Hi I'm Todd

I love football, hiking, camping and pretty much anything outdoors. I am a doctor in Phoenix, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a very small town of 135 people. I love the outdoors and pretty much any type of sport. I am married with three beautiful boys, and I love spending time with them doing anything at all! I am an avid reader, when I have time, and I love treating my patients. I am a doctor in the greater Phoenix area and absolutely love my career! The most important thing to me is my family and I feel very blessed to have such a sweet wife and children. I am thankful every day for these blessings!

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life, and I feel so blessed for that. I love knowing I can be with my family forever and feel so grateful to my Savior for His atonement and gospel. I very much enjoy trying to live like He would have me live, even though I am far from perfect, I try to be the best I can each day. I love serving others, trying to keep the commandments and learning more about the life of the Savior. The gospel of Jesus Christ is really the only thing that matters and holds eternal signifcance in my life. It helps me keep the right perspective on what is most imprortant and helps me treat others the way He would have me treat them. I thank my Heavenly Father every day for this blessing and try to share this knowledge with anyone who is interested.

How I live my faith

I absolutely love the opportunity to serve others in my community, neighborhood and church. I have the great privilege of serving with others in my congregation helping to perform service, share the gospel message with others and try to assist the local missionaries in our area. I am asked to visit with and assist three families who live close to me and try to make sure they are always cared for and OK. I love getting to know them better and look for ways to assist in any possible way. Most of all, I try to pray daily, read the scriptures and think about how my Savior would have me behave that day. It helps me make better decisions and always remember to keep my life in an eternal perspective. It helps me realize also that there is nothing more beautiful or of more worth than the people I interact with each day.

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

God has provided many evidences of His existence. One of these is the testimony of His creations: “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork” (Psalms 19:1). Have you ever looked in awe at the night sky with its billions of stars? Or studied the intricate details of a leaf or flower? Or marveled at the miracle of a tiny new baby? These beautiful and complex creations didn’t come about by chance. They are the creations of God, your Heavenly Father. They can remind you of His existence and of His love for His children. An ancient prophet declared: “All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth... and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator” (Book of Mormon, Alma 30:44).
