Hi I'm David Clark

I grew up in Nebraska. I am passionate about healthcare and creating a better world for all of us. I am a Mormon.

About Me

In July of 2011, I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Healthcare Administration. Graduation was both a time of excitement and discouragement: exciting to accomplish a goal, and discouraging because I could not find employment. Somehow, my wife and I were able to survive on odd jobs and our savings. We decided to apply to grad schools to further my education and increase my marketability. My wife just completed her Bachelor's degree and I will begin grad school in August at the Ohio State University!

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ affects every aspect of my life: my work, my study, my recreation, and my time with my family. The gospel helps me to better understand better who I am and who I have the potential to become. As I do all in my ability to live the gospel standards, my life is filled with a peace I have not been able to find any other place.

How I live my faith

Every day is a new opportunity to serve. To serve a friend, or someone whom I've not yet met. Looking for a chance to help someone brings joy to my life and gives me a sense of purpose. Service does not have to be something big or time consuming, the small moments or gentle encouragements help to lift someone who is struggling.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

David Clark
Serving a mission is not a requirement to be a part of the Church. It is something many do, because we would like to share with others the joy which can be found through living the gospel. As we serve missions, we are blessed with experiences which help us to better understand the gospel, and to become men and women who are better able to meet the many challenges which come throughout our lives.
