Hi I'm Len

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Husband of 32 years, Father of two girls and one boy. I am Grandfather to three Granddaughters from my eldest daughter and her husbadn. I love to camp, backpack and mountain bike in the beautiful Northwest. I have lost 35 lbs in the past two years as I have tried to get healthier and extend my time on this beautiful earth and with my beautiful family. I am finding the golden years to be so fun and rewarding, as my wife and I move in to the stages of Grand parents together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have found that I can have happiness in my life by following our Saviors teachings. I have learned to take full advantage of our Saviors atonement for my sins and be cleansed as I renew the covenants made at baptism weekly by partaking of the sacrament. Being Mormon has taught me the sacredness of the family unit and has helped me raise my children in righteousness. With the assistance of Sunday School teachers, church leaders, etc., my wife and I have been able to help instill values my children will use to raise their children. Being Mormon also means being there to help our neighbors and friends in need. Service to each other is key to being a good citizen whether you belong to our church, or any other. By giving service to each other, we can follow Christ's example and 'feed my sheep'.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving as a home teacher. As a home teacher, I am able to check with the families I am assigned to each month, to let our Bishop know that his flock is taken care of. This not only helps the families I serve, it helps me grow as a person by thinking of others first. I also serve in the elder men's group leadership. We plan service projects for those in need, and look for ways to serve emotional, spiritual and physical needs of those in our congregation. I enjoy the example of the elderly men in our group that are retired and serve selflessly. They serve because it makes them feel good. I hope to follow their footsteps.
