Hi I'm Don

I'm a Mormon. and sometimes surprised but would't have it any other way. What a great life it has been.

About Me

Ah yes, retired accountant, HAM operator, fix old motorcycles, hobby machinist and best of all; a Grandad to 8. father to four great sons and busier than I ever have been. I just don't know how it all got done before.

Why I am a Mormon

Having been challenged over and over by some preachers to read the Bible, I finally did, cover to cover in one month. When it came time to visit again they couldn't explain some of their doctrine or maybe I should say, they couldn't support it by the Bible. Other points I asked them about they could not explane. Now what? I visited numerous churches and pretty much found the same thing. I kind of gave up untill I talked to my neighbor and he told me about his church, The church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints (The Mormons). He gave me some books to read and the more I read the more I found it was in harmony with all my Bible understanding I had found in my reading. Then having a spiritual assurance that I was on the right track I was baptized and everything just got better and better from there. I kind of wish I could do it over again. What a great time that was.

How I live my faith

I currently visit some LDS families each month to see if they are doing well or need help and have grown to love them. I also help with the Sunday School organization in the area and meet so many great folks, all trying to serve the Lord.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Don
I have found that the Book of Mormon is really such a great testimony of Jesus Christ and his dealings with all nations of mankind even those here in North and South America. Having read and re-read the Book it continually gives me more insight to what Heavenly Father wants for us and how he has helped others to really find him. It explains many questions about how to live, worship, being sincere and the hereafter. The best part is that it contains a promise that anyone who reads and then really sincerely prays about it will find out on their own if it is true or not. Sounds hard to believe but it is true; I did, I know. Show more Show less
