Hi I'm David

I'm a Mormon. I hope that my information may be of interest to you.

About Me

My name is David. I live in southern California. I am married and have two older daughters. I work as a full time communication professor at a near by community college. I For this reason some of my interests include technology including computers, various software applications, online instruction, etc... I also love traveling with my family and seeing places. Photography is of interest to me. I just recently received my doctorate in education. My research area is in the area of mentoring and online education. Some of my other interests include gardening, sports (basketball and football), and working on projects around the house.

Why I am a Mormon

I am very grateful for my Dad as he was the first one in our family to investigate the church. My Dad, brother, and myself all took the missionary lessons together. I was baptized when I was 13. Being a mormon is a way of life not something you only live on Sundays. I always fear where I would be today if I didn't join the church. I was sealed to a wonderful women and we both strive to live the gospel together.

How I live my faith

I believe in living a Christ centered life. By saying this I try to say and do things as if my savior was standing right next to me. I also try to read the scriptures as a way to keep myself close to my Heavenly Father. My wife and I have started to discuss church lessons for family night as a way to increase our faith. Obedience is always something that I strive to live my life by. I know that I make mistakes so I am so glad for the atonement in my life and being able to renew my covenants with my Father in Heaven.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony to me is something that is a spiritual gift which is given to you by the power of the Holy Ghost. Members of the church like me believe that Jesus Christ lives and died for our sins. I know through this witness that we have a living prophet on the earth today which is Thomas S. Monson. The Book of Mormon is the word of God. Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and help to restore the true church on the earth once more. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church and that you can gain a testimony of this if you have that desire. Show more Show less
