My wife and I have been married 45 years. I served in the US Navy and I am a Vietnam vet. I am politically very conservative, and have done much reading and studying on our us constitution, founding Fathers. the Proper role of government, and have been seriously involved the past 40 years in protecting our God given rights protected by our constitution.

Why I am a Mormon

I Love serving other people and being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I have gained a strong testimony that Joseph Smith was a Prophet of god, prepared to receive revelation and restore the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of our dispensation with all of the saving ordinances including the Priesthood .My callings I have had while being a member of the church have helped to strengthen my testimony, and i am excited to share my testimony with all my friends and neighbors. I know that we have a living prophet on earth today. I love reading the Book of Mormon and know that it contains the word of God and is a witness for Jesus Christ. my callings

How I live my faith

I love working with the youth. As a school bus driver, I fell in love with the youth, especially the kindergarten through 3rd grade as they boarded the bus, as they were excited to show and tell me about their exciting day in school or their upcoming events for the weekend. I try to get aquainted with my neighbors and set a good example a a Member of our Church. I once organized a huge community Christmas Program, including live nativity with animals, a Christmas concert with three choirs, and a display of hundreds of minature nativity displays. The entire community was invited.
