Hi I'm Cleve Mann Waite Jr.

I grew up in Las Vegas Nevada. I am married with four children. I have been studying business for the last 9 years.

About Me

I married my wife 10 years ago, 7 months after returning from my mission in Brazil. I enjoy woodworking and building fine furniture for my home. I have been in college for the past 12 years studying business. I have little debt to show for the time it has taken me. I have four children and a beautiful home that i have been able to maintain while going too school. I love to spend time with my family and enjoy the work I do.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church but became inactive. I knew i wanted something better but as a teenager was unable to find it. A great friend of mine invited me back to church and helped me to understand what i was really missing. It took some time but I found for myself what i wanted and i decided that the changes i needed to make were worth everything. I have looked back many times at the changes I made and realized that if i had not made the changes i would not have the great family i have or the blessings. I recall the day that my prayers were answered and i knew the church was true.I had been studying the scriptures and was pondering the lessons. I was praying to know if it was all true and what I needed to do. I recall that the answer came so strong to me I have been able to draw upon it many times for strength. I decided then that I was going to follow the gospel forever and never let it out of my life. I have been blessed greatly for making the choice and do not regret it. My life could be different if the choice was not made. I have tried the Lord in all things as He has asked, and He has blessed me to see the answer of each prayer.

How I live my faith

I have been blessed with a great wife who listens to me. I take the time to stop and talk to those in my community. I assist the scouts with the growth they have and work to make all friendship strong. I am able to serve others by watching over and being with friends and neighbors. I learn how i might be of service and then go out and help. I have been blessed with great knowledge and energy. I am able to serve others with ease and strength. It takes time to think of others and i use the time i have to serve. The time I have is also used to strengthen my family and be there for them. I try to teach them what i can with the time. They are a great source of strength for me and i draw courage and hope for them.

What is faith?

Cleve Mann Waite Jr.
Faith is knowing the sun will rise lighting each new day. Faith is knowing the Lord will hear your prayers each time you pray. It takes just a belief to have prayers answered. With a little belief all things are possible. Show more Show less
