Hi I'm Dalton

I grew up in Utah. I am a car guy. I am serving a misson for my church in Italy. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am 19 years old and have been a member of the LDS church for two years. I love skimboarding, I love music, and l love my friends, and family, and i love cars. Before serving my mission i went to a year of college, unfortunatley no idea what my major is going to be. I figure that i can figure that out later.

Why I am a Mormon

When i was about 11 or 12 i moved to a new town and made new friends. It just so happened that all of the freinds that i made were LDS. I was confused as to what the church was so i started attending church every so often and going to scouts and being as involved as i could. After attending very few activities i could tell that this was an amazing church and that it had something different than the chuch that i was baptised into when i was a little kid. after another few years of doing this same thing i came to the realization that I needed to be a member of this church because i had had the witness that this church was true. so after much courage and waiting, i asked my mother if i could be baptized. I think the big moment that i knew that it was ment to be and that this church was absolutly true was in my mothers answer. The instant that i asked her she smiled and started to cry and said that she had been waiting for me to ask her that and that she was so glad that i finally did. So after that i got the missionary lesson read the book of mormon and got baptized. The cool ending of this story is that at that time my mother did not yet want to join. Two years later one day she told me that she and my little brother wanted to be baptized and she asked if i would do that. So in a two year period i was able to experience being baptized and baptizing my family. Also in the next month i was called on a mission to serve my church. I am on that mission now, and cant explain how amazing it is to be able to do that same thing that happened to me so recently.

How I live my faith

I live my faith at the moment by going on a mission to Italy to serve my heavenly father and doing my absolute best to strive to keep the commandments and to follow the teachings of our Prophet Thomas S. Monson.
