Hi I'm Logan

I'm a father. I'm a husband. I'm an outdoor enthusiast. I'm a jack-of-all-trades and a master of none. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My daytime job is a dentist...but that's not what I really do. With 4 young kids, life gets pretty busy. I love being a father and watching my children learn and discover things about the world around them. It fills me with joy when I am able to teach my children why the grass is green, how to throw a ball or how to load the dishwasher. Considering the things I've been able to accomplish in life, the family my wife and I have created together is what I am most proud of. When I have a free moment, I really enjoy the outdoors whether it's just going for a run, a bike ride, waterskiing, snowboarding, backpacking, competing in a triathlon, or camping with my family. Some of my favorite moments are those moments with my wife after all the kids are in bed and the chaos takes a brief pause and allows us to get our bearings.

Why I am a Mormon

Like many others, I grew up a Mormon. I can remember sitting through meetings with my family on Sunday, sometimes happily, and other times just waiting till I could go home and play. When I was young, there were many values that were instilled in me which helped me to make good decisions (although not all the time) and to gain a testimony of Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon. When I was young, I thought things were always going to be the way they were, but life changes. When I became a teenager, many things began to seem different to me. Those things I thought I knew as a child, seemed more of a distant memory. It was harder to remember how I felt when I would talk about Christ or read in the scriptures. I began to realize that I was beginning to doubt whether this was all real. I wasn't sure what to do. I decided to begin to study the scriptures in earnest and seek guidance from Heavenly Father. I can still remember the experience, when I was 18, when I felt the comforting and guiding hand from God. That was the moment I knew for sure that what I had been taught and the direction I was going was right and this was what God wanted me to do. From there my testimony has grown and I continue to study the scriptures, pray, attend church and strive to do what the Lord has asked me to do.

How I live my faith

Currently I teach some of the teenagers in my congregation in a class that meets every morning, before they go to school, at 6am. There we study the gospel and discuss principles found in the scriptures before our days begin. I love teaching the gospel to these young people and hearing their testimonies and seeing their eyes light up when they feel the Holy Spirit working in their lives. I also spend time every month visiting a few members of our congregation. I attend church every Sunday and visit the temple whenever I can. I strive to live the gospel and love the examples of so many around me in my neighborhood, church and work environments of following the gospel principles.
