Hi I'm Andrew

I'm a husband, and father. I'm a Hyperbaric and Wound Care Physician and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently Director of a Hyperbaric and Wound Center in Utah. Although I enjoy my job, my family is the most important thing in my life. I have an amazing wife and fun little boy. Before I was married, I was a 2 year lds missionary in Korea where I met a lot of wonderful people from whom I learned a lot. Upon my return, I decided to go into medicine as this was a natural progression for me from a mission. I am happier than I have ever been in my life, all thanks to my family and my personal relationship with my Heavenly Father.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in Salt Lake City. My parents were both members of the mormon church, so naturally, so was I! It wasn't until highschool age when I realized I couldn't just follow what my parents had taught me, I needed to know for myself. I still remember the moment when I realized the book of Mormon was a sacred book. I was sitting on my bed, reading the Book of Mormon, and an overwhelming peaceful, and joyful feeling came over me. Something told me this was a true record of a people who knew of Christ, and taught about Him, and recorded it for our benefit. It wasn't a voice, just an assurance. The mormon faith itself is quite simple to understand. You read the Book of Mormon, pray about it, and God will tell you through a similar feeling I had that the book is true. If the book is true, then the way it came about must also be true. Regardless of one's situation, it's just that simple. The only thing I can compare the feeling to is how I feel after I've served someone else, or done something for someone I wasn't asked to. It's not a voice, it's an assurance that you're a part of something good.

How I live my faith

In my local congregation, I am involved in the sunday school program. By attending church, I also get to feel like a part of a large family. There is always a friend in the church, no matter what happens.
