Hi I'm Dave

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 21 year old college student currently serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Utah. The youngest of three, I'm supposedly the most spoiled, but I know THAT isn't true. I'm an avid reader, lettered and starred in swimming in high school and graduated from the Theatre Program. I love adventure but I'm kinda shy until I get to know everyone around me. I always love a good laugh and spending time with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon beause of my belief in God and Jesus Christ, and that they're active, living beings in my life. I've seen a difference in the happiness that I have that lasts forever. I'm not the kind of person who "lives for the moment" but that I live for the future. My beliefs in who and I and where I came from have found root in the Gospel of Jesus Christ as taught by Christ's Restored Church. I know that being "Mormon" is what I am, and it's who I'll always be.

How I live my faith

I live my faith currently be being a full-time minister of Jesus Christ. That means to represent him 24/7 in thought, word and deed as his servant, as his missionary. My full-time service away from home will end though. And at that time I will return to my life before and go back to being just a normal person on the street living my faith. I tend to express my belief in the things I avoid doing, such as drinking, smoking and swearing. Just these three things tend to set me apart from the "norm" of society and cause many people to actually look at me and ask, "Why?". And my simple reply is, "Because I'm Mormon". But it truly goes deeper than that. I live the way I do because I know that it's the way that God has set before me, and that he's happy when I live according to HIS will, not my own. I live my faith by being a true, living follower of my Savior Jesus Christ.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Dave
Yes I do. But it's not just something I believe, it's something I know. God as let us know through his Holy Word (ie.scriptures) that he will always call a prophet to help us and guide us. Prophets have been spokes-persons for God since the beginning of time, from Adam down to Jesus Christ. And he has again called prophets to testify of him. They are guides to let us know the will of God, to protect us from physical, AND spiritual danger. Show more Show less
