Hi I'm Heath

I grew up in Blackfoot. I work for a non profit organization. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am very loyal. My wife is my best friend. My children are young and can be very demanding. It's a good thing they are cute. My family is my number one priority. I enjoy fishing and spending time in the outdoors. I am not a handy man. When I prepare to fix things in the house, my wife becomes very nervous. It can be funny to see. I am viewed by others as kind and even quiet.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents didn't grow up in the church. They became converted to the gospel after they were married. My mom had a huge influence on my conversion. She taught us to read our scriptures and to say our prayers on a daily basis. I wasn't perfect at it, but I did my best. Our family had their own challenges growing up, so the only thing that seemed really stable sometimes was the gospel. When I was about 15, my brother was preparing to serve an LDS mission. I knew I needed to know for sure if the Church was true, if I was going to serve a mission. I read the Book of Mormon and I prayed for guidance and to know if the gospel was true. I didn't receive an answer for quite some time. Then, while I was sitting in my English class at school, I received the answer to my prayer. It was this feeling of pure joy. I probably looked funny to my class mates because I was instantly happy and excited in the middle of English class. I knew then and from that day forward that this gospel is true.

How I live my faith

I realize that my strengths are found by the way I lead my life. It is my example not my words that others seem to notice. I assist members of the church by moving their church records into and out of the ward. I take meeting notes. I do my best to ensure the records are always accurate. I also work with the Church welfare program. I educate families and members about the services the Church can offer to those in need. I help others to see their full potential, when they cannot. I always try to do my best and to live my life without regret.
