Hi I'm Tim

I'm a father, a healthcare executive, a wannabe golfer, an avid skier, a reader of history, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married to the love of my life and we have six children. With six children most of my free time is spent going to games, recitals, school programs and the like. Because family is so important to me, I have tried to include my family in hobbies we can do together--golfing, hiking, skiing, sporting events, boating, and playing card/board games. I don't do any of these too well, but exposing my children to a variety of wholesome activities has created a springboard for them to develop talents that have given them confidence to succeed in others aspects of their life. It brings me great happiness to see them succeed. I work on the business side of the healthcare industry to an organization committed to doing good and helping others. I love my career choice because it matches my values of trying to make a difference in peoples' lives and my interest in business. I enjoy being around people and setting up systems and processes to help others get access to affordable, high-quality healthcare. Over the years, I have seen many medical miracles and many heart-wrenching tragedies. Both have built my belief in God and the hope for an afterlife. I am grateful to work with so many talented women and men in a good cause.

Why I am a Mormon

Some think that life as a Mormon is restrictive (i.e. avoiding alcohol, no premarital sex, time serving others, etc.); however, I view it as a framework for a happy life for me and my family. Jesus Christ's teachings of kindness towards others, selfless service, and exercising self-restraint really do produce long-term happiness. Being a Mormon provides many opportunities to follow Jesus' teachings and to help my family follow His teachings naturally. For example, my son and I have been asked to regularly pray for, visit and serve other families in need. Another example is that my daughters are taught they are daughters of God and that He expects them to dress modestly and maintain their virtue. These service opportunities and high expectations provide a framework to follow Jesus and be happy. Just knowing that God loves me and is counting on me to help others focuses my attention on trying to be a better person each day. I'm not perfect, but being a Mormon helps me be a better person because of the strong focus on living Jesus' teachings.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to incorporate Jesus' teachings into my life. I seek to be honest in my business dealings, to be a faithful husband, and a loving father. I spend time in weekly worship services that help me draw closer to God, provide me with inner peace, and give me a better sense of purpose and direction in my life. Serving others makes me happy and reminds me how many blessings God has given me.
