Hi I'm Frank

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a research physicist with the United States Air Force. I have obtained a Bachelor's and Master's degree in physics from Wright State University. I am currently working on a Ph.D from the University of Dayton in Mechanical Engineering. I have four wonderful children that have supported me through the efforts of my education. My wife is currently pregnant with my fifth child.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when I was four. Two missionaries knocked on my door, and like so many young children throughout the world, I was happy to have someone to give me extra attention. Before my sixth birthday, my parents and I met the missionaries at the Salt Lake Temple to be sealed as a family. That began the work of my conversion. In the early part of 1995 I left Ohio for my mission in South Africa. While serving the people of this wonderful country along the coast I was able to grow the knowledge that began in seminary. I was able to obtain and build a testimony of the scriptures as I learned to love the people of South Africa. Since my return I have married a wonderful woman who has helped me raise my children. I now serve in the Branch Presidency of my local unit. This has been a wonderful opportunity for me to experience the love and concern, and helping hand of my Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I have been serving the youth for a number of years. I have two young boys who are learning the gospel from me and other strong men of faith. I serve those of the Dayton area as a counselor in the Branch Presidency. I have learned to include a daily measure of scripture reading to connect with my Father in Heaven's word.
