Hi I'm Wayne

Hi! I grew up in the western United States. I lived in Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Utah as a kid. Farming!

About Me

I am a retired accountant. My career was in the RV manufacturing business. Travel trailers and campers. We have lived in Oregon, Washington, Utah and California. I have been married to my wife Janie for over 42 years. We have had a wonderful life. We raised 6 children. 3 girls and 3 boys. The are all married and have given us 23 grandchildren. I enjoy reading, camping, fishing, hiking, nature, gardening, road bikes and old cars, playing music and being withmy family. I am a veteran having served in the US Army during the Vietnam war era. I served in France and Germany.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons but the main one is because of my savior, Jesus Christ and for what he has done for me through the atonement. Also because I love my family so much and in the temples families can be sealed together forever, not just until "death do us part". This is the church that is organized the same way today as it was when Jesus organized it when he was on the earth. It is not just a church, it is a way of life to try to become like the savior.

How I live my faith

My faith is a very important part of my life. I have always been an active church goer. I believe in following the Ten Commandments. Our church has a lay ministry and have always kept busy serving people and The Lord. I also find ways to serve in my community.
