Hi I'm Glen

Surgery fascinates me. Humanity and politics intrigue me. God, family and friends are what really matter. I’m a Mormon.

About Me

Much of my time, activities and worry center around our seven children. Helping them to succeed in this most challenging world is essential to me. A supportive, patient wife, who is my primary confidant and advisor, allows me to pursue my love of surgery and the study and practice of medicine. I am active in organized medicine and remain involved in trying to find solutions to the quality and cost challenges that face medicine today. Snow skiing in the winter and hiking in the mountains, canyons and deserts in the summer rejuvenate my spirit. Daily workouts increase my energy and relieves stress. Family history and genealogy research helps me to learn more about who I am. Gardening brings me greater appreciation for God's magnificent creations.

Why I am a Mormon

From childhood, I have been blessed to have been taught the Gospel of Jesus Christ. True followers of Christ have attracted my attention, and I have felt a great desire to follow their examples. I have learned that living the truths and obeying the commandments taught by Jesus Christ bring joy and peace into my life. His gospel helps me to make sense of life and brings hope in a world of confusion and turmoil. I have found the entirety of the gospel of Jesus Christ in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (also known as the Mormon Church). Through devotion, study and prayer, I have to come to know God and His Son Jesus Christ. I have enjoyed the guidance of the Holy Spirit, which helps me as I walk the path of life. I feel certain that the priesthood authority and essential ordinances necessary for a man to return into the presence of God are found only in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to do the things that God commands. Gospel and scripture study and prayer are my daily practice. I also demonstrate my devotion through fidelity and commitment to spouse and family. I try always to treat others with respect and kindness and look for opportunities to help and serve them. Honesty in my dealings with others is also essential. I look for opportunities to help in the community through programs such as Boy Scouts, community projects, and serving on boards and committees of organizations. I have devoted many hours in church service working with youth, teaching and instructing others about the gospel of Jesus Christ, and providing leadership in organizing and carrying out group activities and efforts.
