Hi I'm Allan

I am the father of five sons, I love the mountains. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love the mountains of Idaho. I like to spend my leisure time backpacking, fishing, and hunting. I also ATV and snowmobile. I have five grown sons with families of their own who also enjoy these activities with my wife and me. I also enjoy high school and college sports and am a life-long Dodgers fan. I have worked in the insurance industry for many years. My area of practice is primarily public entities and I enjoy helping my clients meet their insurance and risk management challenges.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received a testimony, born to me by the Holy Ghost, that Jesus is the Christ. In that same way, I know that we are all children of a Heavenly Father who loves each of us and who has a plan for our happiness. I also have a testimony that the prophet Joseph Smith saw the Heavenly Father and Jesus and was called and ordained by them to restore the gospel and the true church upon the earth with all its ordinances and covenants. I testify that through Christ and these sacred ordinances and covenants we can be redeemed and sealed to our families for eternity. I am a witness of these things. I am a Mormon because following this plan makes me happy and gives me hope for the future.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve inside and outside of the church; working primarily with youth and young single adults. I also coached little league baseball and youth basketball for over 20 years. Through this service I have come to know many individuals whose faith and examples have helped me come closer to Christ.
