Hi I'm Earl

I grew up in southern Illinois. I studied business management and married a girl from southern Illinois.

About Me

I love the outdoors, enjoyed working with our sons in scouting activities, and camped out a lot in my younger days. I went to college and earned a B.S. in business management degree. I am self employed, own and operate a farm, own and operate a heavy equipment [bulldozers, backhoe, etc.] service, and have moved oilwell drilling rig equipment. I am now semi-retired and have enjoyed the many positive experiences that have been a part of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Jesus Christ is the center of this church. In my younger years I visited several different Christian churches. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the most doctrinely correct. I feel the influence of the Spirit often times during church meetings and also during every day living decisions. The Church has been a great blessing to me over many years of membership.

How I live my faith

I serve in the local church in various leadership capacities as best I can. Seeing other people increase in righteous living brightens my life. I visit the homes of members and share things that I feel will help them live a happier life and be a benefit to their families.
