Hi I'm David

I was born in Hollywood. I can't help but think outside the box. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I retired recently after working many years as a insurance investigator specializing in organized crime. I am recently remarried, and when I retired my wife and I started doing some serious traveling, going to wonderful places in the world I've always wanted to visit. When I was working I often found great fulfillment in catching bad guys, but since retiring I've determined that playing is preferable.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been a Mormon. My parents were Mormons, their parents were Mormons, and their parents were Mormons too. So, being a Mormon is very much a part of my heritage and the way I was raised. Therefore, it is the environment where I am most comfortable. I like being comfortable, but we often have to make uncomfortable choices. I am still a Mormon because its teachings are consistent with my personal pillars.

How I live my faith

I've been in the church my entire life. I like to teach, so I have always gravitated toward teaching opportunities in the church. I especially love to teach from the scriptures. They are such an incredible resource of stories, history, significant characters, and invaluable instruction. We all need to have a basis for our faith, and that basis needs to be scripturally sound. For our beliefs to withstand the scrutiny attached living in our modern world then we need to back them up in scripture. I have my own personal pillars of faith that are scripturally sound. These are beliefs that I rely on and am committed to. They include the starting place for my faith (such as belief in God and that Jesus is the Christ) that I can always fall back on in times of trial or when I come up against questions I cannot answer. I am always true to my personal pillars.
