Hi I'm Dean

I grew up as a 5th generation Arizona native in a small mountain town - Snowflake. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born the third of 10 children and now have 5 of my own. I am also a grandfather of 7. My family is the greatest joy of my life. I love the outdoors. I garden with modest success. I run a small family business.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised as a Mormon. I wondered as a youth about truth and was anxious about not having any other paradigm than as I was raised. I had many opportunities to compare and observe what makes people happy. I became aware that the Gospel of Jesus Christ provided a path to greater happiness than anything else I saw. I served 2 years in Italy as a missionary and was thrilled to see others embrace the restored Gospel. The scriptures and sincere prayer have always given me a way to search and discover eternal truths. I believe with all my heart that my continued pursuit of this path is the way back to God and the way of happiness in this life.

How I live my faith

I serve the youth in various levels of the Boy Scout program. My family and I gather weekly (Monday night) in a family devotional and FUN time we call Family Home Evening. Our married children now do the same in their own families. I try to live the tenets of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in my personal and business life. I am grateful for the principle of repentance because I am not perfect at any of the things I try to do.
