Hi I'm John C. Eberhardt

I was born in Utah. I am a Mormon. I believe in the Plan of Salvation It brings peace and happiness into my life.

About Me

I come from a family of six children and I am the oldest son. I was blessed with wonderful parents. I enjoy the outdoors and my favorite hobbies include; sailing, skiing, bike riding, golf, hiking, riding my motor cycle and travel. I graduated from college with a BS degree in business management and began my career in the transportation industry. I married my high school sweetheart and have been blessed with four sons. As a family we all enjoy similar activities but most of all we have all been active in our church and have a love for the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I spent my entire career in that industry and became the CEO of my own business and retired in 2012. I have been involved in many business associations and service organizations that has been very rewarding. I have been actively involved in my church and this has been my greatest source happiness and comfort in my life. I love my dear wife and my four sons. All my sons are all happily married and have added eleven wonderful grandchildren to our family. We love them all so very much. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of the truthfulness of Gospel of Jesus Christ, I know that Jesus Christ lives and directs his Church today through living prophets and apostles. I believe that Jesus is our Savior and that he atoned for our sins, and through his atoning sacrifice we can attain eternal life and live with him and with God the Father. I believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he restored the true Church of Jesus Christ upon the earth as well as restored all the keys of Priesthood authority.

How I live my faith

I have enjoyed my activity in my church. It has given me the opportunity to strengthen my understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and by living it's teachings has brought much joy and happiness into my life. I have served in many capacities in the church in leadership positions. I have served with the youth as a Boy Scout leader, in young men & women organizations and with the young single adults. I have taught youth and adult Sunday school classes. I have been and home teacher most of my life and truly enjoy visiting with families and sharing a spiritual message and a prayer with them. I strive to spend time every day reading and studying the scriptures this along with daily prayer help me to stay focused in the Gospel.
