Hi I'm Josh

I'm a dad, an orthodontist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 'generation X'er' dad who lives for my wife and sons. I love being outdoors in our mountain home, where I especially enjoy skiing and cycling with my family. I have the greatest job in the world, spending most of my days working with an amazing bunch of teenagers. The gospel of Jesus Christ is the foundation and centerpiece that brings balance and joy to my life.

Why I am a Mormon

Though a member all my life, my relationship with a loving God and His Son Jesus Christ was evidenced to me while sharing my beliefs in Argentina. While there, I learned that Heavenly Father is aware of and concerned about all of His children. Nobody understands me as an individual like He does. So, who better to look to for answers to life's questions than Him. I have learned that through the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, the heavens are open, that He hears and answers prayers. So, I know He lives, for He has heard and answered mine!

How I live my faith

I try to live what I know by being obedient to God's commandments. Among the most important of those is the commandment to love others. I recognize that service to my family and my fellow men and women is how I show that love. The Church has given me opportunities to serve the people in my own community in so many ways that would likely not have come to me otherwise.
