Love to Coach my kids in sports. I've been a Residential Building Contractor for 25 years. When I have time I love to Fly Fish and Hunt.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in Nebraska as a Mormon. Both my parents were converts in there early twenties. The Church was very small in Nebraska in the 60's and 70's but we were always very active in Church. We as a family participated in and involved ourselves in all the Church had to offer. The teachings and beliefs I learned in my youth helped me navigate through a very difficult enviroment. At a young age the commitment to Serve a Full time Mission for my Church was instilled in my heart and mind. I received my call to serve in the Tempe Arizona Mission. I had the most wonderful experience in my life as I served the Lord In Arizona. On my Mission My Testimony of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ was Increased and solidified. I was In the right place at the right time . This single act of service and commitment has been an ongoing source of guidance and direction in my life. Whenever I have encountered difficulties in my Life and my wife and childrens life, that mission experience has provided me with all the tools to overcome and move forward. What I beleive is who I am. My testimony of the Atonement of Jesus Christ is at the forfront of everything I do.

How I live my faith

As a member of the church of jesus christ of latterday saints the Lord needs us to serve each other . Not only serve other members of the church but also the community. I have helped with all ages of youth and adults in various responsibilities in my church. As well I try and take every opportunity to serve at the kids school. Christ served everyone around him all the time, and I feel it is my duty to do as he did. In my work I am surrounded my all kinds of people from so many backgrounds. I enjoy living my life as an example of the Savior to these various asossiates . Everyone eventually knows who I am and what I beleive by the way I conduct myself. I love who I've become because of the testimony I've attained in the restored gospel of Jesus Christ.
