Hi I'm Wayne

Hi, I'm quiet but friendly, deep thinker but simple at heart - teacher, computer programmer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served in the USAF as a Physiological TrainingInstructor. My degrees include a B.S. in Elementary Education, a B.S. in Computer Science, and a B.A. in Children's Theater. Currently, my job has me writing computer programs and SQL queries for KY Medicaid. I've also been a Kindergarten teacher, 1st grade teacher, and second grade teacher. My acting career has allowed me to work in several T.V. and movie productions - no speaking parts, yet. My favorite computer language is perl. I like scriptures, tennis, movies, and chess. Also, I like reading children's books, being outdoors walking trails or riding a bike, history, science, rainbows, and bubbles. I'm thoughtful, quiet, funny, logical, playful, and loving. I'm a teacher, reader, actor, computer programmer, chess player, and a child of God. And I'm a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me in the Presbyterian faith. I cherish the spiritual roots they dug for me and the Christian truths I learned in that church. While in the Air Force, I learned about Joseph Smith, The Book of Mormon, and the complete gospel of Jesus Christ. The missionaries urged me to read, study, and pray to God - and I took their challenge seriously. In answer to my prayers, God filled me with a testimony that there is only one church that fully, completely, truly shows the way back to Heavenly Father. If there is only one straight and narrow way, then Christ would point out that true path so all may walk it in faith. I have a testimony that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is that church and I honor my parents by building upon the foundation they laid for me.

How I live my faith

I've served as a missionary, a Primary teacher, an assistant to the assistant clerk, ward mission leader, home teacher, and other positions. Day by day, I try to live by what I've been taught. When I do, I feel myself growing closer to my God. When I stumble or fall, I reach out for the outstretched hand of Christ, that is always there, offering to help me change my ways.
