Hi I'm Byron

I lived on a farm in Utah but went to Junior High & High School in New Zealand. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in the church as the youngest of eight siblings. I love to read and share the new truths(ideas) I have learned. At age 13, my parents were called by our Prophet to go on a labor mission to New Zealand. I felt that my world had ended. The experience of attending Junior High, and High School in New Zealand, with an envionment so different than that of a farm boy. The new friends I made, the different types of sports played, has become some of my most choice memories. I have enjoyed meeting all types of people thru out my life. I have been married to the same beautiful woman for 47 years. I have four children and 10 grand children. I am proud of every one! They are striving to be like our Savior Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Even thou I was born into a Mormon Family and baptized at age eight. I had to get my own trestimony(belief) of the truth. I had to do exactly what is asked of all people that investigate our Church. Believe that God will answer our sincere prayer to know if the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith was God's prophet that restored The Gospel of Jesus Christ back to the earth with the necessary Priesthood authority to act is God's name on earth. I did pray, and I know that The Church of Jesus Christ has been restored back to earth, that Priesthood Authority is again on the earth. I am doing exactly what my Heavenly Father wants me to do. Strive each day to be a better follower of Jesus Christ as a member of His Church

How I live my faith

I serve in any calling that is asked of me. I have been both a youth and adult teacher. I have held leadership positions over the youth . I have been a leader of mens groups in our ward(congregation). I and a companion visit assigned families each month to help those families, both spiritualy and temporily. I have done countless service projects for many different causes over the years. My best calling has been as a husband and father. I am currently serving a Senior Mission with my wife. We will be gone from our home for 23 months and will devote all our time in building up Christ's Church on earth.
