Hi I'm Glen

I am a husband, father, 4th grade teacher, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a wonderful wife. I am a father to five growing children, who teach me many things and bring joy and happiness to my life. One of my favorite things to do is to be with my family. We enjoy camping, riding horses and four-wheelers, playing games and working together. One of my hobbies is working outside with animals and seeing what a beautiful world God has created for us to enjoy. I graduated from college with a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and have taught school for 18 years. I love teaching school, especially math! I enjoy seeing students learn and understand new concepts. It is a wonderful profession and I learn something new each day.

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to follow the example of our Savior Jesus Christ because it brings peace, joy, and happiness to my life. His example leads me to make righteous choices. Through Him we can return to live with our Father in Heaven if we follow His example. I have prayed for His guideance and direction in my life. I have asked my Father in Heaven if this church is true, He has answered my prayers with a warm and peaceful feeling that it is true. This feeling is as real as seeing blossoms on a tree or brooks running down a mountainside. My feelings are strong and sure feelings of the truthfullness of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This is His church. It is lead by a prophet and apostles as it was in the days of old. Our Father in Heaven hears and answers prayers. He has answered mine throughout my life. I look forward to the day when the Savior will come again and show Himself to the world.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith by attending church meetings weekly. This renews my spirit and gives me strength. I feel closer to the Savior after partaking of the sacrament and renewing my covenants with Him. I try to follow His example by helping those in need, treating others kindly, and striving to follow His commandments. Reading the Bible and the Book of Mormon has helped me to know of Christ's teachings and our Heavenly Father's Plan for us. I serve in my church by teaching an adult class about the principles taught in the scriptures. I learn with the rest of them about the teachings of our Savior. This brings me great joy and comfort in my life.
