Hi I'm Randy

I'm a husband, a step-father, a lover of travel, an occasional writer, and a believer that all things are possible. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a recent convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am a husband and a step-father, and I love being both. One thing that I have learned in recent months is to always put my family and my relationship with our Heavenly Father first in my life. Since I have learned that precious lesson, things have fallen into place for me.

Why I am a Mormon

My conversion came very naturally. I married a member of the faith, and I was able to observe and attend services free from pressure from my wife or her family. Through my attendance, I started hearing and learning things that just made sense to me. They were the answers that I had been seeking. They were the missing pieces of the puzzle that is my relationship with our Heavenly Father. I invited the sister missionaries to our home to provide me with the discussions that led me to baptism. Extending that invitation was one of the most important, and best decisions of my life. My time in the church has not been long, but I have had amazing opportunities to serve, and to see the effect of the work of the Church and its members in our community.

How I live my faith

I have been blessed with a calling to serve as a Ward Missionary. This calling allows me to assist our full-time missionaries with the coordination of their work in the community, and also to visit the homes of those that are investigating the Church. To be invited into those homes is a tremendous privilege and honor for me. It is through such meetings that I am able to share my experience of the Gospel with others, and to determine if there are needs of service that can be met, either by myself, our full-time missionaries, or the Ward membership. I also have the opportunity to meet every month with a few families in the Ward, to whom I have been assigned as a home teacher. Being a home teacher serves a couple of very important purposes, first to share a message of the Gospel to those families, and also to act as a human connection for those that may be in need at any time. It is a solemn responsibility, but one that is very enjoyable, as it has established great new friendships for many.
