Hi I'm Boyd Rowley

I have visited over 15 different countries. I am a former member of the Tabernacle Choir. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 7 children and grandfather of 18. I am enjoying my third career and at this point in my life, I am hoping to retire soon. My wife and I have been married for 38 years and find each day better than the last. We enjoy recreating outdoors and love to experience the beauties of the creation. I am now a graphic designer and work for a local printer preparing files for printing. I love music and have had the opportunity to be a member of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. I have visited many countries of the world because of music, many opportunities to meet people and discover many wonderful cultures.

Why I am a Mormon

My life has been so rich with blessings because of my association with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It gives me direction in my life. I receive so much comfort from my knowledge of why we are here on this earth, where we came from before this life, and where we will go when we die. I have seen the profound grief that people experience at the loss of a loved one if they don't have an understanding of God's plan for them. I have been blessed to be married to my wife for 38 years, we were married in a temple and believe that we will be together even after this life. That brings so much joy and purpose to my life. My children and their families are also experiencing this same joy because of their faith.

How I live my faith

I am involved as leader of a church group that is made up of university students. We provide opportunities for the students to worship and also provide opportunities for them to serve each other. I am greatly blessed because of my association with these great young people. They are so committed to their school work, their church service, and their families. Our particular group is all married students. Some have been married for a few years, some for just months. It is so fun to see them become "couples" and not just individuals.
