Hi I'm David

I grew up in Idaho. Music is my life! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old. I am currently attending college. I am majoring in Physiology and Developmental Biology, and hope to go to medical school in the future! I love to play music. I am in the drumline, and love it! I play the piano and love to sing! I love to read when I have time, but if you've been in college, you know about how much free time there is for fun reading! I have a twin sister and we're really close.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace that the teachings in this church brings to my life. Everyone is searching for peace, and this is what has brought the most to me! I have seen how living by the commandments given to us from a Loving Heavenly Father has blessed me! I have also seen how my life changes when I don't follow them. I have seen this gospel change so many peoples lives! It truly is amazing! It first changed mine when I was about 16 years old. I had been praying to know if this was true for quite some time, but hadn't received an answer. Later, I was having a conversation with a friend about the church, and had to defend some of the things that I believed. Then it hit me. I didn't just believe these things, I KNEW them! I knew they were true! I know that God loves all of His children! I know that we have a loving Savior who paved a way for us to return to our Father. I know He paid the price for my sins, and that because of Him, I can be forgiven! Jesus Christ is my Redeemer, and without Him, I would be so lost! I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ appeared to Joseph Smith, and called him to be a latter day Prophet, just like Moses or Noah from the Old Testament. I know we have a Prophet on the Earth today! President Thomas S. Monson truly talks to our Heavenly Father! The Book of Mormon is true! I dear friend of mine once told me "its not JUST another testament of Jesus Christ; Its the BEST testament of Jesus Christ!" I have come to see that! I love to study it along with the Bible, because I gain so much from both, and understand so much more as I do!

How I live my faith

I serve on the activities committee in my ward! I help plan fun activities to help take the stress out of the college work load. I also look for opportunities everyday to serve those around me, because that was what the Savior did!
