Hi I'm Philip

I grew up in northwest Kansas and have been a Mormon all my life.

About Me

I am married and have been married for 6 years. I am a father of two beautiful children, ages 4 and 2. I currently am a financial advisor for a financial services firm and assist people preparing for their retirement and other life goals. I enjoy watching & playing sports, working on different home projects with my wife, and playing with my kids.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. My parents were both converts to the church, and they helped me understand our Savior's love. I have attended church every Sunday growing up and was taught by parents and Sunday school teachers about the scriptures and the doctrines of Salvation. These teachings helped me want to grow and learn more about where I came from, the purpose of life, and where I will go when I die.

How I live my faith

I try to live the way Christ would, although I'm far from perfect. Just ask my wife. :) I currently teach an early morning scripture class for our high school age youth at 6:00 am.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We certainly do believe the Bible to be the word of God. I especially enjoy reading the New Testament and enjoy teaching my young children the stories of the Old Testament. I have been asked by our Ward to teach early morning Seminary to our high school aged youth, in fact, and we are learning from the Old Testament this school year. Show more Show less
