Hi I'm Milton

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of five children. The oldest is on a mission in Argentina, the next is at college and the last three are at home. I am married to the most wonderful woman in the world. She is truly my best friend. I love spending time with my family. We camp, haul wood, hike and occasionally go fishing. We have a great time together. One of our favorite times of the year is the County Fair. We have been volunteers at the fair for nearly ten years now and love to be involved and watch people having fun at the fair. Another favorite hobby of the family is listening to music, singing and dancing. We love to try and find the most unique versions of recent songs that make them different from the norm. We are a wonderful family who deals with the struggles of life but works together to create success at every opportunity. We love each other and enjoy serving others together.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a senior in high school, I began to notice changes taking place in my life. My interests began to change as I started to think of going to college and entering the world away from home. I wasn't sure where to turn for answers so I began to pray more and study the life of Christ a little more determined. I would still make mistakes and struggle with the decisions of life. However, about a year after I graduated from high school my knowledge of the Gospel really started to grow. I could see Heavenly Father answering my prayers and I wanted more than anything, to serve Him and show Christ how much I loved Him for suffering for my sins and helping me to be able to repent and change. I chose to serve a mission and was called to serve in Anchorage Alaska Mission. What a joyous experience that was. I came to know the Savior more than I could ever imagine. I studied the life of the Prophet Joseph Smith and began to clearly understand the sacrifice he made in translating the Book of Mormon and restoring the church to the earth. While in the mission training center, I decided to try the challenge in Moroni 10:3-5. I decided to ask God if all these things were true. I went to a room, all by myself. i read the Joseph Smith story in Joseph Smith History. I thought about it for a long time and then knelt down to find out if Joseph Smith really had the experience he said he had. I told Heavenly Father that I had read the promises in Moroni. I told Him that I had read Joseph's experience and felt that the things I read were true. I asked Him to confirm to me that the Gospel was true, that the Book of Mormon was true. No sooner did I finish saying those words than the comforting warmth of the Holy Spirit swept over my body. I have never looked back. I have never doubted. I love this Gospel. I know it is true and I love every day as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I love being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I love this little town. I love the people that make each day so unique. Sometimes this little town may feel like its a quiet town with nothing new happening. The reality is that this little town is growing children. The school has had quite a lot of success in sports, academics, and musicals. I work with the young men in their scouting programs and enjoy camping and spending time sitting around the campfire talking about life and all the opportunities it holds in store for these young men. My oldest is on a mission in Argentina. I am so proud of her. She is having a great time sharing the Gospel with the wonderful people in Argentina.
