Hi I'm Jerry

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Pennsylvania, and now live in Colorado. My wife and I have 7 children. She is an RN,I a business owner.

About Me

My Father joined the Church in Kentucky, along with his parents and siblings. He married my Mother in Pennsylvania. My Mother joined the Church when 2 young missionaries came to our home and taught her the gospel in the mid 1960s. I remember the missionaries visiting the house and offering discussions regarding the Church and the beliefs. I joined the church a few years after Mom, as I waited until I was 8 years old. I still remember the day, and the joy I felt as I entered the waters of baptism and then my Father baptized me. I had the blessing of good parents who cared and loved us, and I am thankful that they taught us the gospel of Jesus Christ. I served a mission in Canada, and love the people in Canada. I learned much from them, even as I taught them the gospel. My first love is my family. I also enjoy sports both as a player and a fan. I also enjoy music, to listen to and to perform as a vocalist.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony that Jesus is the Christ. He lived for us, sharing his teachings and example, and then offered up his life so that we may live again with him and our Father. I am thankful for our Saviour and his resurrection. I believe the Book Of Mormon to be a companion to the Bible offering another testimony of Christ. Joseph Smith Translated the Book of Mormon, and was called of God to restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ, which had been lost for a time, due to apostacy. The Gospel of Jesus Christ is available to all, and has been a guidepost for me and my family. I am thankful for my family to include not only my wife and children, but extended family, and their love.

How I live my faith

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have grown through service. It is often said that as we serve, we gain more than those that we serve. I believe that, to be a fact, as I have had the chance to serve through teaching of others, sharing my testimony and speaking in Church.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries will share with you a message about Jesus Christ and how His atonement can affect all of our lives. They also teach about Jesus's mission on earth, as well as our purpose on earth, and how each of us may return to our Father in Heaven again. Show more Show less
