Hi I'm Dallin
I'm a ping pong enthusiast, a violinist, an engineer, a husband and father. I'm a Mormon.
I’m a devoted husband and proud father. Family is important to me. Dirty diapers fear me. I was taught from loving and hard-working parents to develop my talents and abilities. Being the youngest in the family, I was fortunate to watch and learn from my older siblings as one by one they ventured out into the world. In college I chose to study electrical engineering, following the path of my inspiring grandfather, and violin performance, because I’m a masochist. In my city, it’s practically a law to ride your bicycle to work; so I hum a happy tune and hope the passing motorists can see me atop my lime green bike - faithfully in operation since grade school.
Why I am a Mormon
I believe we are all children, sons and daughters of a loving Heavenly Father. I believe families can be together forever through Heavenly Father’s plan. The Gospel of Jesus Christ teaches me how to be a better father, husband and citizen in this great nation. I believe in the power of prayer and in receiving answers to my questions. I pray for my family that they might be watched over and protected. I also believe there is a prophet of the Lord on the Earth today. I pray for him to be strengthened and led by inspiration. I believe in the Bible and the Book of Mormon, to be the word of God given through His ancient prophets and apostles.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by striving to keep the two great commandments of the law as taught by the Savior: “…Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets," (Matthew 22:37-40). I love the words “with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” It reminds me of the phrase, Carpe Diem, popularly translated from Latin as “Seize the day.” The time we have in this life is so very short, and so it is incumbent upon me to do and be my very best, to serve God and my fellow man with all my heart, might, mind and strength. The satisfaction of knowing after a day’s work that I gave it my all is like eating manna from Heaven.
