Hi I'm Joe

I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio. I'm a Sales Professional. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an acrondroplasia dwarf or refer to as a little person. I'm a stepfather of 3 adult children and 7 grandchildren. I always enjoy my family being around during our busy schedules. I'm a sales professional for a Telecommunications company. I love watching football, baseball and basketball in person or on tv. More importantly I enjoy the time I have with my wife on my days off from work. We enjoy going out to eat, movies and visiting family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduce to the church when I first met my wife. I accepted the invitation from my wife to visit her church. I wasn't familiar with the Mormon religion or their beliefs. The only thing I recall, as a child, was hearing the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. When I stepped into my wife's church I was taken back from the welcome that I received from the congregation. They didn't know who I was, but they all welcome me as if I was their brother that they haven't seen in years. The feeling that I felt at that time was like a warmth come over my body. Now that I have been a member for over 20 years and when I recall how I was introduce to the church it was the Holy Spirit that I was feeling at that point in time. I was willing and eager to listen to the missionaries and receive the discussions. I am grateful for the patience of those Missionaries at that time and grateful for my eternal wife to have the patience with me as I was learning the basic teachings of the church. I am eternally grateful that we have the gospel in our lives and the blessings that we receive come from Our Heavenly Father, through Our Savior, Jesus Christ. I have received many blessings and continue to strive to do the very best during these turbulent times. I'm very grateful to have my wife, my family and this true church in my life.

How I live my faith

I have served in the capacity as a teacher in many callings. I have served as an executive secretary for many years and currently serving as an assistant to the High Priest Group in our Ward.
