Hi I'm David McClure

I am a husband, landscape contractor, Scout Master, and professional snowmobile racer and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a landscape contractor and a professional snowmobile racer. I am a husband to a beautiful wife. I enjoy waterskiing, wakeboarding, hunting, fishing, fourwheeling, motorcycling, snowmobiling, and spending time with family. I am the Scout Master in our ward and 2nd counselor in the YM presidency.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon when I was 22 years old-I am now 25. I grew up goinf to the Presbyterian Church, my father was the minister of the Church in Pocatello, Idaho. I knew that there was a God, but I never fully understood the depth of his plan for me. In High School I had LDS friends, but I was never too interested in investigating the Church. While I was in High School-my Junior year-my older brother (who wasn't a member at the time) was playing football for Ricks College (BYU-I now). After playing football my brother moved to Swan Valley Idaho. He started dating a girl who was LDS and decided to investigate for himself. He decided to get baptized. I couldn't believe that my brother was making this decision, I thought it was a big mistake. I wanted to prove him wrong-so I started reading in the Bible and studying it. Then one night I came across the scripture in 2nd Corinthians where it was talking about Pauls Vision and the three degrees of heaven-and how he was caught up to the highest heaven. I thought to myself "maybe those Mormons' are right." I was dating a girl at this time who was a member of the Church-she gave me a Book of Mormon to study. I began to study for myself and took the missionary discussions. As I read this book I couldn't deny the feeling that I had to know that this was true. This is how I came to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am the Scout Master and 2nd Counselor in the Young Mens. Every Tuesday I go to the Church for mutual with the Young Men and Scouts. Our ward is pretty small so a lot of times we have group activities. Being a part of this calling it has taught me to be patient and loving no matter how hard the situation.
