Hi I'm Earl

I am a Mormon. My Church teaches me that I am a spirit child of my Heavenly Father.

About Me

I was born as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints (commonly called "Mormon") I spent 21/2 years in Uruguay, S.A. as a missionary for the Church. I subsequently married a young woman of faith whom I met while going to the university of B.Y.U. We married in the temple in Mesa when I got home from my mission. We have 4 children, 16 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. I graduated from college with a BA degree. Most of my life I have been a salesman, but am now retired.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to continue to be a "Mormon" because my religion shows me a better way of life than the world does. It teaches me a "Law of Health," to keep my body strong. It teaches me that I am a spirit child of God. It teaches me where I came from to mortality, why I am here, and where I am going after I leave mortality. My religion teaches me that families can be together forever throughout eternity.

How I live my faith

I try to live my religion by being a good citizen of my country and my community. I try to be helpful to my neighbors, family and friends. I participate in Church activities as well as community activities.
