Hi I'm B. Graul

I joined the Church as a teenager and served a church mission in Australia.

About Me

I am married with two daughters and a granddaughter. I am also returning to college to finish my degree. I like working with computers and family history. I am very creative and like the challenge of using what is at hand to make new things I need. I write poetry. My wife and I like to ride our bicycles on various local trails. We still go on dates together and have been married for almost 27 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I initially joined the church because I heard about the principle of Eternal Marriage, and knew it was true. There is no other church that teaches it. And it is a beautiful concept to know that you and your spouse and children can be with you for time and all eternity. I later came to know the Book of Mormon was true by personal spiritual experience. Once I knew that, things fell together because if the Book of Mormon is true, Joseph Smith was a Prophet of God and all that he did, including reorganizing the Lord's true church on the earth must also be true. There is much joy and comfort to be had in understanding and truly believing the principles taught by this church.

How I live my faith

I am a Stake Clerk and help to train unit clerks in our stake in their duties and responsibilities. I provide administrative support to the Stake Presidency as well as oversee Stake records and finances. I have held many other callings in the church, and these have helped give me gain experience in seeking the inspiration and Guidance of the Holy Ghost as I serve my brothers and sisters in the Gospel. There is great joy to be found in serving and helping others.

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

Baby fingernails. The renewal of Spring. The sunrise. The position of the Earth in relation to the Sun that makes it perfect for the Earth to Sustain life. The love and warmth I feel when I pray. His voice when he speaks to me. All things Show more Show less
