Hi I'm David R

I have been all over the US. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up travelling all over the country. My father served in the Army for a lot of my life, so we saw almost all of the United States. I have a goal to visit all 50 states, and I only need 3 more to make that goal. I am married and the father of a wonderful little boy, who has brought great joy into my life. I am attending college classes to earn a second bachelor's degree, so that I can enter the criminal justice field. I earned the rank of Eagle Scout many years ago, and have been glad for the experiences it granted me. I am an avid collector of historical firearms, and enjoy spending as much time with my family as I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised as a Mormon. My parents taught me good things, but they also taught me to find answers for myself. I have stayed a member of the Church because I have asked God if this is the truth. He has answered that question through the Holy Ghost, and I have chosen to follow what I have learned for myself. I served Heavenly Father as a missionary almost 10 years ago, and I am grateful for that experience, and for sharing the message with others.

How I live my faith

 I have recently worked as a teacher on Sundays for the 6-7 year old children. Currently, I teach 2 Sundays a month with the adult men in our congregation. I am grateful to be able to learn from them as I teach, as we all have different insights and life experiences.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

David R
I know that there is a prophet on the earth today. He is called of God, just as Moses was in ancient times. He doesn't carry a staff and wear a robe, but he does hear God, and tells us what we need to hear in order to obey the commandements, and survive in our crazy world. This man is Thomas S. Monson, and when he speaks, I know it is the message that God wants us to know. Show more Show less
