Hi I'm Dwayne

I grew up in the oil patch of Alberta. I am a science teacher who enjoys photography, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a dad and husband, loving to be with my family, working and studying to have that happen more often in a few years. I love 3D animation and snowmobiling, photography, computers, and our dog (most days). I am a Chief Scout (Canada), and enjoy being outside when I can.

Why I am a Mormon

Because my parents decided that our family would get baptized when I was 13. Then, after going through seminary, serving a mission, and getting married in the Temple, I'm here to stay. I love the peace that comes with the gospel, and love the support group from the local members. I first truly felt like I knew the Book of Mormon was true when I was 19, before entering the Missionary Training Center - I received an amazing feeling and knowledge of it's truth. A Feeling I'll never forget or deny. I know that Jesus has sacrificed and paid for my sins and shortcomings, and that I am fully welcome to lean on him for strength and comfort every day as much as I need. And He gives it to me.

How I live my faith

Well, there's always room for improvement - but in serving in the ward in various callings, from teaching children, youth, and adults, as well as secretarial and leadership positions, has given me a broad view of the many opportunities to serve the Lord.
