Hi I'm Art Hollingsworth

I have been an active member of the Mormon faith for over 55 years. I am and Insurance Broker

About Me

I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints all of my life. My wife and I have been married for 56 years and have 8 children and 33 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren. My wife has always been a stay at home mom while I worked as an insurance broker for most of our married life.

Why I am a Mormon

My membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has given me and my family peace and the strength to feel safe in a very difficult world. We strive to keep all of God's commandments we are not perfect but we always put forth our best effort. Knowing that we have a loving Father in Heaven has given a surety that there is a purpose to this life. I am great full for a loving Savior who has atoned for my sins. I love the Book of Mormon and know it is true. I am thankful for the Prophet Joseph Smith who sought an answer to his question of which church he should join. Through his prayer in the sacred grove we now have the true gospel upon the earth

How I live my faith

I have served our community as president of the chamber of commerce, planning commissioner, city councilman and mayor at the same time I was able to serve as Bishop of a local ward twice. I have also served in many other positions in the church recently as the Stake President. Currently I am semi-retired and serve in the local temple in our area. I am also the Ward Mission leader which gives me an opportunity to help the full time missionaries find and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those who would like to know more about our faith.
