Hi I'm Glen

I am an Arizona native. I am a reformed CPA and decided to do something fun so I started Farming! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy gardening, reading and I love being outdoors. For 35 years I was a CPA (certified public accountant), and I disliked being indoors all the time. One of the most enjoyable things about being able to farm now, is I am outside in nature. I have been married to my sweet wife now for 27 years. She too is a CPA. Unlike me however, she loves being a CPA. We always say it's a good thing we married each other, otherwise anyone else we would have married would have been bored; we don't bore each other though. I love wood working, especially making furniture. I enjoy being in the White Mountains in the summer time.

Why I am a Mormon

Initially it was because I had LDS parents, but as I grew up I realized I needed a reason to stay on the path that my parents had so diligently started me on. When I was sixteen I was injured, an injury that left me a paraplegic. When I was in the hospital after my injury I read the Book of Mormon all the way through for the first time. As I prayed about what I read the Spirit of the Holy Ghost confirmed to me that the Book of Mormon was truly the word of God. As time passed and I continued to study the Gospel of Jesus Christ the Spirit confirmed many other great truths. Some of those truths I can testify to is that God lives, that Jesus Christ is the son of God and the author of our eternal salvation, that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and that he was instrumental in the restoration of Christ's church in it's fullness in these the later days. I know the authority of the Priesthood of God resides only in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Saints and that it is led by a prophet of God today. These things I know and are my greatest treasures.

How I live my faith

I work with the young men in our ward. I teach lessons dealing with the gospel of Christ. Also, I help out with the Boy Scout program. I visit monthly with three families that I have been asked to visit. I give aid and encouragement and mainly just try to be their friend. I am 64 and have been a paraplegic now for 48 of those 64 years. Inspite of being in a wheelchair for 48 years I am in good health and good spirits and I attribute much of my good fortune to the teachings of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The teachings of the gospel that discourages the use alcohol, tobacco and other harmful substances and also encourages eating healthy foods and avoiding excesses of behavior have greatly benefited and blessed my life. My service to others in the gospel, also, has stengthened me as I forget my self and realize others have problems just as great as mine. The teachings of the gospel of Christ that require fidelity and loyalty between a man and wife have been an immeasuarable blessing for my wife and me, enabling a love and trust that not only sustains us in the challenges of this life, but will bind us eternally.
