Hi I'm Dallin.

I grew up in Washington State, served a mission in Brazil and go to BYU. I love movies, movies scores, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Dallin. I was born and raised in Southeastern Washington and have lived there all my life. In 2007, I went on my mission to Northern Brazil where I spent two great years of my life. I came home in 2009 and a few weeks later went off to school at BYU-Idaho. In 2012 I moved to Utah to go to school at BYU and study Human Resources. I have the best job where I get to work with all types of different people and businesses as an HR Assistant. Even though I love my job, my real passion is in movies. I love watching movies and listening to their soundtracks, a movie can mean so much more if you truly understand the feeling that the soundtrack is trying to demonstrate. One of my favorite things to do is go on walks at night and listen to me movie soundtracks. Some of my favorites come from "Man of Steel", the Dark Knight Trilogy, and just about anything from Hans Zimmer.

Why I am a Mormon

I am Mormon and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints because I choose to be. Growing up in the church, I always knew that it was true, but I gained a real testimony for myself on my mission in Brazil. I was able to experience life as I never had and needed to rely on the Lord to know if what I was teaching people was really true; I wanted to know for myself. Through that experience, like so many others, I was able to know that this is the one true church on the earth and that we are lead by a loving prophet today, just like in biblical times.I love my family and friends and the strength that they give me every day. I have a testimony that Jesus is the Christ and that by Him and through Him, we can return and live with God again. I know that repentance and the Atonement of Jesus Christ is something that we all need and that nothing is too big or too hard for Christ to help us with. I love this Gospel, my Savior and my Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

One way I live my faith is by reading the words of the prophets in the scriptures and applying them to my life now. I love how prophets in both the Bible and Book of Mormon truly knew the struggles that we would go through in our days and gave us so many lessons to overcome our trials. I have gained a testimony about opposition in all things and how it is so important for us to sometimes pass through sorrow and sin so that we can experience joy and true happiness. Through the atonement of Jesus Christ, and the things we read about in the scriptures, I know that we can all be perfected in Christ and return to live with our loving Heavenly Father.
