We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hi I'm Woody

I am a former infantryman. Now I work with computers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a computer geek. My interests include science fiction and Military History. I work with the clients of my company to install, configure and administer networks, e-mail and archiving systems. I am single. I have a Masters Degree and am working on my Doctorate. I served in the military for about 11 and 1/2 years before changing to my current career computers.

Why I am a Mormon

I actually grew up in upstate New York, near where the church began. I joined the curch when I was in the Republic of Panama. Go figure. The young lady I was dating introduced me to the missionaries. Between the missionaries and the book of Mormon, the church answered questions I had since I was a youth. My conversion came when I took the Moroni Challenge Moroni 104. Since then there have been doubts and questions, but the fact I got a response to my question and continue to receive personal revelation is the rock on which I can base my faith or ustard seed. Simply put, I am simply a better person by being a member and trying to be a good member.

How I live my faith

I am a home teacher. I hold a current temple recommend. While I do enjoy Sunday School and like the members of the ward, living my faith is a daily challenge. I work with non-members. I do not smoke or drink. Others know I attend church and the reason I do not drink. By living my faith, others view me as an example of other members and the church in general. I have received many blessings in my life both spiritually and professionally. I attribute these blessings to our Heavenly Father.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Woody
Do members of other christian faiths worship Moses? Do other christians worship the apostles? No. However, christians Mormons included revere the original 12 apostles and Moses. Like those individuals, we revere the various spiritual leaders in the old and new testaments. We also revere Joseph Smith and our current spiritual leaders and look to them for guidance.
