Hi I'm Todd

I was born in the USA, grew up in Australia, and lived in Spain for a couple of years - I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wonderful wife and I have been married for 25 years. We are the parents of four great kids - three sons (ages 22, 20, and 13) and a daughter (age 17). I am employed as Vice-President for Academic Affairs at a small Health Sciences University in Southern California. I am a chiropractor, radiologist, and professional educator. I love helping people!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are LDS - so I was raised in the church, but that is not why I am a Mormon. I am a Mormon because I read the scriptures, studied, pondered, and prayed to know which church taught the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ - and my prayers were answered! My answer didn't come in as a vision, or a voice from Heaven. It came as a feeling of peace, love, and assurance that I had found the truth. That sweet assurance has been repeated many times over the course of my life. I am so grateful to have received this blessing in my life, and want to share it with all!

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as Bishop in my ward. I have the privilege of helping people with their spiritual growth. I invite people to come unto Christ, to be a disciple, to improve themselves each day. What a blessing it is in my life to serve in this way! While it can be time-consuming - I have a supportive and loving wife and family who recognize the blessings we receive by following our Savior's admonition to follow Him.
