Hi I'm Dustin Hughes

I'm a Mormon. I'm just a normal guy. I like sports and food. And I have a great family.

About Me

I'm 41 years old. I've been married 20 years. I have 3 sons--ages 17, 7, and 5. I'm the manager of a grocery store, and in my free time I like to play sports and just relax with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am so grateful to be a member of God's church here on earth. I know that by keeping the commandments the best I can I stay on the path that will allow me to live with Him again after this life. That's only possible because of Jesus' sacrifice for me and all of us! I am able to be so much happier as I go through life, because Jesus lovingly died for me. I know this church is true, because each time I read the Book of Mormon I feel good. And when I live the principles taught there I feel better.

How I live my faith

I try to be a good home teacher. To do that, I try to see the families I'm assigned to at least once a month. I make sure things are going well for all the members of the family. I keep up on their accomplishments at work and school, and I definitely remember their birthdays! And I try to uplift the spirit in their home by teaching a principle of the gospel while I'm there and having a prayer. Home Teaching is such a great program where we all look out for each other.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Dustin Hughes
A testimony is just a conviction that I have that something is true. A lot of times different members of the church will have testimonies about different aspects of the gospel. For example, I might know without a shadow of a doubt that paying tithing is a commandment that we are blessed for obeying. So I would have a strong testimony of that principle. Show more Show less
