Hi I'm Dave Woods

I enjoy my family, traveling, hiking, biking, and working in my specialty as an eye surgeon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to read, learn, hike, bike, and be with my family. I am an eye doctor and like to improve vision through the application of technology. I love Jesus Christ and have faith in Him as the Savior of the world.

Why I am a Mormon

At the age of 15 years old, I earnestly sought answers from God about His existence and His will for me in my life. As I found answers I recognized the influence of the Holy Ghost leading me to feel and be closer to Heavenly Father. I know He loves me and loves each of His children deeply, more than we can ever imagine. It is this knowledge that propels me to share His truths with those I care about, so that we may return to live with Him again after this life, and find greater joy in this life.

How I live my faith

I live the gospel to the best of my ability in my daily life. My wife and children and I attend church meetings on Sunday and live lives of honesty, goodness, and seeking to follow the example of Jesus Christ.

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

Dave Woods
Through scripture reading and prayer we can personally feel and invite Heavenly Fathers influence in our life. He will inspire us to do good to others, forgive others, and follow the example of Jesus Christ in our daily lives. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saaints was organized by the Lord to help us find His truths. Show more Show less

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Dave Woods
I served a mission in Argentina for 2 years. Missionaries answer questions and teach others about the church. My mother helped support me financially on my mission and I will always be grateful to her for her sacrifice and values she taught me. By putting others first, she showed me how missionary work blesses others lives and blessed my life.  Show more Show less
