Hi I'm Beau

I grew up in Utah, I am a resident physician in Louisville, KY, and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently in residency training for combined adult internal medicine and pediatric specialties. My wife and I moved to Louisville, KY from Kaysville, UT in 2011 for medical training. We have one son who definitely makes life enjoyable and one son on the way in 2012. Our family really enjoys the outdoors. I love to hunt and fish. My favorite place in the world is the Madison River in western Montana flyfishing under the setting sun surrounded by deer, elk, and bighorn sheep. I have recently acquired a love for golf and enjoy getting out to the course when I have a free minute. I love volleyball/BBQ outings with our ward friends and our neighbors. Life is good and my family and I are very blessed and I really couldn't ask for more.

Why I am a Mormon

I know that God lives and that he is my heavenly father. We are all sons and daughters of God and he loves us and wants the best for us and our families. I also know that Jesus Christ lives and was the offspring of our heavenly father. He lived his life in the service of his fellow man. He atoned for our sins through his suffering in Gethsemane and on the cross on Calvary and overcame death through his resurrection. I know that Jesus Christ established his church while he was on the earth through the priesthood and called apostles to direct his church. After his death he continued to direct his church through direct revelation to his apostles on the earth who continued to lead the church under his direction. This church was subsequently taken from the earth because of the non-belief of the people at that time after the martyrdom of the apostles that Christ had called. I believe the earth was without this established organization of apostles, priesthood, and revelation for many years leading to great confusion and dissension among different religions that all believe in Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon is really as much of a lifestyle as it is a religion. With no paid clergy in the church, the members have the opportunity to serve one another in a variety of callings and positions. Currently I am working with the ward mission effort and helping to spread the blessings I receive through the gospel to my brothers and sisters in our community in Louisville. I enjoy my calling as a home teacher which gives me the opportunity to visit three families within our ward on a monthly basis to ensure their well-being. These families have become some of our best friends and support here in Kentucky. This is especially helpful since we don't have any family near us out here. I look forward to our 3 hour church block each Sunday where I learn from the testimony and experiences of other members of our church and learn from the teaching of modern day prophets who guide the church under the direction of Jesus Christ. My family is the greatest blessing I have in my life and families are the focus of the gospel. I know that through living the principles of the gospel I can live with my family forever and that death will never separate us.
