Hi I'm Phil

I grew up in AZ. I converted @ age 24, I'm a husband, a father, a financial advisor, an avid golfer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a beautiful lady that fulfills my life. We have four children ages 13 yrs to 19 months, with the oldest being a girl. I did not have my dad around a lot when I was young because of work, So I do a lot of the running kids here and there and I love it. I am a small business owner and a financial advisor that profession provides a great schedule, that allows a lot of family time and I am thankful for it. I am an extremely avid golfer, I just love the challenge, It is so difficult and yet so satisfying at times, a lot like life. I converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was 24. That single decision was the greatest and most impactful of my life. I had very deep questions about, Who we are, and why are we here, and what is this life all about, and ultimately what happens after we die. All those questions and many more than I ever expected were completely answered, as I looked into the church not just intellectually but (most importantly) spiritually. I Know from sacred spiritual experiences that This is God's one true path through his son Jesus Christ back to him.

Why I am a Mormon

As I stated above I converted to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints when I was 24. And that single decision was the greatest and most impactful of my life. I absolutally know that God knows each of us and has a plan that if we will follow him, through his son Jesus Christ, that we will return to him. We are not here all alone, but I know many have felt that way during this life I did. God is there and waiting to give answers to those that are sincere and humble hearted, (those that will act on the answers they receive) to ask and he will answer you as he did me. Again as I said above I had very deep questions about, Who we are, Why are we here, and What happens after we die. If you are reading this, at this point, you have felt something stir inside of you about our faith, and I would tell you to meet with our missionaries as I did, and you to will know the greatest things available to mankind in this life, things that will fulfill you in this life and enable you to become all you can be for eternity. I know these things for myself and hold them as most sacred and precious above all other understanding.

How I live my faith

I have been a member of the church for 18 years and served a fulltime mission to Toronto, Canada just one year after I joined the church. I served the people of Toronto for 26 months and loved my time there. I have had various responsibilities as I have been in the church from working with our youth, to adult leadership roles and even helping our local missionary efforts. I have enjoyed them all, and will continue to serve wherever the lord feels I can help. We are also very committed to helping in our local communities, nationally, and internationally, I just recently participated in National Make A Difference Day and really enjoyed helping refurbish a local trail for hiking and biking. We help with food and clothing drives, serve food to the needy, and help at polling places during elections, just about anything you can think of to serve others we do. Internationally we provide relief when there are disaters, from hurricanes, to earthquakes, to floods we help around the globe, because we believe all people are Gods children.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Again if you are reading this you have questions that you can find answers to through our missionaries and members. We share the gospel with millions of people around the world in a friendly, invitational way. The most important thing we say to all who are looking into our faith and seeking answers too eternal questions, is that God will answer you, in a way that you will know for you, too you; and that is the only way you should believe if what we are sharing is true. That is exactly what he did for me 18 years ago and I know even stronger today that this is God's Church on the earth, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, and that we have the answers that have been sought for by mankind for eternity. I invite you to come and look for yourself and you too shall know what is the purpose of this life, But more importantly what is your purpose in life and your eternal ability and destiny. In the name of Jesus Christ Amen. Show more Show less
