Hi I'm Chad

I'm a father, a researcher and health policy evaluator, an amateur photographer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of four. I am a research analyst and health policy evaluator. I enjoy activities with my family such as camping, fishing, trips to the grandparents, weekly dates with my wife, and quiet times when the kids just want to be held.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who were already members of the LDS Church. However, they never forced me to remain with the Church. They gently taught and persuaded me. My testimony started at a very young age with knowing that Jesus Christ is our Savior. As I grew, I learned to recognize that other aspects and teachings of the Church were also true. As a teenager, I read the Book of Mormon and learned through prayer and by the power of the Holy Ghost that it is also true. Today, I cannot deny the truth I have come to discover and I continue to learn more every day. The principles taught by the Church have become part of who I am.

How I live my faith

I am actively involved in helping introduce the gospel of Jesus Christ to people who live around the area.

What is being a Mormon like?

Odd as it may sound, it is liberating. Being free from vices, able to live my life without being tethered to selfish addictions is a blessing. I have heard others say, "Isn't being Mormon so restricting?" What restrictions? Perhaps one of the most important pieces of wisdom I have learned as a member of the Church is my ability to choose and to not have others (or any addiction) choose for me. Show more Show less
