Hi I'm Patrick

I love my wife. I love food. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Born & raised in Fresno California, I moved out to Utah to attend school. While studying, I met my gorgeous wife and we have been married since February 2012, she is my “pearl of great price!” I have a rather large family of five older brothers, three older sisters, one younger brother and two little sisters. I love them all very much! I enjoy meeting and building new relationships with people. This is part of the reason why I decided to study Dentistry.

Why I am a Mormon

President Ezra Taft Benson, former President of the Church said, “No one adequately and properly knows why he needs Christ until he understands and accepts the doctrine of the Fall and its effect upon all mankind. No other book in the world explains this vital doctrine nearly as well as the Book of Mormon.” I was just 12 years old when my best friend invited me to church for the first time. At that time, I never understood the need of Jesus Christ or the need to know of God’s plan. I attended church with my best friend and studied the Gospel with the help of the missionaries for a year. As my knowledge and understanding began to grow, my desire to act upon what I was learning grew, until I found myself praying to know if the Book of Mormon was true. When I came to know that it’s true, I realized that I needed Christ more fully in my life. I was baptized shortly after my 14th birthday.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be my best self all the time. I always try to make the right decision regardless of the consequences which follow. Sometimes I fall short but hey! You just need to keep moving forward and try to do better one day at a time.
