Hi I'm Donald

I'm a Chiropractor, married and father of 3, and, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a chiropractor in California. I am married, have 3 grown kids, and no grandkids as of yet. I am looking forward to my kids getting married and starting their own families, so that we may enjoy the blessings of grandkids.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have prayed and received answers to my prayers regarding the Book of Mormon, prophets, and the need of being baptized. Having the gospel in my life brings me joy and happiness. I like to go to church, and help serve others. I know that through prayer, everyone can receive a witness pertaining to what they should do.

How I live my faith

My belief in God is not just on Sunday's. I believe that God wants us to be good examples, and one way is to strive to be a good person. I was taught that actions speak louder than words. I believe that the commandments were given to help us be better people, and to become more Christ-like. By no means am I perfect, and it is sometimes difficult to be obedient, but through prayer, most things become easier.

What is the First Vision?

Donald
In the 1800's a boy named Joseph Smith wanted to join a church. Since there were many churches around, he wasn't sure which church to join. He read in the Bible, James 1:5, which said if you don't know something, ask of God, or pray. He decided to pray and God and His Son, Jesus Christ appeared to him. That was called the First Vision.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Donald
When boys turn 19 they have the opportunity to go out into the world and be full time missionaries. Girls at age 21 may also become missionaries, and older couples when they retire. We want the whole world to know of Jesus Christ and the goodness that comes from living the gospel principles. Missionaries have the opportunity to go around the world testifying of these truths.
