Hi I'm Dallon

I love to play sports such as basketball. I'm getting a degree in chemical engineering. I like to dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm Going to college to become a chemical engineer. I like to solve problems. I have many different interests such as dancing, sports, and movies. I also love to read books. I will try anything once. I have always wanted to skydive. Running is an escape that I use to help me internalize my world.

Why I am a Mormon

The peace that is why I am a Mormon. There is great peace in knowing the purpose of this life and what will happen after that gives great peace. I love knowing that there is a loving Heavenly Father who cares about me and my life. He wants me to be the best I can be. Cliche I know but it is true.

How I live my faith

I am part of a young single adult ward. There are many activities. I am in charge of Family Home Evening basically I help plan and carry out an activity every Monday night. We do many different things from just socializing to going to an observatory to community service.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

Dallon
The proper authority to perform baptisms is very important because of the same reason that having authority to do anything it important. I like to share this example, if I was a lawyer I have the authority to represent people in the court of law. However if for example you were summoned to court and for one reason or another could not attend. If I went there and said I represent you and then did something horrible and lost your case and you had to pay a huge fine. I did this without your permission, meaning that because I didn't get your approval and the authority to represent you those fines mean nothing. I know this is probably not completely accurate when it comes to law but if someone tried to represent you without your permission you would not be happy and would not want to pay. The same thing with God he has given authority to certain people those people are the only ones who can perform baptism properly. Even if someone does the exact same thing it does not have the authority of God behind it. Show more Show less
