Hi I'm Bob

I am a retired engineer, a grandfather, a father, and a husband. I am a son, a grandson, a great grandson and on. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a retired engineer, a grandfather, an uncle, a father, and a husband. I am a son, a brother, a cousin, a nephew, a grandson, a great grandson and on. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert. I was raised in a family that lived our religion through service and prayers for others. I loved God but the various doctrines were confusing. How could there so many different interpretations. God is not the author of confusion. And so I drifted from organized religion. Two Mormon elders knocked on our door and asked to teach us a message of Truth. I was thirty-three and we had two children. Yes, we were searching. The missionaries taught about the nature of God, his Son Jesus Christ and the Holly Ghost. They taught that God speaks through a man called as a Prophet in these latter days just as He did in the days of Adam, Moses and Isaiah. Joseph Smith was such a prophet and Thomas S. Monson is called as a Prophet today. Many men have claimed that mantle over the years. The elders taught that each individual must study and pray for the conformation of this Truth themselves. The Holly Ghost confirmed my prayers.

How I live my faith

Mormonism is a personnel religion. I start and end most days with personnel and family prayers. Somewhere in between I try to read and study scriptures. One aspect of living my faith is living prudently. First of all, we have always paid a full tithe. We have avoided unnecessary debt. For example our 'car payments' have been to a savings account for the next car we needed. We and our children together saved for their education and missions (Yes, we pay for our own full time missions). We maintained 72 hour packs many years before FEMA even existed. Concerning long term food storage, we store what we eat and eat what we store. Needs come first, savings next and then wants. Our family has faced medical and employment difficulties. The Lord has always blessed us with sufficient for our needs.
