I have invited Mike to be a part of our forum family. Here's a quick note from him.
I have read a number of the posts concerning our podcasts. One of the things that came up quite a bit was.....Who is this Mike Stroud*:) happy
Maybe a little bit of background would be helpful.
My wife Margie and I live in a little ranching community in the White Mountains of Arizona called Eagar. I have lived here for the past 24 years. I am a Utah native, born and raised in the Salt Lake/Sandy area. I served a mission to Bavaria Germany. Margie and I have served three missions together in Mongolia (2 years), Cebu Phillipines (1 1/2 yrs), and Morristown New Jersey (1 1/2 years, since I retired from the Church Education System in 2006. I was employed by CES for 27 years. I have a current temple recommend, and Margie and I have served as ordained temple workers in the Snowflake temple (two missions) I currently teach the HP priesthood lessons the 2nd and 3rd Sunday of Each month. We are the Stake Preparedness Specialists for the Eagar Stake, and I am the BSA advancement Chairman. I have 12 children, 32 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. I am 72 years old. If your friends want to see and know more about me (I can't imagine why) they can look on Facebook under Mike Stroud. I am the cowboy in the white hat standing in front of a ranch gate.
Thanks again for inviting me to participate in your site. It looks like you have a wonderful group of brothers and sisters who gather there.
Our best to you and your family,
