Hi I'm David

I'm a Mormon

About Me

I have a wonderful wife and four great children, living the good life in Durham. I enjoy running, snow skiing and golf, as well as spectator sports. I hike and camp, and being a native Westerner have a great love of the outdoors. I appreciate being part of the Durham community, and participating in service and community projects to make it an even better place to live. My profession involves working as a consultant to healthcare provider organizations, where I see committed service to local communities and those in need.

Why I am a Mormon

I have had the great privilege of being a life-long member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My parents brought me to church every Sunday and taught me that I am a child of God, that mortality is a key part of Heavenly Father's plan for mydevelopment, and that I have a Savior, Jesus Christ, who atoned for my sins. I am proud of my Mormon heritage, and have an abiding testimony that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth for the benefit of all men and women. I have witnessed in my own life the power of the Atonement of Jesus Christ, and know that it makes good men better, and great men even greater.

How I live my faith

My church responsibilities have been a blessing to me, as I have been greatly involved with helping the youth to develop testimonies of Jesus Christ as our Savior and learn of their potential as God's children. My assignments as a home teacher over the years has been a great pleasure, as I get to visit wonderful people in their homes each month, and be inspired by their faith, courage and strength. One memorable experience in 2005 involved organizing and leading a group to Hattiesburg, Mississippi to help clean up after Hurricane Katrina. I will never forget the spirit of love that our congregation expressed in serving strangers who were in great need of timely assistance.
