Hi I'm Troy

I'm a husband and a father of four children. I serve on the board of a non-profit organization. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My favorite hobby is spending time with family. Our four children are very active and love participating in sports. I try to be an active and supportive parent by providing encouragement, direction and occasional instruction. Sometimes my wife says to not yell so much at the referees! That's a work in progress. Every summer my wife and kids look forward to spending time with our extended family at the beach in Southern California. There's nothing much better, for an Arizonan, than feeling the cool breeze of the pacific ocean on an afternoon in July or August. As a family we try to schedule our day in order to have dinner together. At least one night a week we don't schedule any other activities so that it can be spent together. This weekly family night allows us to remember what matters most in our busy lives. When not with family I spend my days consulting with small businesses. I help them minimize costs, increase productivity and reduce liabilities. I also volunteer my time with various non-profit service organizations in our community.

Why I am a Mormon

Every day we are faced with decisions that will impact our future. The Gospel of Jesus Christ provides the knowledge and the path that enables us to make the right decisions. When I am faced with difficult decisions, I turn to prayer for answers. Sometimes the answers are not easy to discern, but I aways feel the peace that comes from Our Heavenly Father, through His Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. The restored Gospel of Jesus Christ means that my family and I can be together for eternity. What a plan! I am thankful that this knowledge has been confirmed to me through faith and prayer. This plan, The Plan of Salvation, allows for every child of God to receive the same witness I have. You too can come to know through your thoughts and feelings, after study, prayer and faith that Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth by a living prophet. I invite you to take the steps to receive your witness and answer.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday I get to teach 16 and 17 years olds from the scriptures during Sunday School. They are so eager to learn. They come prepared to learn so they can better face the trials and temptations that all teenagers experience. I have the title of teacher but I believe they, the students, are teaching me more.
