Hi I'm Randy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of 3 children and grandfather of 5 grand daughters and a grand son. I'm a pediatrician, and love to interact with children. I love to ride quads in the dunes, ride Segways and scuba dive. I love to play!

Why I am a Mormon

I love to feel happy. Living the gospel of Jesus Christ allows me to be happy. Living life with the knowledge of why I'm here on the earth, and what is expected of me to return back to my Heavenly Father is a real comfort. Some of the teachings that make me the happiest are: the knowledge that husbands and wives can be married forever, and that I can be with my family for eternity. I love the fact that the gospel makes sense, and that we haven't been left here on earth without plan or road map. We are children of our Heavenly Father and He knows each one of us individually. He loves me.

How I live my faith

One of my favorite things about the church is that it is a service oriented church. I love to work on service projects with other members of the church, because they are not afraid to roll up their sleeves and get to work. I'm always fascinated with how much work gets done when they are involved. Not only in the community, but when disasters occur around the world, the church is usually amoung to the first to arrive, and last to leave. As a pediatrician, I have been able to participate in church organized humanitarian programs to teach neonatal resuscitation to health care providers in Bolivia and Paraguay. The church organizes seminars to help educate the medical care providers of other countries with high infant mortality rates. The provide the manuals, supplies, and knowledge to help those countries save the lives of thousand babies who otherwise would have died. The Church not only takes care of its members, but tries to help all of God's children. How cool is that?
