Hi I'm Patrick

I was born in Provo, UT and raised in San Diego, CA. I'm a devoted husband and father, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Provo, UT and raised in San Diego, CA. I am married to my beautiful wife and have 5 wonderful children, 2 boys and 3 girls. We currently live in Colorado Springs, CO. I have an undergraduate degree in business/finance and an MBA in finance. I currently work for a large defense contractor as a financial analyst. I enjoy mentoring and working to help develop others. I enjoy singing and playing the piano, especially choral music. I enjoy playing and watching many different sports. I am also one of those guys who likes to watch "chick flicks" and particularly enjoy Jane Austin movies.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised in a family that belonged to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I have come to a knowledge and personal testimony for myself that God the Father and His Son Jesus Christ live. I have come to know for myself that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is truly God's restored church on the earth today. This strong conviction has come to me through the power of the Holy Ghost. I respect those of all faiths. I also invite all to be open to hearing the message of God's restored Gospel. It is my conviction that His restored Gospel can bring increased happiness and joy into the lives of His children.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by example. My faith is rooted in Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ. There is so much they have given me, therefore, there is never too much I can be asked to do to follow them. I have a strong conviction of serving others and enjoy serving those in my congregation and community. At my church I support a group of brothers and their families in our congregation. I enjoy the opportunities they give me to serve them and their families. I know that I am far from perfect, but thank goodness for a loving Heavenly Father who is patient with my shortcomings. He truly is our Father in Heaven.
