Hi I'm Floyd

I’m a retired high school teacher. I have 5 children and 13 grandchildren. I married my wife of 45 years in 1966. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born on a farm in Springfield, Idaho where I learned to drive a tractor at age 10, mow and haul hay, shock grain, clean ditches, milk cows, ride horses, pick and haul potatoes, and brand cows. I have four sisters (one still living) and one brother. I went to grade school in a three-room school with eight grades. I graduated from Blackfoot High School in 1955 and went to college earning a BS, MS, and an Ed.D. I am currently retired living in Queen Creek, AZ.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ. I love the way our Savior came to the world and taught us how to live by the example He set, sacrificed His life for us, and provided the resurrection so that we can live after this life. I am a Mormon because I know that by following our Savior and living His teachings we can live with Him and our Father in heaven when we leave this earth.

How I live my faith

My wife and I spent a year in Arkansas as missionaries spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I currently spend two mornings a week working in a church facility to provide food for families who are in need. It is called the Bishop’s Storehouse (I call it the grocery store without a cash register). I worked as a scout leader in my younger years for about twenty-five years. I also teach a class on Sundays and visit members of the church in their homes and offer assistance when needed.
