Hi I'm Shawn

I am from Pocatello Idaho. I am an oral surgeon. I have lived and traveled to many places in the world. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a father of 6 children that I love very much. My family is my biggest hobby. I enjoy traveling and seeing all parts of the world. As an oral surgeon I have been a long time student and lived in Kentucky and Hawaii. I served active duty in the Army for 10 years living in Hawaii, Germany and Washington. Meeting and working with many cherished people from all over the world is a great joy in my life. I currently own a private practice of oral surgery.

Why I am a Mormon

My family joined the Church of Jesus Christ when I was very young so during my life I have been able to see how older family members changed as they let Christ into their lives. In my life I grew up in many cases living and practicing many of the teachings of the Church like regularly praying, reading from the scriptures attending church, obeying commandments and serving others. As I grew and would look on my life I could see very clearly how blessed I was and the principles were true. The testimony was and still is constantly growing like a sunrise gets brighter and brighter until full daylight is upon us. In my profile I have mentioned working with meeting all kinds of people both Mormons and members of other beliefs. In their lives I have seen struggles where I have been able to share parts of a fullness knowledge I have and in every way it has helped and blessed their lives. I know that following Christ and making Him a center of our lives is the true way and our Heavenly Father has a plan for us and all parts of that plan are found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

As my wife and I have moved and lived in other places in the world we have always trusted in God that we would go where He would have us go. We have also desired to be involved with the community and church. This has proven to be the biggest blessing in our lives we have met the most wonderful people. Working with adults and youth I have seen choice blessing and difficult trials that we as children of our Heavenly Father pass through. I have no doubt that as a live by faith and trust in Heavenly Father and serve like Jesus Christ our lives will be rich and full.
