Why I am a Mormon

My family roots go back to Europe and England, from the very early days of the church. I grew up in the church and really made my own conversion at 18 years old while in the military. That was the first time I really read the Book of Mormon in earnest and prayed with all my heart, great was the feeling that fell upon me by the Holy Ghost and I have kept that testimony alive all my life. Over the years my knowledge of the gospel has grown and so has my testimony, I know from spiritual experiences, miracles of my own, and others that the gospel works just as it says in the scriptures. I feel the presence of the Holy Ghost much of the time and feel promptings most every day in all aspects of my life from little reminders to strong manifestations. The Gospel is true, it just is, I know from experiences in my life, tangible evidences, and spiritual manifestations. The only thing that holds me back is the weakness of the flesh but that is where repentance comes in to keep you moving forward in life of my goal of eternal life.

How I live my faith

I am a High Priest and love to go to the temple often. I have been active in Family History taking names to the temple. At the present I am the Sunday School President and have held Priesthood leadership positions in the quorums. I am serving on 2 Power Boards in 2 community's, have been on a city council for 4 years, and served for a short period on a voluntary fire department.
