Hi I'm Fred

I grew up in Illinois and converted to the Church from the Catholic church in 1998.

About Me

I am married and have three daughters. The middle and eldest are married and our youngest is serving a mission in South Korea. I received my under graduate and graduate degrees from a university in Illinois. I enjoy playing golf and love watching all other sports. I also enjoy movies and music of all types.

Why I am a Mormon

Mostly because I have received more from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints than from the Catholic church. The Book of Mormon has provided me with direction for my life and has brought me closer to the Lord. I have never regretted joining the Church as I am a much different and better person than I was before joining the Church. I took the Missionary Lessons twice (Phoenix, AZ and Houston, TX) before knowing in my heart the Church and the Book of Mormon were true. I was baptized in Texas in 1998.

How I live my faith

I work for the State of Utah and have served in 17 different church callings in 11 different Wards during the last 17 years. I have moved a lot over the last 20 years mostly due to my employment. My goal is to be more Christ like in all I do for my family, friends and those I encounter throughout my life. I also look forward to the day we can stay put in one geographic location.
