Hi I'm Bruce

I was born in Portland Maine. I joined the church when I was 17. I was baptized in the Worcester Mass. Branch. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am retired from a career as a landscape architect. I am a father of two girls and I have travel through the country and world during my life. I now spend my days by the sea with my wife and enjoy the time to write helping other who need service.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with a severe stutter and had few friends as a youth and found that books were my friends then. I had read most of the classics and many other works of literature by the time I was a young teenager. My first boy scout merit badge was in reading. In high school I met a young Mormon girl who introduced me to the church. I realized that Joseph Smith as a young boy could not have written such a work and that knowledge became the foundation of my belief in the restoration of the Gospel.

How I live my faith

I have had many callings over the 50 years that I have been a member of the church in administration and teaching. I have enjoyed working with our youth as a Boy scout leader on several occasion. I am active in our community with volunteer and service work. Our branch is small here in Maine but full of active and sincere members who have become family to my wife and I
