Hi I'm Larry Mourdock

I was born in the middle 1900's in Ohio and have lived in the State of Georgia for over twenty years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I married my high school sweetheart and after 41+ years of marriage we have seven great kids and eleven outstanding grand children. We have been active as parents in sports, music, and church programs throughout our lives as Mom and Dad.

Why I am a Mormon

In 1978 two Missionaries knocked on our door and shared with my wife a basic message about the Gospel. About eight weeks later we were baptized and became members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Through challenges and circumstances following our Baptism, we were exposed to many people and leaders within the Church who like ourselves were seeking, finding, growing, and committing to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is through the example of literally thousands and the special friendships and testimonies of hundreds that we are here today. My hope is that in some way I can repay all the kindnesses and blessings given to my family by in someway assisting others along their path.

How I live my faith

We have been given the opportunity to serve in many areas of the Church as a volunteer by working with children, teen-agers, young single adults, and all aged groups in various capacities as a student, a teacher, an advisor, and a leader. We have served in our local congregation, on assignments to other Church locations, and even in helping on numerous occasions to different natural disaster areas such as hurricanes, floods, and tornado relief efforts. One of the factors I considered when joining the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was observing the people of the Church not only helping one another within the walls of the Church, but also being on hand and available to help those outside of the Church building when needed. I believe you can learn more about a person and his character when working with them in helping others than you can in almost any other way.
