Hi I'm Chad Warner

I am an Air Force Academy Class of 2007 graduate. I fly C-130's and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town called Cokeville, Wyoming. My parents divorced when I was ten years old and both of them later remarried. I was a wrestler in high school and on the Sabre Drill Team at the Air Force Academy. I love writing poems, short stories and am currently working on my first novel and finishing up a memoir. I have a Bachelors in Biology, a Minor in Japanese and a Master's in Creative Writing. I am a C-130 pilot in the United States Air Force. I love being a part of a great team and proud to serve our country.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in family above all else. Family is central to God's plan for us to be happy. From the moment I held my boys for the first time, I knew that life without my wife or them would be Hell enough. I have been to many weddings as a member of the Sabre Drill Team to hold arches. In each and every one I heard the divorce statement at the very end. It states "till death do you part" "or as long as ye both shall live." What about after death? We don't just fade away, death is not the end of our lives. It is the end of THIS life but not OUR lives. I want to be married to my wife for the eternities, and that is what the restored gospel of Jesus Christ tells us. We can be eternal families. We can live together forever. Babies do not need baptism and will not go to hell if they don't get one. Babies are not capable of sinning and are innocent. The age of accountability is 8. This means they have learned from their parents and experiences what is right and wrong and now they are ready to continue learning on their own and know what baptism will mean for them. Families are strength. Why do you think that so many are being destroyed? Why is it that the family is the one thing under attack these days? Kids are feared, marriage is feared, people want the fun that comes with being together without the responsibilities. In a world where so much is in Chaos, I find comfort in my faith and my family.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Nursery worker. What is that? I take care of the children ages 18mo to 3 years. We play games, have snacks, sing songs and learn about the love that Jesus Christ has for all of us, especially the little children. I have been a scout leader and I have been a missionary for two years in the country of Japan. I love working with people. Everyone has their unique ideas and ways to live life. When I am not flying, I love to go out with the family to aquariums, beaches, zoos and camping. Climbing Mt. Fuji was one of the highlights of my tour in Japan. When I fly with my crew, I always let them know that they have a permanent Designated Driver installed. I recognize that not everyone shares my beliefs and I know that some like to go out for drinks after the day is over. I like to go out with them and ensure that they make it home safely and ready to fly again the next day. Its my way of being a good crew member and Christian.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Chad Warner
Joseph Smith was a prophet and a great man. Yet, he was a man. He is not our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ or our Heavenly Father. We believe that God has called prophets once again, like Moses, Abraham and many others. He speaks to them, reveals his word to them and through them guide us. Joseph Smith was the first prophet called in these Latter Days. He translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God and brought about the restoration of his Gospel in these days. After his death, another prophet was chosen and same after that. While we give heed to the prophets words, we worship our Father in Heaven and his son, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
