Hi I'm Volney

I grew up in Hollywood CA. I looked for a church like the church I read about in the Bible. I found it. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Father of 5; Grandfather to 19 (in June 2014 if all goes well). I love to play the guitar and sing, study the Civil War in America, and read historical novels. I worked as a commercial fisherman, served in the Air Force Reserves during the Vietnam war. I have enjoyed financial success and tasted bitter professional failure (haven't we all?). Pride brought me down and faith brought me back up.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. I got a strong answer from the Holy Ghost that it was true. I have never doubted that Joseph Smith translated the Book of Mormon through the power of God.

How I live my faith

I read the scriptures every day. I pray with my wife and by myself. I attend my church meetings and work in the temple as an ordinance worker. I don't swear and avoid television programs and movies that take me away from the spirit of God. I try to laugh and smile whenever possible and help my wife and friends. I home teach faithfully.
