Hi I'm Bryan

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 58 years old. Married to my sweetheart for 36 years. We are parents of a daughter and 4 sons. 3 of our sons are married and we have a granddaughter and 2 grandsons. I am a country doctor in family practice and have served my patients for 25 years. I love to ride my bicycle through our rural countryside, hike the trails along our irrigation canals, read of history, especially of the manned space efforts, the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and of the establishment and continuation of the American Experiment. We travel as opportunity allows. Our family has established themselves in various communities in several states, so visiting them requires travel. Beyond that, there are wonderful things to see and places to visit that we have experienced and yet anticipate experiencing. We are busy with opportunities granted us to serve in the Church. We find these callings challenging, demanding, inspiring and a privilege to fulfill. We feel richly blessed! By way of explanation, my picture was taken while on a Youth Handcart Trek.

Why I am a Mormon

The heart of the matter is I wake up every day grateful that I want, with all that I am, to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I am grateful to pioneer forebears who converted to the Gospel in their homelands of Europe and came to Utah to establish their families. Their choice blessed generations after them, including me. But like them, I too have made progressive choices to be a Mormon. Such choices have rarely come as the easiest road to travel. But they have provided me the opportunity to experience first hand the Lord's Promise to answer those who faithfully 'knock' and to receive of Him because I chose to 'seek'.

How I live my faith

This is a good question. The answer, the best I can! My life's work as a physician was chosen because I want to be of service to those who would come to me for care. My present service in the Church is such that I now have 2 jobs, one is my profession the other is the ministry to which I am called. Our neighborhood and community is filled with great people. We look out for one another. Life provides so many 'ups and downs' that there is always someone or something that needs attention.
