Hi I'm Tim
I am a husband, father, pediatric dentist, wanna-be farmer, and I'm a Mormon.
I am a husband, a father of the two cutest girls in the world, a Dentist currently in a Pediatric Dentistry residency, a public health proponent, a hobby gardner, a future small-scale local farmer on the side, and a budding horseback-riding enthusiast. I grew up in Vancouver, Washington, the third of five boys. I am also concurrently working on a Masters degree in Public Health, increasing my knowledge and awareness of important things going on politically, culturally, and especially on a community level. Healthy communities make healthy individuals. Part of my travels have included a trip to Kenya to promote oral health, and a trip to Uruguay to learn more about sustainable agriculture. I served a 2-year mission in Germany, and appreciate the people I got to know and the experience I had. They have helped shape me into the person I am today. I choose to be a Mormon because it liberates my soul, allowing me a more fully-accessible joy that otherwise could not be attained.
Why I am a Mormon
The full gospel of Jesus Christ, found in the Bible as well as through restorations of truth in modern times, answers all of life's important questions. I know who I am and what my whole potential is as a son of a Heavenly Father, made possible because of what my Savior Jesus Christ did for me.
How I live my faith
The gospel of Jesus Christ teaches principles to live by, helping us become something better. Each day I strive to live these principles, not simply secluded in my bedroom reading a praying day and night, but through my daily interactions with the people around me. The teachings of Jesus Christ are the foundation upon which I build my life, my family, and my goals.
