Hi I'm Justin

I'm a Mormon. I am also a dentist, husband and father of two boys.

About Me

I grew up in Idaho Falls, ID. I have been married over 6 years to Stacey Heaton. We met while studying at BYU-Idaho. We were marries after a year of dating in the Seattle temple. We now have two boys. Jack is almost five and Anderson is two and a half. We live in Biloxi Mississippi where I am a dentist for the United States Air Force. After Mississippi, we will move to another Air Force base for three more years. We are still not sure where we will go for those three years. After that, I plan to return to school to become a pediatric dentist. We hope to end up somewhere closer to home once our time in the Air Force is up.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a member of the LDS church. I had been taught the principles of the gospel from a young age from wonderful parents. Prior to serving a mission to Guatemala, I had decided that it was time to know for myself if what my parents had taught me my whole life was true. I gained a testimony and continue to strive to strengthen that testimony daily. The truths and principles of the gospel have blessed me and my family greatly. I feel that the church and it's teachings keep me and my family safe in a world that is continually becoming more dangerous. The church teaches the importance of virtuous and righteous living which is something I am committed to teaching my own children.

How I live my faith

I strive to live my faith by sharing it with others. We have wonderful missionaries and leaders who encourage us to share our beliefs and testimonies with others. I strive to be a good example at work and within my community. I love to serve within my ward and have loved getting to know the members and their diverse backgrounds. I try to teach our children the importance of scripture study and personal prayer.
