Hi I'm Bruce

I'm a writer, a father, and a mayor. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've always been interested in community service. My wife and I have been merit badge counselors for 30 years. Fifteen years ago, when our community needed a new swimming pool, we joined a committee and helped raise awareness. Shortly after, I volunteered as the chairman of our local neighborhood. Not long after that, I was elected to the city council, and now I serve as our city's part-time mayor. I find great joy and fulfillment doing what I can to make our community a better place in which to live and work.

Why I am a Mormon

I am proud to be a sixth-generation Mormon. But while my heritage means a lot to me, it alone is not the reason I choose to belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I am a Mormon because of my unwavering conviction regarding the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and the validity of its teachings. There is no doubt about this book's divine source, and I have never gone wrong when I have applied its precepts in my life.

How I live my faith

I believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is all about helping us change our behavior. It's not enough to know more; we need to take action to improve. In our LDS ward, I teach the Sunday School class for adults. Each week we study scriptures and holy teachings, and each week we end the lesson with a "call to action," a challenge to improve one small aspect of our lives. By making these small but real changes each week, I believe we are drawing closer to our Savior.
