Hi I'm D. Gross

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in California in the 60's but I didn't feel right about going along with the crowd. I was searching for answers about life. This Church answered all my questions and the answers felt right. Now I've been married for 31 years and have 3 kids, now all grown, and 2 granddaughters. Having a family that's continuously growing is a real blessing.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was growing up I wondered about why people are here on earth. Other churches I attended had some of the answers but not all of them. Other members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has been like an extended family for me.

How I live my faith

Having a church calling is one of the things that keeps me actively participating in the church. I love the interaction with other members I see each week. My calling is a ward family history consultant. I've been researching my own family history for 29 years and I love helping others with their research. I've even linked my family tree with the family tree of other members several times over the years.

Why do Mormons believe in “eternal life?”

D. Gross
I believe that God put us here for a reason. This life would hold no purpose if we just "disappeared" after we died. Our life here on earth is a time for us to learn and grow, and to help others around us do the same. When we help others grow we find a deep satisfaction and joy that helps us grow as well. Just as birth is a doorway to this life, death is a doorway to the next life, where we will live forever. Show more Show less
