Hi I'm Dustin

I grew up in Idaho, my wife & I have 6 wonderful children, and we moved to Arizona about 11 years ago. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy spending time with my family. I find it is the small things in life that are most important, and the moments I share with my family are what I treasure most. We enjoy many activities such as hiking, swimming, playing board games, talking with people on the other side of the world via Ham Radio, and camping.

Why I am a Mormon

Our faith is simple and straight forward. It isn't complicated. Jesus atoned for our sins so that if we accept his sacrifice and come follow him we can return to live with him and our Father in Heaven with our family. That is the ultimate in happiness, and all that I could hope for or want. Being with family is a great source of joy and happiness, and through Heavenly Fathers plan, we can all return to him and be together forever for all eternity.

How I live my faith

Besides attending church on Sundays, our children participate in activities for the youth, such as Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts for my boys, and a weekly fun activity for the youth ages twelve and older. I volunteer some time as an assistant Financial Clerk for my church and assist with things such as counting donations, writing checks, and reconciling bank statements. I am also a Home Teacher and visit a couple of families on a monthly basis to bring a gospel message into their home.

Are Mormons Christians?

The very name of our church starts with "The Church of Jesus Christ . . ." - it bears his name, it is his church. The term Christian in fact is a term for followers of Christ, so by definition we are in fact 100% Christian. We believe in Christ, he is at the very head of our Church by directing our living Prophet, and we strive to follow Christ and his example in everything that we do. Show more Show less
