Hi I'm Chris

I'm a dad, a dentist, a husband and a grandfather to sixteen really cute grandchildren. I'm an enthusiastic Mormon.

About Me

I'm a dad, a grandfather and a dentist. I'm married to a wonderful wife and have 5 children and 9 grandchildren. I enjoy reading, traveling and watching the occasional football game with my kids. My life revolves around my family and the church.

Why I am a Mormon

At first, of course, it was because I was raised in the Church in a small town in eastern Utah. Now it is because I can't imagine my life without the influence of the Church. I feel the spirit every day as I try to abide by the teachings of Christ. I am comforted in difficult times by His revealed doctrine. I enjoy the opportunity the Church gives me to serve and I love the members of my ward and stake. I believe Christ is the head of the Church and President Monson is his prophet.

How I live my faith

Life can be challenging and the gospel has always given me the opportunity to look on the bright side when things get a little difficult. The Lord said to the Prophet Joseph Smith, "...all these things shall give thee experience and be for thy good." This is just one example but as a framework for living, the gospel informs my life and helps me be a better person. As I serve in the church it's a wonderful blessing to talk to young people and share gospel insights with them.
