Hi I'm Dave

I'm a father of 4, a Physical Therapist, and a follower of Christ. I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a father of 4 and love to spend time with my growing family; they mean everything to me. I'm also a Physical Therapist with a passion for helping others recover from various injuries and diseases.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up with a limited view on what Christianity was all about. As a young boy I attended Church service twice a year - Easter Sunday and Christmas. As I grew older I began participating in sports and was often busy playing in "important" tournaments on Sundays. As a young man I began to doubt whether Jesus even existed, and did not see the importance of religion. When I was about 20 years old I was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I attended a few Church services and was asked to read the Book of Mormon. At first I resisted. However, after a particularly difficult day, I remembered having received the Book of Mormon. Intrigued, I opened its pages and began to read. My mind was put at ease, and a feeling of peace and joy ensued. Needless to say I read voraciously, and desired to learn more. By simply reading the Book of Mormon I came away feeling uplifted and at peace, something I had never before experienced. I also came to know that Jesus was and is real, and that He hears and answers prayers. From that point on my life had meaning and direction. I joined the Church less than 4 months later, and I have been richly blessed since making that eternally "important" decision. The Book of Mormon changed my life, and I promise you, if you read with an open and sincere heart, it will change yours too.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by being an "example of the believer". I read the scriptures and pray every day not because I want to prove to others my devotion to Christ, but because without doing so I feel myself drift from His Holy presence. Jesus Christ means everything to me, and I try to so live so that when I am brought before Him I will hear Him say, "well done thou good and faithful servant".
