Hi I'm Bryan

I was born in Utah, grew up in Louisiana. I am a dentist, a husband and dad of three kids. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Utah, grew up in Louisiana, moved to Nebraska when I turned 18, served a mission in Honduras, lived in Maine for two years and have lived in Idaho for the last 17 years. I met my wife in Nebraska while I was going to school. We have been married for 23 years. We have 3 kids one is grown the other two are close. My hobbies are ones that I have enjoyed my whole life. I enjoy playing golf, hunting and fishing. My son and I just returned from a safari to South Africa which was a great experience to share. I currently work as a dentist in my own private practice.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that has a long history as members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. At some point I think each person must find for himself if those things he was taught as he grew up are really true. My convictions in the truthfulness of the teachings of the church did not come suddenly. I always had faith and a belief in what I was taught by my parents and at church. I believe that through obedience to the commandments that God has given us we receive affirmation and a knowledge of the truth through the influence of the Holy Ghost. Because of this continued witness of the truthfulness of the gospel I remain an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I serve as bishop of the ward where I live. As a lay minister it is a sometimes overwhelming responsibility. However it is a great privilege to serve our Heavenly Father and His Son through this calling. Through my calling I can share my testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Service is what gives our lives meaning. Service comes in our families, in church, community and many other ways. I hope the way I most live my faith is by giving meaningful service.
