Hi I'm Merlin

Born in the covenant (BIC), lived in SLC all my life. Married, children BIC. Retired.

About Me

Husband and father, grandfather, high priest, missionary to N. New Zealand. I value my own time, which I have an abundance of at this point in my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I was born into the LDS faith and was raised consistently by devout parents. I have followed suit with my own family, desiring our children to be as happy as I was growing up, and wanting to pass that on to their own children. The "Mormon lifestyle" is very good if practiced devoutly. There is plenty of room for individuality as long as one desires to do right.

How I live my faith

One day (hour) at a time. "Never lie to yourself" is a core tenet of my personal faith. God knows when you are lying. So nothing could be more counter to inner peace and knowing yourself. We grow in knowledge about Existence through approaching everything honestly.
