Hi I'm Monte

I live on an island in the Salish Sea. I'm a husband, father & grandfather. I own a carpet cleaning business. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband and a father of 7 & grandfather of two (so far!). I enjoy working. My hobbies include carving walking sticks with a high speed engraver tool, trading stock options, riding motorcycles and photography. I served in the military as a recon scout and airborne ranger. I enjoy the jovial side of life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Through my years, I've experienced full activity and zero activity in the church. As I searched and read the scriptures, it was the only 'philosophy' or religion that made complete sense to me. The more I dedicate my life to study and service to others, the more peace and comfort I gain as to the truthfulness of this gospel. The more I read the Book of Mormon, the greater my testimony is strengthened that Joseph Smith was (is) a prophet of God. I'm a Mormon because I choose to be!

How I live my faith

I am assigned to visit and care for 3 families in my branch. As I fulfill this calling, I am blessed to get to know them better and also serve them in a variety of ways. I sometimes change the batteries in the smoke detectors of one of my family's home and am able to watch their homes while away at times. I also interview many of the members throughout the year to make sure their spiritual and temporal needs are being met satisfactorily. I meet and interact with the youth on a weekly basis also. It's very rewarding to be able to give of my time and energy to help make another life easier.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?
