Hi I'm Dwayne

I'm a Dentist, brother, father, husband and a friend. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I enjoy being in the outdoors and enjoying our beautiful earth. I like to garden and dabble with plants. I try my hand with technology and like to stay connected with family and friends. I enjoy my children and watching them grown and progress and I enjoy spending time with my wife. We all have been blessed as we have volunteered in many parts of the world to provide humanitarian service mainly in relieving dental pain and suffering.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have received the answers to the important questions of life through my faith in Jesus Christ. His church provides the framework and structure to give us direction and helps all of us know about our purpose here in this life and also what will happen to all of us after we leave this life. I have had many personal experiences with life and death that have allowed me to see God's Hand and know of His desires for each one of us.

How I live my faith

I live my faith on a daily basis by trying to live as Christ would want me to live. I try to be honest, kind, caring and compassionate in all phases of my life. I have been blessed with a wonderful legacy of faith from many previous generations of those who also have lived their lives and faith daily, and this has been passed on to me. I currently serve the Spanish speaking members in our congregation and receive great joy from this service. Not only are they benefited and blessed, but I am rewarded as well and try to improve my Spanish to serve even more effectively.

What are some of the ways that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints helps those around the world?

The Church helps in many Humanitarian projects throughout the world. Our family has had first hand experience with providing assistance in clean water projects, construction projects after earthquakes and other natural disasters, and we have been able to work in many dental clinics as well in many countries.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

The Word of Wisdom is a guide for healthy living that was revealed through a modern day prophet. We believe that our bodies are indeed the "Temple of God" and should be taken care of. We avoid substances that are harmful to our bodies: coffee, tea, alcohol and drugs. We also try to follow guidelines that allow us to enjoy healthy living. Even though the Word of Wisdom was given in the early 1800's, medical and scientific research has eventually found that the principles in the Word of Wisdom have a sound basis of truth.
