Hi I'm Van

I am a father of six children, I grew up in Utah. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have had a number of jobs I refueled jetliners while going to college, Graduated with a BS degree in Geography and Minor in Botany. For Ten years I worked as a Cartographer making digital maps, I'm currently an Investigator for a state agency and love my job. My kids are always after me not to buy any more house plants (I say you can never have enough), I also love my garden and sharing my extra produce with the neighbors, they are always asking me how I keep my garden clear of weeds, just good old elbow grease and get the weeds while they are small. I love to go camping and spending time with loved ones in the outofdoors fishing and hiking.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had trials in my life that I never thought I would have, looking back I have realized that living the gospel and attending church services on Sundays has blessed my life so much. I would be a very different person today if I had not kept active in the gospel and attending my church meetings.

How I live my faith

I am currently a ward missionary, my daughter said its because I keep praying that someday my dream of serving another full time mission and sharing the restored gospel with others, or to help them relight the gospel in their lives, that the Lord has granted me my prayers early. The gospel has helped me through some very tough times in my life, knowing that families are an eternal unit, has blessed me and my life when my dear wife passed away.
