Hi I'm Frank Palmer

I am a sixth generation member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Father of eight children. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Wisconsin and am the third of four sons. My family moved to Los Angeles area where I grew up. Since 1961 I have been making home movies with friends and family. These have evolved over the years and now I'm a "super-hero" to my grandchildren. It's a very fun hobby. My wife and I met at a church activity and were married in 1969. We moved to Lafayette Oregon after nine years with four children. We then raised those four children plus four more in Oregon. After thirty-five years there, I retired and down sized before moving to Moscow Idaho. I enjoy my children and grandchildren. I am enjoying traveling and serving in the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

In my youth, after looking for what life was all about, some friends and I visited different churches. My father was a member of the LDS church but had not been active for several years. I had been baptized when I was nine but didn't attend for long. One evening I had the feeling that I should learn about the church. I sought out the missionaries and institute program and was soon active. From there I have been growing in the faith thru attending and serving in many different callings. I know that Jesus is the Christ and through the atonement, I can be forgiven of the errors I have made. This helps keep me on the right path. --- That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. Here is but one of many activities where I was able to serve. I worked with the Cub Scouts through an LDS Church sponsored unit. It served both members and those of other faiths. We, the other leaders and I, started with less than ten boys and after a year had over twenty-five boys. Over the five years I worked with them, we followed the standards of scouting and the Church. After that I worked in Boy Scouts helping many boys achieve Eagle. Living my faith is service to others.
