Hi I'm Stan

I am an entrepreneur, a business operations specialist and I love the outdoors. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a family man. My wife is my very best friend in the world and there is nobody I would rather spend time with. We have raised five wonderful children that bring us great joy as well as our lovely grandchildren. I also have several hobbies, I love to hike, experiment in the kitchen, am an avid cyclist (both mountain and road), and I enjoy shooting sports. These hobbies are shared with my wife and children. We have enjoyed countless hours of fun with family and friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I have found many people who struggle with religion because they feel like there are so many questions and so few answers. They understand the concept of truth but fail to realize that truth actually can exist in the realm of religion. I am a Mormon for many reasons, but one of them is that I have come to realize that there are true and real answers to so many religious questions. The best part is that any person can come to realize these same truths for themselves the same way that I have:- through the Holy Ghost. A living prophet helps us to understand God's direction for us in the latter days as further guidance to what was revealed anciently. I have found a deep joy in life from knowing and living by these principles. I know that God lives and that Jesus Christ in my Savior and Redeemer.

How I live my faith

I believe our faith is merely an extension of who we are personally. We can't be one thing when we are around people and something different when we are alone. Our faith should define us. I heard once that "An opinion is something you hold. Conviction is something that holds you." I believe my ability to live by what I believe is the true measure of who I am. It is my ongoing quest in life to better align my life with what I know to be true. I enjoy serving others in many different aspects. My service in the church has helped me to love and grow close to so many people. I have developed so many wonderful friendships and associates. The more actively I participate and serve others, the closer I come to the Lord.
