Hi I'm Van

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Wyoming & Arizona. I have been a finance manager for a semiconductor company for many years. I'm Mormon

About Me

I am the father of 8 wonderful and successful children and married to remarkable lady. We met in High School and married a few years after I returned from seving a mission for the Mormon church in Argentina. I enjoy working with Varsity and Venture Boy Scouts. I love to hike, gardening, excercise and help others.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe that life is a variety of experiences that teach us about ourselves, others and the world around us. I am constantly amazed at the wonders of the earth and the beauty of all Gods creations . I know God exists and that I am one of his creations with opportunity and potential to learn, grow and progress. I find great joy in helping or serving others. I love my wife, children and grandchildren and want them to find happiness , peace and joy in this world and be together through the eternities.

How I live my faith

I like to be out in the beauty of nature and enjoy camping and hiking. I have enjoyed working with young men to help them achieve goals, reach beyond what they think they can do and to advance to become Eagle Scouts. I have 3 sons and 5 daughters. It is a thrill to see them experience life, try hard things, and to achieve goals that are meaningful.
