to just profess my faith, but to live my faith. I try to teach what I believ to others. I am a cub scout cubmaster, and I try to teach the boys the priciples taught in cub scouts and boy scouts. I have found that they truly compliment the principles taught in gospel of Jesus Christ. Both teach of Duty to God, Duty to Country. Both teach to serve and help others. In addition, I teach a class of 4 year olds every Sunday. The gospel lessons are very basic such as "I am thankful for my family", "I can say I'm sorry", "I am thankful for my eyes" and "I can forgive others". Teaching these very young children these basic principles and seeing their childlike innocence and curiosity just strenthens my own faith that we are all children of a loving Heavenly Father, and that each person is a little miracle. They are four year old fireball miracles wrapped up in the cutest most innocent packages. It is truly a joy. I try to be a good person and citizen in my job and in my community. Most of my co-workers know I am a Mormon and respect my beliefs and standards because they know it is important to me.
