Hi I'm Don M. Drysdale

I'm a business owner, a single father and a guitar player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Vail, Arizona and own a business where I help other business owners know the value of their business interests. I am a single father of three children and I enjoy a variety of interests including playing guitar, running my business and learning about the world.

Why I am a Mormon

The doctrines of the Church of Jesus Chirst of Latter-Day Saints make sense logically. I was in college the first time I read the Book of Mormon. It didn't take me long to realize that I, as a college student, could not write something like the Book of Mormon. That being the case, then how could Joseph Smith, having only a third grade education, write it. He had to have divine inspiration. But what really attracted me to the Church was the happiness I saw in the lives of the members that I knew. I wanted that kind of happiness in my life.

How I live my faith

Every day, first thing in the morning, I enjoy reading from the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon. It helps me start my day with a spirtual influence that seems to linger throughout the day. If I miss a day, I can tell. My day does not seem to go as well. I enjoy helping others learn more Jesus Christ and his Church. I especially like seeing the joy and happiness that comes to the life of someone who previously had little direction or hope in their life, and find greater happiness through the Gospel.
