Hi I'm Dale

I am a native of Arizona, I'm a husband a father and a grandfather. I am also a lawyer and a former Judge and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband a father and a grandfather. I am a lawyer by trade. I am presently a public defender in a small rural county. I love sports and being with my family. I have two grandsons that are the blessing of long days and short nights raising my own children. Being a grandfather is wonderful. I enjoy helping people, especially those who have trouble and who need a friend when no one else seems to care. I suppose that is why I enjoy being a public defender as it allows me to work with people who feel lost and alone.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Book of Mormon and it changed my life. It was like no other experience I have ever had. A great light filled my soul and I knew and know that it is the word of God. I served a mission for two years away from my family and saw others find that light that comes from reading the Book of Mormon. I believe the heavens are open, that God does speak to his children through a living prophet and that the Lords church is on the earth today and it is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

How I live my faith

I am presently serving as a Bishop. It is a calling similar to a priest or pastor. I serve voluntarily and receive no payment for this service. I serve approximately 420 members of a ward. I spend a great deal of time with the youth in helping them to grow strong and healthy in testimony and faith. I seek out the poor and the needy and work to help them become self sufficient. I am a disciple of Christ and teach and testify of His goodness and mercy and that He loves and cares for every person on earth.
