Hi I'm David Ruth

I grew up in Burbank, California. I am the product of a part-member family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband to a wonderful woman and a father of two great kids. My son is currently serving a mission for our church in the Great Tennessee Knoxville Mission. I work as a Principal at a middle school. I enjoy golfing, water sports, and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a member of the Mormon Church by my mom and dad. Even though my dad is not a member of the Church, he has always respected and supported my beliefs. He encouraged me to serve a mission, which I did, and I appreciate him for his support. I am a Mormon because I love my Savior. He is my Rock and my Redeemer. I look to Him for answers to questions in my life and have found those answers as a member of the church which bears His name.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Sunday School teacher for the youth in the Southport Branch. I love my calling and see the blessings that have come from serving in the Church. It is a joy to see the lives of people change as they come unto the Savior and have their hearts turned to Him. Service in the Church builds my faith and strengthens my testimony.
