Hi I'm Layne

I grew up in Texas, Utah and California, and now hang my hat in Colorado. My adopted second homeland is Germany, where I served.

About Me

I'm just an Ordinary Average Guy (kinda like Joe Walsh). I cycle road bikes far and fast (at least for a relatively old guy. I do other stuff too.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Mormon, but even now wouldn't have it any other way. I've learned how to find out for myself who I am, where I came from, why I'm here and what comes next. Without that basic knowledge, what basis do we have for our decisions in life?

How I live my faith

I'm a little "non-social" by nature, but my faith helps me change that. It gives me opportunities to get out and help other people, which I probably wouldn't ever do if left to myself. Nothing is as permanent and joyful as our families and friends.
