Hi I'm George

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a convert of 37 years. When I was younger I had no interest in religion. I thought through my own experiences that all they were interested in was monetary. I am a guy who has worked at various jobs and love to build and create wood projects. I am an avid reader and I will read books over and over. I have certain authors that I like to read. When I read a book I also have a whiteout pencil with me because I hate the vulgar words authors sometimes use. To me these are fill words and I eliminate them so the next time I read that book I have a good story. My hobbies are woodworking, karate, reading both fiction and factual. I love a good story especially about ancestors and history.

Why I am a Mormon

When I left my church I felt that they didn't care about me, so from the time I was 18-28 I had no interest in religion. This church does care about me and I found their caring genuine. This program is what turned me around when I found out that they really cared about you and your family. I then had the missionaries over and listened to their message. Another was due to a friend that wasn't even LDS. He was taking a religion class at ASU and tole me about how interesting reading the Book of Mormon was to him. I then went home and picked the dusty copy and started to read. I couldn't put it down. I read before work and during all my breaks and when I returned home I would read until 3am. Go to sleep and get up at 5am and do the same thing again until I had read it from cover to cover

How I live my faith

I live my faith by constant in depth study of the scriptures. By working at the Temple each week. This calling helps keep me on the straight and narrow path. The blessings I have received there are too numerous to count and I am uplifted weekly. I also take a religion class which helps me to better read and understand the scriptures and the prophets both ancient and modern. I have had many jobs in the church which have helped me to grow in knowledge. By studying for each lesson, I have to learn and better understand the topic in the class. I have learned as much from the youth as I have from the adults.
