Hi I'm John

I grew up in Idaho in a small farming community. My Dad was a member all his life and my mom was a convert.

About Me

I am retired and enjoy spending time with my wife in visiting our children and grandchildren. We raised 4 sons and now have a dozen grandchildren. I try to exercise frequently to keep active and it just makes me feel better when I do. I spent a career doing systems work for a major company and am now amazed at the changes just since I retired.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been an active member of the LDS church all my life. I have remained active because of personal experiences with the spirit testifying to me of its truthfulness. I have gained the strength to face lifes challanges and gained an increased understanding of who I am and my purpose here. I have seen the effect of keeping the commandments as a remedy for the problems of life. I know my Heavenly Father loves me, that Joseph Smith is a prophet and the Book of Mormon is scripture along with the Bible.

How I live my faith

I attend church regularly and visit several members of our ward each month. I write letters to others who do not always want visits. I find everyone is struggling with something and it is very hard for young couples to get started with life. I encourage them to trust the Lord and keep the commandments.
