Hi I'm Walter Belnap Kerr

hello my name is Walter Kerr. i grew up in salt lake city, Utah. and i am a inventor and scientist and i am a Mormon.

About Me

I believe in a life consisting of a combination of physical, mental, psychological, spiritual, and social activity. My primary interests are reading, doing research on the internet, serving others in my church, discussing scientific and religious truth as I see it, writing articles about my beliefs for publication, developing new products to be patented, working with wood, playing tennis, juggling, collecting, kite flying and walking. My internet research emphasizes the environment, politics, weather, geography, geology, world news, archeology. I have been involved in the design and operation of missiles, rockets, and space craft. I served in WWII and the Korean war. I believe in family life and having children. I have had three wonderful marriages. The first lasted 40 years before she died. My second lasted 14 years before she died. I presently have found another choice partner and we have been married six years. I have thus been acquainted with many family members and presently have six children, 25 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren. During my military and working career I lived in ten states which taught me a lot about this wonderful country. I enjoy reading and writing in English, French and Spanish. I have been studying Arabic for several years.

Why I am a Mormon

After a lifetime of study and experience, I have come to the conclusion that Jesus Christ is my Savior and my leader in serving and doing good. I have observed that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Mormons, is one of the greatest forces for good in the world.

How I live my faith

I have been involved in the teaching of all ages from youth to old age. i am currently a high priest and am serving as the public affairs director and as a missionary for my local area. I served a mission for my church in France, Belgium, and Switzerland. I like to study the scriptures as we know them. I try to read the scriptures every day. I have read and studied the Old and New testament. I have studied the Book of Mormon and have red it several times. I study the Doctrine and Covenants and enjoy searching for detail of the lives of those mentioned, and the principles involved. I have studied the Pearl of Great Price and enjoy the unique contribution this book makes to truth in the world. I believe in, teach others, and try to live the principles of chastity, truthfulness, prayerfulness, patience, tolerance, and all Christian and Mormon morality.
