Hi I'm Phil Borgia

I'm a Mormon. I was born and raised in Northern California

About Me

I have been happily married going on 30 years. I am a father of three children and a grandpa to two (soon to be 3). When I am not working, I enjoy the outdoors, exercising, going to movies or just spending time with my family. I attended BYU for a year before serving a mission for my church. I had the privilege of working with the people of France. I returned home after two years to resume my education at BYU where I received both my bachelor's and master's degree in accounting. After spending a brief time in public accounting, I left the field of taxation and started my own business. I am currently a State Farm agent with my own agency of 23 years.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents joined the church when I was only a couple of years old. What attracted them to the church was the emphasis the church put on families. For my father, it was always about families and he instilled it's importance in all his children from as early as I can remember. Family home evening was every Monday night and it took precedent over everything. Family scripture study and prayer where also important. I am a Mormon, not just because of the teachings of my parents but because of my own search for the truth. We live in a troubled world today where philosophies of men run the extreme. Everybody has their own take on what's important and what will bring true happiness. There is reassurance knowing we have a living prophet to guide us in these troubled and uncertain times. Not only do I know we are guided by a prophet today ( currently Thomas S. Monson) who provides us the direction we so desperately need, but the LDS church continues to teach us eternal principles that don't change with time. Principles, if followed, will bring true happiness, a sense of fulfillment, and ultimately an eternal family with our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by striving to follow the teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He set the example for all of us to follow. I am obviously active in my church. I enjoy working in the temple once a week. However, in addition to my church responsibilities, I am also active in my community. I belong to the local Rotary club and the local chamber. I try to give back to the community what it has been so generous to give me.
