Hi I'm David

I'm a father, husband, cyclist, angler, retired police officer, and now a lawyer. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I guess I like challenges. After 13 years as a police officer, I decided to go back to school to become a lawyer. A few months ago, I decided to take up cycling. I borrowed a road bicycle, began to ride, and now enjoy exploring the countryside around my home (I've only crashed once!). I like to fish (trout and striped bass are my favorites), hike, and watch movies with my family. You never know what's next!

Why I am a Mormon

My membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints means everything to me. It has changed me. I am kinder, more patient, a better husband and father, and more like my Savior because of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As I have tried to follow the teachings of Jesus, He has blessed me to become a better person. He has blessed me with understanding beyond my natural capacity. He has blessed me with comfort and wisdom in times of need. He has made it possible for me to overcome my sin and bad choices, and to move forward towards happiness with my family. He has given me hope-the hope that one day I will return to live with God and my family forever.

How I live my faith

As a Mormon, I have been blessed with many opportunities to serve. One of my favorite opportunities was as a teacher in a religion class called "Seminary". Where I live, each morning before school 14-18 year old members of the church gather to study the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It inspired me to see the dedication and devotion of teenagers as they arrived at 6:00 a.m. each school day to read the scriptures, pray, and discuss their feelings about God. It was a privilege to share with them the things I have learned about the Savior and his Church. I know that as we learn of the Savior, we are strengthened and blessed in our daily lives.
