Hi I'm Pat

I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in 2001

About Me

I am a 70 year old husband ,father, and Grandfather. I retired from 30 years with Teledyne Systems Company,as anElectronics Engineer Now I garden and read a lot. In 1991 I almost died from a stroke and an aneurism on the right side of my brain.This left me unable to use the left side of my body,along with a diminished mental capacity.Much has now been restored

Why I am a Mormon

Since 1948 I sought to find who God was and my relationship to Him I joined every other Church looking for answers for my questions, but , only the Mormons had satisfactory answers.

How I live my faith

I seek to be a good example by volunteering in the community, helping others,being a mild peaceful and kind neighbor I also speak often of my Sunday activities.

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Pat
I get a deeper understanding of the meanings of scriptures and Doctrine,I also recieve answers to my questions,and I receive daily guidance in my personal life. I was a Pentacostal Christian for almost 10 years. The lack of power from the Holy Ghost pushed me to search elsewhere. I have now found that power , in the L D S Church.. Show more Show less
