Hi I'm Clint

I was raised in Gilbert, AZ. I'm a chiropractor. I am married to an amazing woman and have two incredible sons. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

From the time that I was just a very young child I have been fascinated with airplanes. I can remember very vividly watching air force training jets fly over our house as well as the crop dusters that would spray the crops near our home. My greatest ambition was to grow up to be a fighter pilot, but the onset of near-sightedness in junior high crushed those dreams. Instead I ended up becoming a chiropractor and I love it! I get such satisfaction from the relationships that I have developed with my patient's over the years and witnessing the miraculous healing power that is within our bodies. Being able to take part in that healing process has been a highlight of my life. An even greater highlight of my life is my beautiful wife and our two amazing sons. The way that my boys scream "daddy!", the patter of their feet as they run to me and shower me with hugs when I come home from work is always the highlight of my day. I love being a father. In my free time I enjoy playing guitar, being outdoors/camping and watching movies. My wife thinks I am crazy for this but I most enjoy a movie when I get to go to a late night movie showing by myself. No distractions, no interruptions :0)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that belonged to the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, so I guess you could say that is how I got my start. However, while that is how I became a mormon it is not why I have remained a mormon. I am fiercely independent and was never the type to just go along with what others thought best for me. My parents could attest to this, as I certainly caused them many sleepless nights as I pursued a course contrary to what they would have wanted and to the standards of the church during my late teen years. After pursuing this course for a few years I can still vividly remember a conversation with one of my friends in which we realized that if we continued living the way that we were we would not have the kind of futures that we wanted for ourselves. It was at that point that I started going to church again, then decided to prepare myself to serve a full-time mission for the LDS church. Part of that preparation was to, for the first time in my life, seriously read and ponder the Book of Mormon. I will never forget how powerfully I felt the Spirit during this time of my life as I gained my own personal testimony that the Book of Mormon was true and that it contained the word of God just as the Bible does! I also therefore, knew that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that the church restored through him was indeed the church of Jesus Christ and contained the fulness of His gospel. In a world with so much chaos and uncertainty it is hard to describe how much peace it brings me to know that these things are true. One of the things I love most about the LDS church is its doctrines and teachings concering the 3 most basic questions of life: who am I?, where did I come from? and where will I go when I die? I know of no other church that can answer these questions in such a beautiful and simple manner that just makes sense.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith through my thoughts, words and actions every day. It is my sincere hope that my faith may be evidenced in the way that I interact with my family, the way I run my business and in the way I treat others in general. I know this is not always the case though. I have many flaws and have made many mistakes in my life. However, I have found that by giving it my best effort and continuing to try to be better inspite of hundreds of previously failed attempts, eventually I feel the saving power of the Lord's grace come upon me and I am suddenly freed from those weaknesses that I could not overcome alone. This is a life-long process, however, and although I have conquered many less-favorable habits and traits there are many more that yet need to be overcome.
