Hi I'm Dennis

I have a great family. I love basketball and outdoors. I am a tax attorney. And, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a dad of seven great kids. My wife and I have been happiliy married for 20 years. We've has lots of pets over the years including a pig, rabbit, birds, snake, turtle, and a dog. My wife and I both grew up in Arizona but we have lived in Washington DC area 2 different times. We love both places. Our family loves sports including basketball, wrestling, football, tumbling, swimming, etc. We love being outdoors in the mountains of Arizona. We also love the beach. But most of all we love each other and the knowledge that we can be together forever as a family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a mormon but thats not why I'm a mormon. I'm a mormon because I truly believe our Heavenly Father has a plan for us and learning about and living his plan can bring us happiness in this life. I have felt this over and over in my life. As part of this plan we all must come to know and accept Jesus Christ as the Savior of us all.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to live the commandments, focus on my family priorities and being willing to serve God. Currently my son and I help to watch over some families in our neighborhood but visiting them regularly and seeming that their needs are taken care of. I also am involved with many of the youth activities in our church which is a great blessing. I also serve with a others to help oversee 2,000+ members of our church in our immediate area which includes a spanish speaking congregation and a native american congregation.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

I have thought about this question a lot in my life. In many ways everthning tells me there is a God. However, one of the biggest evidences to me that there is a God is the way I feel inside. I can feel things inside me that cause me to want to be a better person, that cause me to feel a need to help others, that cause me to know there is right and wrong, that cause me to feel there is more to me than just this life or my physical body. As I reflect upon those feelings they only make sense to me in the context of my understanding that God exists and I am one of his children. When I think about the idea that God is my father and creator, the feelings I have inside make sense to me and confirm that the existence of God is an eternal truth. Show more Show less
