Hi I'm Larry

I married my wife in the Reno Temple, have 2 great kids and I'm happy to say that I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hello World! I'm the dad of 3 beautiful children and married to a great lady. I enjoy being with my family, playing the piano, working on computers and just laying around watching a movie. Recently I have been working on getting my degree online. This has proven difficult but not impossible. I think I have about 8 months left and I'm finally done.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life, but I came from a non-active family. I learned for myself what the LDS Church has to offer its members. As a young adult I was able to look at other faiths and found good in them. But the doctrine of the LDS faith teaches that the reason we are here is to create ever lasting families. I have come to know that my Savior, Jesus Christ, sacrificed himself to give us the opportunity to choose how we will live our life. He ransomed himself for the sins of the world. As we live the gospel and follow his teachings we have the option to enter into sacred covenants with our Heavenly Father. As we live to be worthy of these covenants our Heavenly Father will give us everything he has. The most important part to me is that I will get to live with my family forever. Even death cannot take them away from me forever.

How I live my faith

I try very hard to live my faith every day. Some days I do better then others, but I always try. Successes that I have include trying to be a positive example to my family and friends in every kind of situation. I serve in my local congregation as a technology specialist. It is my responsibility to assist the leaders and members in making the technology provided bless their lives and assist in their responsibilities. I know I have done a good job when people don't know what I really do because everything is working.
