Hi I'm Todd

I grew up in Scottsdale, AZ. I am the 3rd of 8 children. I love the outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Ha Ha I don't know if 1500 words is enough to describe me. I grew up in a LDS family in Scottsdale, AZ. I am the 3rd of 8 children. One of the things that I am most grateful for in my life is my family. During my growing up years I lived a pretty regular life of playing sports, going on vacations with my family, attending church on a weekly basis, etc. I served a church mission in Sao Paulo, Brazil, which was an amazing experience for the rest of my life. I attended BYU and majored in Business Management, with a Marketing emphasis. After working in the business world I made a decision to become a dentist. I attended Dental School in KY and have been enjoying working as a dentist for the last 3 years. Over the last many years I have lived in AZ, UT, NV, KY, and returned to AZ a place that I love. My interests are many: skiing, reading, running, camping, shooting, archery, etc. I continue on living the bachelor life even though I am 36. I have wonderful friends. And much to my surprise it only took me 1066 words to describe myself.

Why I am a Mormon

I have considered this question many times in my life. I am a Mormon for so many reasons but the most important is that it gives me the opportunity to come to know my Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

One of the wonderful things about being Mormon is that it is not a church that I only take part in on Sundays. It is a way that I live my life. When I wake up in the morning I try to say my morning prayers and spend some time reading the scriptures. During the day I try to live my life as Christ would have me live by being kind to others and serving them. I don't always accomplish that but I look for small ways to improve the lives of others around me by smiling at them, complimenting them, and showing interest in them.
