Hi I'm Brad

I'm a father of seven, a dentist and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 My wife and seven children constitute one of the greatest joys of my life. When I'm not creating smiles at work as a dentist or involved in the lives of my family I enjoy fitness and exercise. I also enjoy volunteer work and traveling and when I can combine the two I really get excited.

Why I am a Mormon

I honestly could not imagine my life without the structure, direction and guidance that the Church offers my family and myself. I am so grateful to know that I am a literal son of the living God. What peace, joy and comfort this knowledge brings, especially when times get tough. It is also comforting to know that there are living prophets on the earth today. Prophets who receive direction from God on our behalf. I am grateful to know that I have the ability to communicate directly with God through prayer and that when I do, He will answer my prayers giving me insight and understanding for mine and my family's specific needs. I LOVE being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I believe the Mormon faith is the reestablished ORIGINAL Christian Church that Christ himself organized when he came to earth. All of the teachings of Christ that are contained in the Bible are also contained in the doctrines of Mormonism. Christ came to earth and taught that we should strive to be LIKE him. This is how I strive to live my faith...TO BE LIKE CHRIST. This is not just a Sunday endeavor but a daily, hourly quest. The decisions I make at work, business transactions, interactions with friends, neighbors and colleagues are all affected by my desire to be more like Jesus Christ.  

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

We believe that the purpose of life is to become more Christ-like in all of our behavior and actions. We believe we came to earth as spiritual beings sons and daughters of God to have a temporal experience. Too many of us get this backwards and act like temporal beings having occasional spiritual experiences.  Show more Show less
