Hi I'm Bruce Boucher

I'm a dad, a grandpa, an adjunct professor and a Human Resources professional of 25 plus years AND I am happily a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Arizona and was most interested in team sports. While in Junior College on an athletic scholarship, I found the Church and was baptized. Less than a year later, I had a mission call to Madrid Spain. These were two of the three best decisions I have made in my life. The third was marrying my wife Becky in the Temple for time and eternity. I am now a father of 4 children and we have two gorgeous granddaughters. I have spent the last 25 years in Human Resources; helping business leaders see the value of people. In doing so, I have traveled to all but 2 states in the US and internationally. I have also enjoyed the opportunity of being an Adjunct Professor in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University. Just recently, my wife and I have been called to preside over the Puerto Rico San Juan Mission. We are delighted to go and feel blessed to be able to contribute to the missionary effort of the CHurch that brought so many blessings to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church after I spent the time to investigate not only its doctrine, but how the members of the Church lived and worshipped. After a time, I made it a "spiritual" quest and received a spiritual conformation that I should become a a member. This came to me in a very personal way and left no doubt what I needed to do. When one decides to "join" the Church, one decides to be baptized by immersion and live the principles of the Church. Since that time, I have been richly blessed and have avoided habits and problems. It has been the best choice for me.

How I live my faith

As I volunteer in the community or travel around the country, I am frequently asked - especially as people observe me about my religion. It is rare that I have to initiate the conversation - most people ask me. Becky and I try to follow the Savior and live as he would live. Following the Savior suggests we do for others, serve, be kind, and try to make things we are interested in or asked to do better than we found them. I have been very lucky that in our Church, I have spent a vast majority of time working with and serving the youth between 12 and 18, and our young adults. I love the enthusiasm and the challenge of trying to stay one step ahead of them. I also enjoy visiting 2 wonderful videos and a home bound couple each month. What a pleasure to catch them up on neighborhood news and make sure they have what they need!
