Hi I'm Milo

I am a mature person, much closer to the end of life than the beginning and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Idaho but grew up in Arizona. Spent most of my adult life in Virginia and North Carolina. I married, raised a family and lost my wife a few years ago. My children are all married and I currently have 23 grandchildren. I am now retired and living on Social Security, fortunately with good health.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a Mormon. My ancestry goes back to the beginning of the church in 1830. Some of my ancestors helped build the Temple in Kirtland, Ohio and the Temple in Nauvoo, Illinois. Some endured the persecutions in Missouri. They made the difficult journey west and settled in what is now Utah and Idaho. For me the question is, why do I remain a Mormon? The answer is simple. The church, commonly referred to as The Mormon Church, is the church of Jesus Christ restored to its original form. It is led by Apostles and Prophets who receive revelations from God to give us guidance for our day and our time. It is the Kingdom of God on the earth symbolised by the stone cut out of the mountain without hands, as recorded in the second chapter of Daniel. As a Mormon I have all of the Truth that is available in other churches and a lot more. I know who I am. I know where I came from. I know why I am here. And I know what my eternal destiny is.

How I live my faith

I try to live my life by the principles that I know to be true. They are clearly summarised by the Ten Commandments and reduced by Jesus to two simple principles. Love God and love my neighbor. I spent two years of my life sharing what I know to be true with my brothers and sisters in the countries of Peru and Ecuador. I have been a teacher and a leader in my local church. Now that I am retired and have the time I have committed to work in the Temple near my home two days a week.
