Hi I'm David

I'm a Mormon and I love my Savior Jesus Christ!

About Me

 I am currently attending law school. I grew up in Northern Los Angeles County, a place called Canyon Country, next to Six Flags Magic Mountain. I did my undergraduate and got a BS in Sociology. I am the youngest of five kids in my family and I am the only boy. I was raised in the church but was allowed to choose for myself and to learn and grow about the gospel. I have made a choice for myself to follow the teaching of the gospel and to center my life around Christ. I love anything to do with sports. I love all sports. I grew up playing basketball, soccer, baseball, and tennis. I also love to play football. I will play anything and also love the outdoors. One of my favorite places in Kolob, just outside Zions National Park which is in Southern Utah. There are so many amazing hikes at Zions and it is so beautiful there. I also love the beach and can sit at the beach for hours doing nothing at all times of the day. To me there is so much beauty in this world, it is nice to sit back and enjoy everything that has been created for us to enjoy. I also am a movie junky, I worked at a movie theater in high school and love movies. I also enjoy going to music concerts, I especially like going to shows at very small venues with bands that not many have heard of. Listening to live music is so much better than just hearing it on the radio or on your ipod. I love going out and trying new things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints true. I know that Jesus Christ is our Savior and through his eternal sacrifice he has atoned for our sins and that we can be made clean of our sins by repentance because of the atonement. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and through studying the words in the Book of Mormon I have gained a testimony of its truthfulness. I know that because the Book of Mormon is true and another testament of Christ then Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God and saw God the Father and his son Jesus Christ. That through a living prophet we are able to have constant and continual revelation from God to lead and direct his people. I know that it isn't easy to be a Mormon but that it is worth it. The knowledge and happiness that living the gospels teachings in my life has given me happiness that nothing else in the world can give me. The Church gives me guidance in my life and helps me to become a better person and more like Christ. I want to be an apostle of Jesus Christ in all that I do and by being a Mormon I am able to learn how I can become more like him. I know that life is not always easy but by asking of our Heavenly Father through continual prayer and scripture study, the answers will be made known to us. I love my church and my savior and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith by trying to be the best that I can be. We have been given so many blessings it is hard to not be grateful for what we have been given. The Lord knows we are all different and have different abilities and even though I do not have much time with going to law school full time I try and find time to be able to help those that are around me when possible. I have learned that serving those around you is something that helps not only those you are helping but also gives you a feeling of happiness that you know you are helping another. I try to be an example to those that are around me and look for opportunities to share the gospel with those around me. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has given me so much happiness I want to be able to share some of that happiness with those that do not have it in their lives.
