About Me

I am married to a beautful woman from New York. I have 6 wonderful children. I enjoy the outdoors. I esspecially enjoy watching my children succeed in the activites they are involved in. I love to Golf.

Why I am a Mormon

Years ago, when I was a child, the missionaries taught me and my family about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. They helped my parents understand the teaching of the God and they believed what the missionaries taught. I too believed them, and wanted to be baptized. From that time until to today, I have never questioned my choice to join the Mormon church. I am very grateful that my family and I are a part of this church. It has been a great blessing to all of us. Today my wife and 6 children are all members of the church. My wife and I have served full time missionaries as single adults. As of today 3 of my 6 children have also choosen to serve full time missions. Maybe my younger children will serve as well. What a great blessing it has been for my children to serve in the Church. As a result of this service they have grown more mature.

How I live my faith

When I was growing up, I was influenced by my great Uncle Vernon. He believed with all his heart in the priciple of "doing to others as you would have others do to you." he lived his whole life like that even though he is not a Mormon. I try to do the same. I also remember when my family decided to join the Mormon church. Although I was young, I remember feeling, in my heart, that the church is true. From that time I have tried to live as God would like me too. As a Father and Husband,I am deeply grateful for the teaching of the Mormon church, becuase it helps me be a better Father and Husband.
