Hi I'm John

My father was in the military so I lived all over America until I was 12 years old and we moved to Alabama where I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a retired telephone man after 46 years working in different areas within the company. I really enjoyed the outside work which I preformed most of my years, I worked in Alabama the entire time . I now spend my time visiting my five children and 14 grandchildren with my wife of 45 years. We also find plenty of time to work in our church and travel for pleasure. In our early years we did a lot of time on vacation camping and that has rubbed off on several of our children. We usually spend the Thanksgiving Holiday in the woods with the whole family and invited friends. Neither I nor my wife have any collage education but it was a priority for us when we had children so our five children all went to collage. It was hard at times since my wife was a stay at home mother but it was worth it and they seem to have benefited from their experience.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because no matter how I tried to fight it what I heard was true, I wanted a way out because I knew that being a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints would change my life for good both in how I lived my life and why I lived the way I would. My wife and I joined the Church while I was serving in the US Army stationed in Germany. We lived off base and enjoyed our time with friends going to restaurants and bars

How I live my faith

We have been Mormons for 44 years and enjoy the challenges of working with and helping other people. We are currently leaving on a full time mission to Nevada, we have looked forward to this opportunity for years and have been blessed with the means to do so. Since I'v worked outside all my life I really enjoy helping with the many service projects that seem to be apart of church life. It seems its so much easier to fix a broken door,lock or window than to fix a troubled soul or mind.
