Hi I'm George

I have looked into many different religions and now I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am 68 years old and during my lifetime I have done many things. Movie theatre usher to short order cook to waiter to trophy designer and builder, copy and print specialist. I have been a caregiver, and I was in the United States Navy. I am retired but on Saturdays I am a shoe salesman. I enjoy listening to public radio, classical music, and especially the morning edition news and all things considered. I enjoy meeting new people. I also enjoy reading good literature (biographies, true stories, etc.), and I am a avid movie watcher. "Lifted", "Forever Strong",

Why I am a Mormon

Why I'm a Mormon is because I know the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith was a prophet, and our first presidency and apostles are inspired by God. I met my missionaries (I call them MY missionaries) on the streets of my hometown. They were riding their bicycles towards me and I knew by their dress and bicycles from 2 blocks away that they were Mormon missionaries. I said silently, "Lord, please don't let them stop". Obviously, He had different plans for me. The missionaries were very patient with me and guided me through the lessons. They asked me many questions and they thought I may have trouble with Heavenly Father giving the Book of Mormon to such a young man. I realized that Heavenly Father uses everyone He can for his purposes regardless of age. He helps them achieve the goals that He wants them to achieve. I have been baptized, confirmed, and I hold the Melchizedek priesthood in the office of an Elder. I have since met and have been helped along the way by several different missionaries, all of whom I have immense respect for. They are a true blessing and they know and share their knowledge of not only the Book of Mormon but our religion as a whole. I am an extraordinary sinner who has an extraordinary Heavenly Father who is not only loving but also forgiving. The first time I sat down in the meetinghouse on a Sunday morning, I got the most comfortable feeling I have ever experienced. I received the impression that this is where I should be.

How I live my faith

I have been called to assist in keeping the church building and grounds in proper condition. I work with the youth in the ward and on Wednesday nights, I work with the Boy Scouts. I have tried to take one word out of my vocabulary when it comes to serving the church, and that word is "No". I enjoy serving the Lord, serving in the meetinghouse, and serving my ward.
