Hi I'm Brad

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I am a Dentist. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband with four beautiful children. They help me utilize much of my time and energy, but are without a doubt, my greatest joys. I love to read, stay physically fit, and enjoy singing and performing musical theatre. I enjoy both playing and watching most sports. I love to help people through my profession. It is a wonderful thing to help folks improve their self esteem through a fix in their smile, or to assist them in providing relief to pain and discomfort.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my faith means everything to me. I was raised in the Mormon religion, but found out at the age of 19 when asked to serve a mission for my church, that I truly did not know of it's truthfulness. I prayed earnestly to know of the truth. I labored with my feelings, struggled with my weaknesses. It was a very trying time in my life. But as I implored of God to help me find the truth, my prayers were finally answered. I knew that the Mormon Church was true. My life reallly had meaning and made sense. I no longer relied on anyone else's words, but knew the truth for myself. Since then, my life has continued to improve every day because of my faith in Jesus Christ and his church. I am a Mormon because it makes me want to be a better person. It helps me to see everyone as a son or daughter of God-my brothers and sisters. It helps me to love.

How I live my faith

I try to serve my community as much as possible. I have been involved with the local community theatre organization and have tried to share my faith and tesitimony through song. I feel the Holy Spirit the strongest when good, wholsome music is around me. I try to be as Christlike as possible through my profession as well. My belief in being honest with my fellowman is one of my core values, and one that I will never compromise. I'm certainly as far from perfect as a man can be, but I'm trying very hard every day to improve. Earlier this year, I was asked to serve our local congregation, or ward, as the Bishop. I was asked to take on the responsibility of counseling, leading and providing Spiritual guidance to individuals that I cared for very much before the assignment. But I have grown to love the good people of my ward beyond anything I could have imagined. I have seen the goodness they exude. I have felt of their love and heard their prayers for our community and country. They have helped me to increase my love for my fellowman as well. They have helped me to serve. That is how I live my Faith-through service to all I come into contact with, whether I know them or not.
