Hi I'm Terry

I am a husband, father with five sons two stepdaughters, grandfather with 14 grandchildren and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Indiana and now live in Arizona. Married to the the most patient wife and we have two daughters and five sons between us. We enjoy going to movies and walking together and camping. I enjoy yacht racing/sailing, target shooting and am actively involved in amateur radio. I enjoy teaching amateur radio to newly licensed HAM's for use in emergency or disaster situations to be able to communicate needs to first responders. I am CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) trained and actively work toward being prepared to help anyone in my neighborhood in an emergency situation.

Why I am a Mormon

While in the military in Europe I read the Book of Mormon and very humbly prayed about it's truth fullness and received a strong confirmation from the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon was the true word of God and that Joseph Smith was a prophet chosen by the Lord to restore his church on this earth in these latter days. I have faith in Jesus Christ and His atoning sacrifice to allow all to be resurrected and Live in the presence of the Lord and Jesus Christ with our families for eternity.

How I live my faith

One of my callings in the church is communication's specialist where I organize a group of Amateur radio operators that are embedded in the church boundaries to be able to communicate to the local church leaders in a disaster situation. The first priority is to determine the status of our missionaries to let their families know they are okay. I am also a home teacher where I visit families monthly to check on the welfare of the families and tend to needs, if any. This helps the bishop to know the status of each member. I have a strong testimony of Jesus Christ, the head of our church, and His love for me. I am very blessed and am very happy and confident in my daily life.
