Hi I'm John Troxel

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happily married father of two girls and a boy. Being a dad is the best gig there is. I enjoy getting out and fishing, playing golf, reading, jiu jitsu, and officiating wrestling. My wife and I go out on routine date nights, which always seem to end up involving sushi. I have a private investigations firm with specialties in recovering digital evidence and also helping identify liability on environmentally contaminated sites.   

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in the LDS faith involves a cultural or social connection to the church, but that really only goes so far. I was was converted to the gospel of Jesus Christ through having various experiences . . . a process. Those experiences help me solidify the principles that I have been taught, which provided a great perspective on life. They help me know that I am a son of a loving Heavenly Father, and continue to help build a relationship with my Savior. They help me see others as brothers and sisters. And most importantly, they impress upon me the blessings of marriage and fatherhood. Life is just better when living according to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I enjoy serving in the church through various assignments. Serving helps me become more like Jesus, and helps me develop love for Him, as well as those whom I serve. Living my faith means keeping His commandments, and that includes showing kindness to all.  It also means trying my best to do what Jesus would want me to do, especially when others aren't looking!

What is being a Mormon like?

John Troxel
Being a Mormon is being a Christian. Taking all that God has revealed and continues to reveal, writing that upon our hearts, and living that way. Being the best we can be in every part of our lives, and trying to help others of our faith do the same.   Show more Show less
