Hi I'm clinton vinson

I'm a Mormon. I joined the church in England while I was in the US Air Force. I was 19 and a cook. It was my birthday.

About Me

I work at a major retailer putting out produce. I am married and have no children. I like to go to Disneyland when I can and go to the beach in California. My wife and I both like to travel.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon is my whole life. I knew even when I first went to church in England way back in 1976, that Sunday being my birthday, that the church was different than anything I had ever known. Even that day, I knew I wanted to join the church. Now after all these years, I can't picture my life as anything else than a Mormon. The church has become my way of life. It brings the peace of Christ and the gospel to your life in a way nothing else can. No matter how bad the world becomes we have the gospel and Christ to keep us. This is a gift greater than any other - to have the whole of the gospel. Nothing else in life will help you and keep you like your activity and participation in church. In short, the church is true. I know it. I knew it then and I still do now. Search it out for yourself. You, too, can find that thing you are searching for. It's not in clubs or money, power, status, drugs, or anything else. That empty spot you try to fill is your spirit looking for the whole of the gospel. It is contained in the gospel of Jesus Christ as contained in this church. This is my testimony to you, in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I like to help out in church where I can. Sometimes I use my cooking skills to help at parties. Sometimes I get to help by helping brothers and sisters move or watch their kids, mow their lawn, or string lights for christmas for an elderly neighbor. You just never know where you will be needed. It is always good to be able to help, even if it isn't anything dramatic. It is just nice to know you are a part of something good.
