Hi I'm Darren

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father of one with one on the way. I am an optometrist and love helping people see better. My family and I spend time out doors hiking, cycling and playing sports. The outdoors also helps feed my passion for photography. I strive to help people see the beauty and amazing sights that our heavenly father has given us.

Why I am a Mormon

My faith provides me with the purpose, stability and happiness. I never wonder what this life is all about. I don't sit in fear of what the future is going to hold. I know God has a plan for each of us and through faith in him we can know what he wants us to do. I don't know what the future holds but I do know it will have challenges. Though the strength that I receive from the gospel of Jesus Christ I know that my family and I can overcome the challenges we have in this live and be happy.

How I live my faith

The way you live your life is the true testament of your faith. I do my best to live the values I have been taught. I believe that everyone should learn how to serve their neighbor. I have been lucky to be able to donate my time and teach the youth group and run youth group activities at church. Working with these teenagers has been a great blessing to me. It give me an opportunity to help enrich their lives as well as learn from them and have them help me become a better person. I love teaching have been able to pass on the values that have been so important in my life. Values like honesty, integrity and the rewards of knowing how to work. I try to do my best to exemplify these values in my life. No matter what the condition of the world, if we are willing to live those values and serve others we can be happy with our circumstances.
