Hi I'm Dennis. I'm a normal guy.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born a Mormon, but my parents were not active in the Church at that time; years later, after miraculous experiences, they became active. At age 19, I fulfilled a mission for the Church in Belgium and France and then attended the University of Utah studying Electrical Engineering and Math. I later got an MBA degree from Northwestern University in Chicago. We moved to Denver, Colorado and I worked for 35 years as a management consultant. I am currently retired. My wife and I have been married 43 years and have five children and 19 grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

When Jesus Christ was on the earth, He formed a Church where one could find happiness and know the way to return to our Heavenly Father. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons) is the Savior's Church restored in our day. To me, success in life is simply Peace of Mind. Life is difficult for everyone and no one is exempt from its trials and challenges. Success does not mean financial or material achievements; it is not about awards or power or fame. It is about being happy. I find great joy and peace in knowing where I came from, why I am on the earth, and where I am going after this life. I know my purpose in life. I learn and know of these things through latter-day revelation in the Savior's Church.

How I live my faith

I have been asked to do a number of things in the Church, including being a bishop, a full-time mission president for three years directing over 500 missionaries in Paris, France, and a full-time Temple President for three years in Denver, Colorado. These have been marvelous experiences and have taught me the importance of serving others and in living by the Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit. I have felt this Spirit thousands of times in my life testifying of Jesus Christ as my Savior and of the truthfulness of the Church.
