Hi I'm Don

I work as a banker and surf whenever I can. I have a 4 kids and a wife I adore. I am Mormon.

About Me

I'm a young father of 4 kids. I've been happily married to my wife for just over 10 years now. Everyday, I work as a VP at a bank to pay the bills. I love financem investing money, and I run a small investment company on the side. But deep down, I really prefer getting out with family and friends to surf, swim, and relax in the sun. I live in California which means I'm broke, but have plenty of options to spend my time! I've found that as my kids get older, I've been able to get outdoors all the more. It's been fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I genuinely believe the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I love reading the Old & New Testaments of the Bible. As I do, I feel like I know and appreciate my God better. It makes me a better and happier person. As I read the Book of Mormon, I get that same, subtle yet unmistakeable impression that I'm reading something holy. I cherish having scriptures in my life and I'm a member because I believe in the Book of Mormon. In the end, I want to return and live with God, and the scriptures provide the clearest path back.

How I live my faith

I spend a fair amount of my free time serving in youth programs. I teach 14-15 year old boys in Church every Sunday. Growing up, I had a series of good men work with me in the Boy Scouts program. They helped me reach the rank of Eagle. So I now spend each Wednesday evening working with the scouts. It's surprisingly fun, if you don't mind a bunch of boys making you feel like you are 60.
