Hi I'm Kris Heap

I'm a dentist, a photographer, an author, and a mandolin player in a Bluegrass band. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Arizona. My amazing wife and I have 3 beautiful boys. I love to travel to other countries to do humanitarian work. I sometimes find that I have too many hobbies for my own good. I love to play just about any sport, photography, web design, music, teaching/lecturing, reading, etc. At times I feel I have stretched myself a little thin but usually I enjoy the diversity and excitement that life provides.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. I believe we are on this earth to have joy and I find true joy when I am with my family. Jesus Christ has taught us the principles to live happily and to help our families to be strong. I am a Mormon because I believe our Heavenly Father speaks to us today through a prophet. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith daily in sharing what I feel with others. I am currently serving as a bishop in the church. I love the opportunities it gives me to serve others as often as possible. My favorite way to serve is in teaching the youth of the church about how the Savior can bring them peace and comfort in their lives.
