Hi I'm Don

I'm a journalist. I used to work on a volunteer rescue squad. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in New Jersey and live in Utah. I am a professional journalist and an amateur photographer. I'm married with four children. I am also an adult leader in the Order of the Arrow, Boy Scouting's national honor society.

Why I am a Mormon

I was introduced to the church by my best friend. It was at a time when I, like Joseph Smith, was seeking God's church on the earth. Through the Holy Ghost, I know that the Lord Jesus Christ restored His church to the earth as it was organized during His mortal ministry, complete with prophets and apostles. Gaining that testimony was like being in a dark room and finding the way into the light. For me, the Gospel and the church help me to better know God, as well as that I am a son of God and that He has great blessings in store for me through the Atonement and through obedience to His commandments.

How I live my faith

I have several positions in my ward, or congregation. I teach classes for one of the priesthood groups, and I am a clerk to our bishop. I also go out and visit several families in our area to teach them gospel principles and to make sure they are OK. I also strive to be an example of the Gospel of Jesus Christ with those I encounter, both in my church assignments and at work.

Do Mormons only help Mormons?

Don
No. We will reach out to anyone who is in need of help. We believe we are all God's children, and it is our duty to help our brothers and sisters.  Show more Show less
