Hi I'm James

I'm a pediatric dentist, a father and love college football. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of five wonderful children, I grew up in Idaho and have lived in Arizona for 10 years and love it. I am a Pediatric Dentist that loves to work with children. I work with the Boy Scouts, love to camp, hunt, boat and watch my kids play sports. I am enthusiastic about college football and love BYU and University of Florida. I love my family and I love to enjoy life.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, although not real active. I gained my testimony when I was a senior in high school and then decided to serve a mission. I served a mission in Philadelphia where the Gospel influenced my life even more. Following my mission the Gospel has played a major role in my life, I love my Savior and am grateful for all he has done for me. I am married to a wonderful woman who is a great example to me and we love to teach the gospel in our home to our children. The teachings of Jesus Christ allow us to sleep a little easier knowing that our children have the tools to make correct choices. The Gospel is integral in all aspects of our lives and we try to emulate Jesus Christ in all that we do. I know that living the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ brings happiness into our lives.

How I live my faith

I am an active member of our community and ward. I love to work with children and youth. I work with the Boy Scouts of America and help sponsor and coach various youth sports leagues. I teach the young men of our ward and look for service opportunities for the youth and for my family. I treat people the way that I would want to be treated. I am grateful to have the teaching of Jesus Christ to direct me and guide me as I strive to be a good husband and father.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

A Mormon lifestyle is one full of happiness. We live by taking care of ourselves, loving our families, taking care of our neighbors and serving. We have lots of direction that enable us to use our freedom of choice in the best possible way. What better way to live than to try and emulate our savior Jesus Christ. Show more Show less
