Hi I'm Len

I'm a veteran of the United States Air Force and professional copywriter.

About Me

I'm a professional copywriter and veteran of the United States Air Force. My hobbies include reading, writing, computer games, music, and watching movies/TV with my family. We joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in August 2013.

Why I am a Mormon

All my life, I've sought the truth of God's plan for mankind. I was raised in the Methodist church, and served as a trustee after returning from the USAF. However, I always felt there was something missing... that parts of God's plan had been lost or gotten mixed up over the years. There were so many times when a question would be asked, and the answer wouldn't be known. Or times when doctrine and tradition seemed to contradict themselves or the scriptures. However, all that changed when my family and I found The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. From our first lesson with the missionaries, everything just "clicked." Everything in the Church is focused on love, compassion, and the family. And that's the way it should be.

How I live my faith

I currently serve as Sunday School President in my local branch and as home teacher for two families. And I'm teaching a class helping others learn how to become better teachers.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is our loving Heavenly Father, who wants us to learn and grow during our mortal lives so that we may return and live with Him (and our family) for eternity. As we live our lives, we are tested and face many trials and tribulations. However, Heavenly Father can and does turn any circumstance to good -- we just have to have the faith to see it. Just as we become parents and want our children to succeed and live good, happy lives, Heavenly Father wants us to succeed and live good, happy lives. He wants to hear from us (through prayer) just as we want our children to call us. And just as we forgive our children, He forgives us when we fall short of expectations or our potential.
