Hi I'm Harry

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I hold a bachelors degree in Electrical Engineering from Arizona State University and work for a local contractor to the US Department of Defense. I am a father of two children, a boy and a girl and have been married to my wife for nearly 25 years. I served my church as a missionary to the people in Melbourne, Australia and learned Italian before leaving in order to communicate with the many Italian immigrants there. I enjoy physical activity such as playing basketball and lifting weights. I enjoy hunting in many forms and being in the outdoors to enjoy God's creations. I am a movie buff and watch as many good and uplifting movies as I can identify. I also enjoy doing family history research. I enjoy listening to music and enjoy performing it also. Most of all, I enjoy being with other people and associating with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know through personal revelation that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only way in which I can find complete happiness in this life and continue to enjoy a fullness of happiness after I die, in association with my family members. I was born into the church and I have found that in every instance, when I choose to follow the commandments of God as revealed through his living prophets that I am blessed and happy. When I choose to be stubborn or decide that I know myself better than God, I find that life becomes difficult and I am soon unhappy until I decide choose and follow that path that I was told to in the first place. Purely and simply, I am a Mormon because I find joy in living the way the Savior taught.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to lead my family by example, by trying to do good to all around me. I live my faith by trying not to judge others until I know more about them and then I try to empathize with who they are and try to be understanding of why they are that way. I live my faith by faithfully attending my church meetings each week and remembering Jesus Christ and the example that he set. I live my faith by actively seeking those who are in need of help and giving them assistance that they cannot provide themselves. One of my assignments in the church is to teach others how to seek out their kindred dead, to identify who they are, and to then extend the same blessings of the gospel that they enjoy by acting as a proxy for these deceased anscestors in receiving ordinances of salvation and exaltation.
