Hi I'm Niels Monrad Pedersen

I am a Mormon because my faith gives purpose and meaning to my life

About Me

Married, 11 children all of which are adults and most of whom are married. 35 grandchildren all of which we love and adore. I am retired. My hobbies include gardening, sports, (pickle ball), bicycling, skiing, (cross country) mostly, and walking in nature. I also play the accordion and dabble in the German language. My profession was accounting, Chief fiscal officer during my last years working. I was reared as a Lutheran, graduated from a Catholic school ( Georgetown University) , and joined the LDS faith as an adult.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the LDS faith and have a strong witness of Jesus Christ as the Redeemer and Savior of the world. I seek to emulate His teaching in my life. I joined the church as a young man at the age of 24. The example of the young people of the church had a great influence on my life at that time, and was a contributing factor in my conversion to the LDS faith.

How I live my faith

I have been active in the Church my whole life since my conversion. I attend church every Sunday, and sing in the choir. I have held offices in the church in very capacities.
