Hi I'm Brian David

I'm a Mormon .

About Me

I live in a small city in New York. I teach at an elementary school. I have two sons and a wife who is kind enough to put up with me.  

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church. The Gospel has always been a part of my life. My testimony of the gospel has always been present in my life, but it has grown and changed through each stage. I liken it a lot to being in "love" in high school. You feel as much of the emotion as you can, it's real and powerful, but once you reach your twenties and get married, you learn that there was even more to that love, and once you have children, you learn love runs even deeper. I am a Mormon because the more I live the gospel, the greater I feel, now matter what my circumstances in my life are.

How I live my faith

My wife and I attend church in our ward each Sunday with our two young sons. Between the two of them, church can be somewhat of an athletic event, but we enjoy it. Each Monday night we have Family Home Evening, where we have a gospel lesson, a favorite dinner, an activity, and a special treat. I work with the young men in our ward and my wife serves with the young children in primary. We strive to teach our boys the Gospel of Jesus Christ while they are young so they can have the blessings of the gospel throughout their lives.
