Hi I'm Frank R. Howe

I am a retired educator, sports enthusiast, have a beautiful family and I am a Mormon.

About Me

My father was in the Air Force so I have been to almost every state in the United States. I graduated from BYU-Provo I have taught Special Education K-12 I have been a District Administrator I have worked for the State Department of Education I have taught university classes I have been a EMT for 33 years I am the father of 8 children

Why I am a Mormon

My father passed away when I was eleven years old. I had no formal religious education to this point. I had fears of never seeing my father again. The missionaries contacted our family when I was 14. After receiving the teachings of the gospel, I learned that I would see my father again and we could be an "eternal family". I was searching for answers to such questions as "What happens when you die?, What is my purpose here on earth? and Is there a God and if so, who is He?. Once I joined the church, all these questions were answered. I found out my relationship to God as the Father of my spirit. As I continued to study, pray and attend meetings, I feel peace and happiness.

How I live my faith

I have had the opportunity be called to leadership positions and find it very rewarding to serve others. I live in a small community and have been involved in city government. I have been a volunteer EMT which has given me the opportunity of meeting people from all walks of life. I try to be a good example to those around me and do daily scripture reading. I take my responsibilities in the church seriously and show this by completing my assignments.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Frank R. Howe
We do not worship Joseph Smith. We look at him as being a prophet of the Latter Days. We only worship God, the Eternal Father and his Son, Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
