Hi I'm Brett

I am a dentist in Idaho that loves his family more than anything else in life. I enjoy driving my classic cars and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born and raised in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States where I have been blessed to enjoy many outdoor activities all my life. We had a small farm when I was young where we raised cows, horses, chickens, hunting dogs and an occasional pig or goat. I was driving tractors and trucks on the farm when I was barely 8 years old and ever since I have had a fascination with classic cars and trucks. My first truck was a 1947 Ford and my current classic car is a 1964 Corvair convertible. I am a Dad of 6 beautiful children and am married to their mother. She is my Eternal Sweetheart and has been by my side for over 25 years of splendid adventures.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up in a family that has been members of the Mormon church for many generations has been a great blessing in my life. Many of my Grandparents and Great Grand parents have been leaders in the the church and its early expansion in the western United States. I have always enjoyed attending church meetings and reading the scriptures like the Bible and the Book of Mormon since a young age. When I turned19 years old I was called to serve a full time mission for two years in Argentina. I accepted the call with great enthusiasm while serving in that country I had some very spiritual experiences preaching the gospel. Now my son is serving a mission and writing us letters each week about his experiences.

How I live my faith

My favorite opportunity to serve in a church position was being a Scout leader while my sons were in Boy Scouts. We went on a campout every month even in the winter and a week long camp in the summer. When it was time for me to serve in a different area of the church after 6 years as the Scoutmaster I calculated that I had spent just over a 100 nights sleeping in a tent. It was a real blast to lead the scouts and be there with my sons as they all eventually earned their Eagle Scout awards. I am grateful that the church allows us to serve in volunteer positions so we can grow and contribute to the education and growth of others while also developing some of our own talents.
