Hi I'm Jerry

I grew up in the Salt Lake valley. I am approaching retirement. I'm a Mormon and have been my whole life!

About Me

My parents were both members of the church but were inactive. My mom desired to return to activity, but not so for my dad. He had aquired bad habits while serving in the military. After some proding and challenges from a bishop, mom and dad attended a temple preparation class. We were sealed in the temple when I was 13 years old. I had experience two different home lives. A home where the gospel is practiced made all the difference. I served a mission in France and Belgium. I served in the USAF, sharing the gospel with several. I received a degree computer science. We have five children and preparing to retire and to serve as a senior missionary couple.

Why I am a Mormon

I have seen the difference that the gospel makes in a home life from experience. Further, I have learned for my self that Joseph Smith was modern day prophet of our Heavenly Father. Joseph was chosen to translate from gold plates the Book of Mormon, a volume of scripture from the ancient inhabitants of the Americas, that testifies of Jesus Christ. Under the heavenly direction, Joseph was the instrument God used to restore the fullness of the gosple to the world.

How I live my faith

I have served in many different positions in the church as a scoutmaster, instructor for the youth and adults and in leadership positions.
