Hi I'm Dustin

I am a husband, a father of 2, a student at UW and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Dad of two little ones. Both kids are under 3 years of age. I am trying to balance work and home, fitness and flabbiness, church and family. I recently started the evening MBA program at UW. I am trying to hold it all together. I rely heavily on the Lord to help me get through this time in my life and the life of my family. I love sports, the outdoors, and spending time with my wife and kids. I wish there was more time in the day.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me LDS. My mom is a convert and my Dad is 3rd generation LDS. I am mormon because I have a testimony of the Book of Mormon and of Joseph Smith. I know that the restored chruch is on the Earth and know that I am a member of it. I have a deep testimony of the Savior and his love for me. I know that he speaks to all who will listen to His message. I have heard His message and felt His spirit. I try to keep the commandments and live the gospel everyday. The Gospel has touched all aspects of my life and I feel so blessed to have the knowledge of the Gospel in my life.

How I live my faith

I am incharge of the middle age guys in my ward. I am learning my calling and all the duties that I am responsible for. There are so many things to learn and do. Our ward is pretty cool. There are a lot of really interesting people in my Ward! I try to lead the best I know how. I try to be an example of one of the believers. I try to be an example of the Savior and treat everyone with love and respect.

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Baptism is required to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The Savior was baptized as an example to all of us. We are baptized to follow His example. We are also baptized for the remission of our sins. Baptism makes us clean. Baptism is one of the first ordinances of the Gospel. Show more Show less
