Hi I'm Layne

I grew up in Idaho and the Midwest of USA. I am a retired dentist. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I attended BYU, University of Illinois Dental School and the University of Washington. I am a retired dentist and enjoy fly fishing for recreation. My wife and I have raised 5 children and have 17 grand children. We enjoy traveling and in Oct. of 2016 we will serve a mission in South Africa for 18 months.

Why I am a Mormon

I believe and in fact know that God and Jesus Christ are live beings who know and care about us individually. I know that Joseph Smith is and was a prophet of God call to restore the perfect church of Jesus Christ to the earth with priesthood authority to act in His name in preforming ordinances of salvation such as baptism. I know that Christ is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. All man kind will be resurrected and live for eternity.

How I live my faith

We are active in the LDS faith. We attend church meetings on a weekly basis. We feel that it is important to keep the Sabbath Day holly by absainting from business, recreational and other activities that do not help us build a better relationship to God and Christ.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

The beauty and organization of Nature. It is too perfect to have happened from a big Bang or any other random act. A human comes from two cells that are able to contain the genetic code that makes them functioning unique beings. Look at a baby and know there is a God. The order of the universe speaks loudly of great laws that keep order through out all time and eternity. The evidences are everywhere if one will pause and ask God to show you his handiwork.
