Hi I'm Glenn

I've "been everywhere and done everything." But all along, I've been a Mormon.

About Me

The earliest I can remember about Mormons was that some out-of-town Stake Missionaries came -- year after year. He and I were baptized in the reservoir the summer I was nine. My mother and my brother were baptized in an indoor font in another town a year later. My sisters were baptized when they came of age. I went on a mission to Central America back when those six republics were all one mission. I attended a war and was wounded twice the first day. I taught school five years. I bought and sold military surplus items -- mostly office equipment -- for eight years. I started a local newspaper and published it sixteen years. Now I am retired. Sometimes I buy a sewing machine at a yard sale, repair it -- and just give it some lady at random. I teach Gospel Doctrine Sunday school class in Spanish -- and occasionally in English. I'm a High Priest. I'm one of those rare fellows who was once ordained a Seventy. I published a pamphlet, "The Books of the Heresies of Saint Glenn" explaining some things that the Lord didn't see fit to include in the Bible -- like why the rainbow was such a novelty to Noah in his old age. Sometimes I study German. Sometimes I study Hebrew. I used to study Russian. I send out a weekly e-mail opinion paper called "The Rant of Glenn" to several hundred people.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm with the Apostle who said, "Thou hast the words of eternal life." Most of the other churches have words of eternal life -- but the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has more such words, clearer, easier to understand -- "plain and precious"..

How I live my faith

I go to church almost every Sunday. Sometimes I go on visits with the full-time missionaries. I teach Sunday School -- in Spanish. Occasionally in English. I pay tithing and fast offerings -- and to the missionary fund.. Sometimes I go on service projects to help other people.
