Hi I'm Charles Maxwell

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been married for 32 years. I am the father of three children--a daughter and two sons. I have 6 grandchildren. I am an attorney. My favorite past time is spending time with my family. I also enjoy reading and traveling.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church Of Jesus Christ of Later Day Saints because of certain life changing experiences, including a significant experience I had as a teenager when reading the Book of Mormon and praying to know if the Church was true. As a teenager I spent a considerable amount of time studying the Scriptures, including the Bible. I love the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon due to the impact it has had on my life. I subsequently served a mission for my Church in Norway. The experience has forever changed my life. To this day I still adore the Norwegian people, their Country and language.

How I live my faith

I try to live Christ's teachings. I try to be fair in what I do. I have had many opportunities to serve in my Church, including as a Bishop of a local congregation. During my service as a Bishop, my greatest joy came from working with the many youth in the congregation--averaging almost 170 teenagers during my tenure.
