Hi I'm Phil C.

Born to converts and raised in the beautiful Pacific Northwest and yes, I'm a Mormon too.

About Me

7 quick facts about me... 1. Husband to a my best friend who is a Teton mountain valley beauty! 2. Father to three awesome kids. 3. Work has involved developing and managing small and large scale investment real estate assets. 4. Sports help keep me feeling young (even if my body disagrees)...volleyball, basketball, football, increasingly now soccer, sprint triathalons, baseball, golf, waterskiing/wakeboarding and the snow counterparts are amongst the favorites. 5. Delicious foods are a weakness. 6. My Man Card was revoked for a whole year after word got out that I actually read the Twilight Series. In all fairness, I feel so bad about it I don't feel deserving still to have it reinstated yet. 7. I know my Father in Heaven has a plan for us all, myself included, and am grateful for this knowledge.

Why I am a Mormon

I was on my own and studied the Book of Mormon when I sincerely understood the truthfulness of the church and the great Plan of Happiness. I feel a confirmation of this as I attend church, serve others, study the gospel and practice the things that Jesus taught.

How I live my faith

I am in imperfect person as anyone who knows me can confirm. I try to be improve and be better each day. I am particularly thankful for terrific examples in my life, but most of all the perfect one that Jesus Christ led for me which I often refer back to when I am unsure how to move forward. I enjoy sharing the good news that I have found at church with my friends and family and love it when they ask me questions about it. I value people that can appreciate anothers perspective even if they don't agree. I am grateful for the joy that the gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me and hope I can live as an example of that, taking it just one day at a time.
