About Me

Born in Spanish Fork Utah. Graduated from Spanish Fork High in 1976. Served a mission to Louisiana Baton Rouge Mission. I served mostly in Mississippi but loved my two years in the field. Went to Stevens Henager Business College and BYU. Joined an accounting firm and then joined the US Air Force. Lived in Texas, Washington, Italy, Colorado, Germany, England, then back to Italy. The Nevada, and California. I have served in the following conflicts: Libya, Desert Storm, Operation Enduring Freedom, Served in United Arab Emerites, Qatar, Kuwait, and Afghanistan. I was also in Operation Iraqi Freedom where I was wounded. After almost 25 years of Service, I was medically retired. I could no longer walk, talk or eat. After years of Physical and Occupational Therapy, I finally was able to get up and walk and dance at my daughters wedding. With my sweethearts help as my caregiver, I can now talk, eat on my own and walk. We retired to live in Mapleton, Utah to be close to family. Every day is a new adventure and another incredible day that my Father in Heaven has granted me to live. I love life and all that I've been blessed to have. I travel around telling my story. It's a rich faith promoting experience.

Why I am a Mormon

I've always known that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in true. I grew up learning how to pray at my mother's side. She always knelt in prayer next to us. I studied years of Seminary and Institute and BYU and loved the gospel. My mission strengthen my faith in the gospel. Serving in many callings through out my life has given me increase faith in the gospel. The experiences of war have been faith promoting. My service to my country has also been a faith promoter. From the side of my mother in Prayer, to the family circle I have today. I've always known the gospel to be true

How I live my faith

While serving as a Branch President in Italy, I realized that I had to have incredible faith to lead the branch through a terrible war experience. Many member's lives were threaten and homes where rocked and shaken by the experience. I saw incredible faith and courage in those days. We even had to take down the sign of the Church in English for fear of having the church destroyed. Even the Italian members had incredible faith that everything would turn out Okay. After returning back to the states, I remembered serving as a High Councilman in our Stake in California and the faith of the Brethren when I went of to war. The Stake Presidency gave me an incredible blessing. Even though I returned wounded and unable to walk, I was alive. The faith of those brethren in that council was incredible. The stories of faith building during my time in war is unshakeable. Every day I live by faith. The Lord has built me up in these, the latter-days. To bear testimony of his redeeming love. I'm in awe at his incredible love for me.
