Hi I'm Trent

I grew up in Idaho. I now live in Washington state. I'm a Physician Assistant and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Physician Assistant I am married and we have a two year old boy with another on the way. I am a sports nut! I love playing all types of sports and love watching them too. I competed in many sports tournaments when I was younger, I'm very competitive. I like to read books and watch movies based on true stories because they inspire me. I love learning new things and sharing them with others. Finally, my friends will tell you, I like to laugh and I love to make other people laugh.

Why I am a Mormon

I was "born into the church" because my parents were members when I was born but in my youth I gained a personal testimony of the Savior Jesus Christ, His Atonement, the Book of Mormon, and the divine calling of the Prophet Joseph Smith. I spent two years in Peru as a missionary for the church during which time my testimony of the Gospel grew even more. Now I have a wife and a small child that I love so much and the church and Gospel are the rock in my life. My greatest wish is that my son and future children will grow up knowing the bedrock principles of the Gospel and that they too, will gain their own testimony of our Savior. I know the Savior lives and that he will come again. I know that we have a Heavenly Father who loves us and our happiness is His priority. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God and I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet and that he saw God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I attend my church meetings every Sunday and I have a calling as my ward secretary. I'm in charge of taking notes in meetings, calling people for a variety of meetings, and I organize interviews with church leadership. I am also a home teacher. Along, with another ward member I visit two different families in my ward at least once a month to share a message and see how they are doing. I actually really enjoy that part. I enjoy reading the scriptures and talks from current church leaders. They teach and inspire me to be better.
