Hi I'm Patrick

I am a Professional Educator and an Air Force Brat! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up all over the world and various states in the United States. I attended college and became a teacher. Later on in my career I became a school principal. I spent 32 years in public education. I am a veteran of the United States Army. I love ocean sports, particularly surfing, play guitar and love to sing. I am the father of 6 and grandfather of 16.

Why I am a Mormon

The first time I heard the Joseph Smith story I knew that it was true. It made such a strong impression on me. I knew in my heart that this was true! I believe in the family unit and know that it was planned to be this way. I trust in the gospel plan as it has been establish from before the beginning of time. I know that we have a loving God and that Jesus Christ is our Savior. I know that we have a living prophet today and that the Lord directs the church through him. I am a Mormon, because I have faith and it brings me joy!

How I live my faith

I work with Family History. I serve in the capacity of Family History Consultant. This means that I assist others to search out and find their ancestors. I attend the my meetings and follow the teachings of gospel. I care about my fellow man and try to demonstrate this in my daily actions. I pray every day and seek out ways to assist my friends and neighbors.
