Hi I'm David

I live in Seattle. I play ice hockey and sell apartment complexes. I have 2 chickens and a dog, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I got married 4 years ago (one of the greatest blessings of my life). I went to school in Idaho and served a mission in Campinas, SP, Brazil. I used to organize and teach swing dancing. I play ice hockey, racquetball and golf, and I sell apartment complexes for a living.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a mormon family and baptized at 8. When I was about 18, I decided that I only went to church because I was born into it, so I stopped going to church. At 21, I really felt that I needed a church, and I went to many of them - but I hadn't returned to try the church of my youth. One day I ran into two different people I had known in the past but hadn't seen in many months. They each said the same thing exactly. "I haven't seen you at church. You should come to the meetings I go to at this building at this time." The exact same thing. I thought there was a good chance that God was reaching out to me, and I decided to go. I immediately felt welcomed and comfortable. Later, after a lot of praying, I came to know that Jesus Christ loved me and what it meant to feel the Spirit. I knew the church was true, and I felt called to serve a mission. I was nearly 23 when I left for my mission, and it was the best decision of my life to that point.

How I live my faith

I'm the same imperfect person I was, but I am continually trying to improve myself and to live better each day. I know that the more I can follow Christ's example and commandments, the happier I and my family will be.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Jesus Christ is the way the truth and the life. He is literally our Savior. Without Him, there is no salvation. I strive to be a true disciple of Jesus Christ by professing my belief in Him and striving to live following His perfect example. When I stumble, it is only through His atonement that I can find forgiveness and return to the way. Show more Show less
