Hi I'm Phil

I have retired after practicing dentistry for thirty eight years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My wife and I are the parents of six children and the grandparents of fourteen with one on the way. I love many kinds of good humor and am considered a bit of a tease. I am a flower gardener with an especial fondness for dahlias. I have taught early morning religious education to high school students for several years and currently teach a teen age Sunday school class.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a Mormon but have solidified my faith with historical and scriptural research and some personally significant spiritual experiences. My faith has been a source of great joy and peace and I believe significant personal growth.

How I live my faith

I strive to treat others respectfully and kindly and look for opportunities to be friendly. I try to continue my spiritually oriented studies and to maintain a personal connection with Christ and Our Heavenly Father. I try to put my family first and to repent regularly.  My wife and I spent a year in China overseeing the distribution of wheel chairs and school books and the provision of clean drinking water to rural villages. I consider service to others as the highest form of worship.
