Hi I'm Chuck DeWitt cdewitt@byu.net

Carried the Olympic Torch; love this Promised Land. Sought things virtuous, lovely and of good report: found wife. Happy Mormon.

About Me

My wife Sorena & I enjoyed Walt Disney World and a family gathering for 26. I enjoy our ATV and riding a bike once in a while. I love to go shooting on the west side of Utah Lake and now have a 4 wheel drive Rogue to go to the top of the mountain as well. My wife of over 40 years is still the joy of my life and a terrific grandma. UPDATE: We are missionaries for the Church again. We serve at the historic sites and Temple Visitors Center in St. George, Utah. To understand more about our mission email me at: cdewitt@byu.net

Why I am a Mormon

Good, better & best. There is nothing wrong with attending a good church as long as it doesn't prevent you from looking for a better church. The same for the best church. Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints invite everyone to bring all the good from their church and with sincerity as well as real intent find out for themselves if the LDS Church is the RESTORED CHURCH prophesied in Acts 3:19-21. It contains the Priesthood Authority as Christ gave to His Apostles. It has the true doctrine and ordinances and can add an enriching, spiritual depth to everyones' life. Your life can be good, better or the best. Find out from the source, not just friends or the general media. There is a promise in The Book of Mormon that the Holy Ghost will manifest the truth of it unto you if you are really seeking the truth and willing to live by the answer you get. My challenge to you is to go for the best. Check out mormon.org

How I live my faith

I was a young, somewhat irresponsible teenager when a gentleman I respected invited me to start reading from the Book of Mormon and later challenged me to memorize a very long scripture. I took him up on it. Three months later I completed that promise. Perhaps some of the thoughts stuck with me. I soon went to England for 2 years to tell people about our church. I have enjoyed helping scouts for many years to become well rounded men. I have made great memories on boat outings with family and church members. On a scout activity to clean up the beach in California we found an old abandoned boat and hauled it to the dump. Along the way we tested it and have fond memories of taking the "extended" trip to the dump. This seems to be the magic in my life: making sure there is joy in the journey. Some may not think serving as helpers in the family history center or working in a temple for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints could bring satisfaction. Soon my wife and I were asked to go serve almost every day in the Washingto D.C. Temple for a year. We also got to help in the visitors center. We had to have our finances planned to afford the experience but we had great support from our congregation and made the best memories ever. I am not sure what is around the next corner but I know I am a child of God and that He loves me. I like the saying: "Food uneaten is like Faith without works."
