Hi I'm Aaron

I'm a CRNA. I love playing golf. I have a beautiful wife and 4 great children, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a CRNA for about 3 years now. I love my job. I just finished my doctoral work and enjoy doing what I do. I also do some part-time instructing when time allows. I have been married for almost 10 years now to my beautiful wife Ardith. She is fantastic and I am lucky to have her. We have 4 children, 2 girls and 2 boys. They are a lot of fun and keep us very entertained (and busy). We just currently settled in Arizona, but over the last decade have lived in Illinois, Tennessee, and Oklahoma. We've lived in it all, from the big cities to the small country towns. I love playing golf, riding the jet skis, and playing sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but that doesn't mean I didn't have to find out for myself what I believed was true. I consider myself converted to this church because of those "finding truth" experiences. I know this church is the true church of Jesus Christ. The Book of Mormon has a scripture that says, "Adam fell that men might be, and men are that they might have joy". I know that true joy and happiness comes from being obedient to God, and following his commandments. The gospel of Jesus Christ is on the earth today, and anyone can find out the truth of that for themselves, just like I did. If we pray to God, and ask him with sincerity for truth, He will answer us through the Holy Ghost. That's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am not a perfect person, but I know Heavenly Father loves me, and wants me to be the best me I can be. This comes in a large part by trying to emulate the life of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I try to do a little better everyday. Whether that's to be a better co-worker, husband, father, church/community member, anything. I take time throughout the week to analyze myself and see what things I can do better to be more like our Savior. That's how I try and live my faith.
