Hi I'm David

I grew up in California. I am a sports official. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I am a huge sports fan. I will watch any sport that I can watch. As a sports fan I spend a lot of time officiating sports. I officiate basketball and volleyball. Although I do get paid for doing that, it is more of a hobby than anything else. I love to spend time with my family and love to hike. I am a Dad of three wonderful children. It's good to know that they love me and I love them. It is a joy to serve others and show them the joy in helping others. Another thing that gives me joy is helping people with their financial decisions. I love to see people retire and to know that I helped them in that process.

Why I am a Mormon

Joy. That is how I sum it up. Joy. I love the gospel because it teaches us that we can become whole (saved) again through Jesus Christ. His power is infinite and will help us get through even the toughest things that we go through. There are parts of my past that were dark and that I am not proud of. But through the atonement of Jesus Christ, that past no longer bothers me. For he has promised that sins that are as scarlet will be white again. And that "he that repented of his sins, the same is forgiven, and I, the Lord, remember them no more." What a promise!!! God can heal and does heal. I look forward to the day where I can see him again. Also I love the promise that I can be together with my family forever. They are the joy in my life. It would not be heaven without them!!! What a joy that will be. Besides those two things, there is also the opportunity to serve, to have fellowship and to enjoy the people around me. I respect and admire other religious people. I invite them to bring the good that they have and come and get more!!!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving others. That is what Jesus Christ taught. I visit those in need and look for an opportunity to serve them. The greatest people I serve is my family. I live my faith by teaching others the awesome power that Jesus Christ has to cleanse us and to help us live again. That is the greatest thing that I can show and teach people. I live my faith also being an example to others. They can see the love that I have for Heavenly Father and his Son Jesus Christ.
