Hi I'm Max

I'm a Mormon. I was born in Eureka, Utah and was raised in Ogden, Utah. I am a convert. I have been a member for 22 years.

About Me

I am retired and live with my wife. I love to golf and fish and watch our little 1 year old granddaughter grow. Although I don't play golf as well as I used to, I still play. I love hold my little granddaughter and feel her sweet spirt knowing that she is very close to Heaven and our heavenly Father and his kingdom.

Why I am a Mormon

My Mother was Catholic and my Father was born a Morman. They never went to church so consequently I was never babtised. When I was in my 20's I had several recurring dreams that Jesus was looking at me through my bed room window. It frightened me somewhat at the time, but I never did anything about it. But when I was in my middle 40's those images of Jesus kept coming back to me. I felt that I needed to do something about not being babtised. I was considering becoming Catholic because my Mother was so adamant about the Mormans. About that time my wife and I were having problems which ended in divorce. I met thIs lady who was a member of the LDS Church. We dated for awhile and she convinced me to talk to her Bishop. The Bishop and I decided to have the missionaries come and teach me. The Bishop warned me that the adversary would do all in his power to keep me from joining the church. It took a while to convince me that's what I wanted to do. I wanted to be sure and the adversary didn't make it any easier, it took 8 sets of Missionary's to accomplish the job. I was babtised the same days as my 8 year old grandson (who is now a doctor in residency) and I was baptized by my then future wife's son.

How I live my faith

On August 5, 2012 I will be a member 23 years. I have held several different assignments and am currently serving on the High Counci. My wife and I are taking a Institute class on Tuesday nights. Our instructor is so amazing in his know ledge of the scriptures and his testimony is so powerful it just increases my knowledge and MY testimony.
