Hi I'm Newel

I grew up in Orange County, California, USA and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was actually born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I grew up in Southern California; Orange County specifically. I went to Brigham Young University, met my dear wife (who grew up in North Carolina), and graduated in accounting. I am a husband and a father of six children. We are blessed to live in the great state of Colorado. I am a certified public accountant and practice accounting in my own firm.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be an active member of my faith because of my belief in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He lives and this is his gospel. I think being a Mormon has made me a better person and more productive member of society. Through my faith I have learned the importance of helping others. The gospel of Jesus Christ is all about helping individuals and others be better people.

How I live my faith

Within the Church, I spend quite a bit of my time teaching others the principals of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In my community, my family and I are actively involved in raising small livestock, the Douglas county fair, and other community programs that involve all of our neighbors.
