Hi I'm Dave

I'm a counselor. I'm an outdoor enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Dave. My wife and I enjoy spending time with our dogs and traveling. I am a counselor and have found working with young people to be very rewarding.

Why I am a Mormon

As a teenager, it entered my mind that I needed to test the faith which I had learned since my infancy. So I sat down to read the Book of Mormon to read it for the first time cover to cover. I read quickly. After a day or two, I read the account of a people in 3rd Nephi who lived during the time of Christ's earthly mission. The story of the signs of his birth, death, and visit to the American continent was more vivid than any account I had ever read. At that moment I prayed to know if the book was true and the Spirit touched my thoughts with such clarity that I can not deny it. From that time my testimony has grown as I have seen how merciful the Savior has been with me as I have strived to follow His word. He has greatly blessed and enriched my life in ways too numerous to mention. I strive to live in a way that I can have His spirit with me.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by following the example of the Savior. I try to love my neighbors and help those in need. I try to share my faith through a Sunday School class with youth. I feel it is a great responsibility and privilege to help other build their testimonies.

What do Mormons believe about family?

We believe that families are the single most important social structure in the world today. We believe that God works to strengthen families. We believe that family units are eternal. After this life we will be able to return and live with our loved ones eternally. Because the family unit is eternal it is very important that he work now to build strong family relationships.

Are Mormons Christians?

Mormons are disciples Jesus Christ. When we are baptized we take upon ourselves His name. Each week, we make covenants to remember and follow the Savior. I love learning about the Savior's life in the Book of Mormon and the Bible. Show more Show less
