Hi I'm Stan

I grew up on a farm in central Utah. My wife and I raised our family here in Western Washington State. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a proud father of 4 wonderful children and have a beautiful wife who has given her life to myself and our children. I am a very avid BYU Football and Basketball fan and enjoy playing basketball, football and other sports. During my adolecent years in Utah I was able to experience what many people in this day and age are not able to experience. I was raised on a farm where I learned the important principle of hard physical labor. This experience is something that I will forever be grateful for as it has been of value to me as an adult. I now work for a very sucessful aerospace company and in my labors there find myself reaching back to those experiences I had in my youth.

Why I am a Mormon

As a little boy I was taught about Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. I was taught about our Father in Heaven's Plan for all of his children. I felt the spirit touch my heart on many occasions testifying to me that what I was being taught was true. When I turned 8 yrs old I was excited that I could then be baptized and chose to follow Jesus Christ's example and be baptized. I know that the decision I made to follow the Savior was the right decision and I have great faith in Him whom I serve. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and Redeemer and that it is only through Him and His infinite atonement and the principle of repentance that I may return to our Heavenly Home with honor and the hope of Eternal Life. This gospel is my life. It has blessed my life and given me great satisfaction and comfort. I love this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

My current responsibility in the church is serving as the 2nd Councilor to our Bishop. I find great joy in serving with our Bishop and his 1st Councilor as we serve the members of our ward. I strive to do the right things in every aspect of my life. I know that if I follow Jesus Christ and give the best that I have that the best will come back to me. I have been richly blessed all the days of my life and know where those blessings have come from.
