Hi I'm Bruce Myers

My wife and I joined the church in 1976. We have five grown children and 8 grandchildren with more on the way.

About Me

I am a convert to the church of 35 years. My wife and I have been married for 37 years and have 5 grown children. We met in a differential equations class in college. I have a masters degree in physics and she has a degree in math. I have worked 34 years in the electonics industry. I love camping and many other outdoor activities and spent several years as a scout master. I ride a motorcycle, raise fruit trees, make apple cider, and make maple surup from the maples trees growing around my house.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Mormon Church because I read the Book of Mormon and received a powerful testimony that is was true and the word of God. Over the years I have also seen the very positive inpact being a member of the Chuch and following the commandments of God have had in my life and the lives of my family. Although my children are not perfect, they are all very good, failthful, and happy people who are responsible members of society and love their families. I give the credit for their success in life to a mother who spent time with them and taught them the Gospel. I also believe that the teachings of the Gospel has led to the happy marriage that my wife and I have as well to the other successes we have had in our lives. God has blessed us greatly.

How I live my faith

I attend my Church meetings every week and have done my best to fulfill the several church callings I have received over the years. But most of all I attempt to live the golden rule and treat others as I wish to be treated. The most important person in my life is my wife who I try very hard to make happy. The most enjoyable church calling I have had was as a boy scout master for the troop at chuch. I did this for 8 years. It was great to be outside and at the same time help a number of young men turn in to good, capable, faithful men. I was also a member of the local boy scout district council in charge of teaching other leaders the importance of youth protection policies. When possible I have done service for my local United Way and other organizations. Maybe most importantly, I have learned that helping people who have a need is one of the greatest blessings of following the principals of the Gospel.
