Hi I'm Phil

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I find a lot of happiness by living this religion.

About Me

I am a retired educator and have enjoyed many years working with children and their parents. After high school I joined the Navy and enjoyed four years of active duty. I had the privilege of serving on submarines while in the Navy. I attended BYU and received an Education Specialist degree and worked for many years as a Principal of an Elementary School. I am a member of the American Legion and enjoy providing military rites to veterans during their funerals.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I have had a witness that what is being taught in this church is true and if I live according to the things I know I will be blessed by the Lord and will be able to live with Him again. I have served a mission and taught the principles of the Gospel to others and have seen how the lives of those who join the church are changed and blessed by living the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know that God lives and that Jesus Christ is his literal son. That Christ came to this earth and taught the people how to live and what they needed to do to be able to return and live with Him and His Father again.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings (or duties) in the church but lately I am teaching a class during Sunday School called Gospel Principles. This is a class that helps non members, visitors, or those new to the Church to understand the principles that are taught and believed by the Church. We are there to answer questions and help others understand the principles and how to live them and how they will affect their lives. I have just recently been called to serve a mission for the church and to serve in the Washington Seattle Mission. My wife and I will move to Seattle area and help with the teaching and missionary work in that area. We are excited to be able to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others. I have a testimony that this is an important call and one that I want to fulfill to the best of my ability.
