Hi I'm Widd

I'm a retired professional baseball player, physical therapist, cyclist, father, husband of a beautiful wife, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a former professional baseball player in the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers organization. When I retired I went back to school and recieved my doctorate in physical therapy. Currently I own 2 physical therapy clinics and love to serve others through my work. More importantly I am a father of 5 children, 4 boys and 1 girl. My children are active in acting, music, sports, and academics. I feel blessed to have such wonderful children. My wife and I met in junior high school. When I was called to serve a mission for the church in Des Moines Iowa she played college basketball. She continues to be very active. Currently we participate in cycling together. Her faith is strong and lifts me each day. Together we experience trial and triumphs building fond memories through our jouney in life together.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon initally because my ancestors were Mormon and lived their faith. They taught their children and I fell in their line. I'm currently a Mormon because of the life experiences I have had. These experiences repeatedly confirm what I have been taught in regards to faith, service, tithing, and other gospel principles. I am a Mormon because I have prayed and answers to my questions have been giving to me through the warm feelings of the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attempting each day to be honest in my dealings a work. I try to serve others when I can. I struggle through life as everyone does but try to turn my life to Christ and emmulate his example. I have been blessed with talents which I am happy to share with others through activities such as coaching and helping people to get relief from pain and disfunction.
