Hi I'm Dave
I served a 2 year mission in the Nebraska Omaha Mission, my ambitions are the medical field and to serve others. I am a Mormon.
I hit a few rough spots in my life including having many health problems. I have learned a whole lot about my love towards my family. Puting others first and foremost is most important. Gaining knowledge through daily study of the scriptures is a big part of my everyday life. I enjoy bike riding, roller blading as well as skateboarding and jump-roping. I have a passion for all music that uplifts and inspires. I lived in Germany, California, Arizona, Texas, Washington State, Tennessee, Nevada, Texas (again), Idaho, Iowa, and Nebraska. I miss all the friends I've made in each of those states. I feel life is fulfilled and complete when I go out and serve people any way I can. That's why I want to go to college and get my CNA then become an RN. I have gratitude towards my trials and tribulations because they helped to better my standing with God. I know that God is watching out for me every day and that is something that greatly influences the choices I make.
Why I am a Mormon
I am a Mormon because I chose to be. When I was 8, I was preparing to be baptized. I've always known there was something special about church and I knew it was the thing for me. My parents and church teachers have helped me to understand the fundamentals of the Gospel and I know it is right. I can't recall a time in my life when I didn't know the Church was true.
How I live my faith
I live my faith by applying the doctrines I learned at church and in my home into my everyday life. A scripture I like to review at times, "Man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart." I love applying that scripture into my life. I am a very empathetic person; I talk to a lot of people and help out any way I can. Finding the good in others is what each of us needs to do. That really helps me to love everyone I meet. I try to live my faith to the fullest. I obey the commandments of God as best I can, I heed the council of a modern-day prophet and I follow the promptings of the Spirit. "Church is my life!"-something I realize for myself at times.-but hey, it's true!
