Hi I'm Dallin

I'm a newly married college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a recently married college student studying Electrical Engineering and planning on going into Patent Law. I enjoy all sorts of things, but especially playing/watching football and basketball and also playing the piano.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that was already members of the church. During my childhood and teen years a lot of the time I found myself just going through the motions and not really thinking anything about the church or why I was doing the things I was. Eventually I got to the point where I felt like I needed to make a decision and find out for myself if I was really doing what I wanted to or just doing something because it was "tradition." I said a prayer one night after reading some of the Book of Mormon asking for God to show if the church was really true and if I was doing the right thing. That night I didn't receive an answer, nor have I had one of those single experiences that I can point to that says "this is it." But that doesn't mean I haven't received my answer. Through small and simple things, maybe a testimony I heard in church or a small scripture I happened to read in a time of need, my testimony has grown and I have found for myself that this church really is true. And that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have recently been called to help out the other husbands in my ward in both their spiritual and temporary needs. It's been such a great but humbling experience. There are so many great guys in my ward and I feel pretty insignificant, but I can feel the Lord watching over me and guiding my thoughts and actions every day. Aside from serving in my church calling I also just try my hardest to do the simple things that help remind me of God, for example scripture study or prayer with my wife or on my own.

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Dallin
I'm so grateful to know that I have the chance to live with my wife forever. It's such a sad thing to me to hear that some marriages only last until death. I'm so happy to not only know that if I live righteously I can not only live with my better half, but that I also have the chance to keep my whole family, including kids, together for all eternity.
