The New York Times has a substantial article about Mitt Romney's days as head of the Latter Day Saints in Boston. He comes across as solid in his faith, walking the talk, helping those in need, and serving as a low-key liaison between the Mormon church and a sometimes suspicious surrounding community. He seems especially strong as a traditional Mormon husband and father - and the LDS is a church that makes something of a specialty of family life.
He also comes across as stiff and reserved, which matches his political persona. That seems to be the way he is, which is no real criticism.
This article has been helpful to me, because Romney has changed his political positions so often that I was wondering if he really believed in anything. I am glad to see that on the core issues of faith and family, he is consistent and reliable. His faith is not mine, but I honor his fidelity to it.
