Hi I'm Wayne

I love anything done in the outdoors like hunting, fishing and riding ATV's. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town Montpelier, Idaho. My mother and older brother live in Boise, Idaho. I like to be out in the mountains. We had ATV's for a lot of years, till we moved to the city. I have five kids, two who are married, one in Rexburg, Idaho. We just opened our home to an exchange student from Ecuador, she is as very special person whom we are getting to know better each day. I have worked some form of Construction most of my life. I enjoy coaching youth basketball, both boys and girls. I have coached for 7 years in the past.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church. I love going to church every Sunday to learn more about my Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. I know I belong to something that is great. I haven't had to worry about my kids making bad choices, because I know what they believe in and we talk about it all the time. I have a great relationship with my wife because of being a Mormon. We have a common goal in life, family and the gospel. I am very active in my Ward. I believe everyone needs a best friend and a something meaningful to do. I believe you get that at church. I know this is the only true church, that Jesus Christ has his hand in the Gospel. I know the Book of Mormon is true, and that Joseph Smith was a true prophet. I have seen how the Gospel can change people and families lives and futures. I proud to be a mormon.

How I live my faith

I enjoy my family every day. We talk about what is going on in their lives and what their dreams and wishes are. I am the Ward Mission Leader, I get to see first hand how the gospel can help people in their lives. I watch the missionaries, who are called by Heavenly Father to teach the gospel, being able to answer question about the gospel like adults. I know these young men are in their late teens or early twenties, but they have the spirit with them. It is with great joy that my youngest son and I get to visit families in the Ward. It gives him a chance to get to know them and be part of the community.
