Hi I'm Rocky Nielsen

I am a son of a college professor who encouraged me to become a scholar. I grew up in Rexburg, Idaho. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am retired. I served in the armed forces for eight years as an Army officer. Then I worked in the aerospace industry at a rocket factory as an operations manager for twenty five years. In retirement I keep up a small farm for my horses.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the closeness I feel to God when I read the Book of Mormon as it testifies of Jesus Christ. I enjoy the peace and comfort that the holy scriptures bring to me. The church gives direction and meaning to my life.

How I live my faith

I love to help others as a member missionary in my neighborhood. I do a lot of family history research back into the Scandinavian countries. I also index Norwegian censuses so others can find their ancestors.
