Hi I'm David

I'm a Mormon. I'm 78 years old and because I changed some bad habits of my youth, I'm in good physical condition.

About Me

 I'm a convert to the LDS Church in 1966. My wife Eula and I have five children, 15 Grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren. I retired from the USAF in 1971 and moved to Utah. We've had a wonderful life as members of the LDS Church. I was a very unlikely candidate for any religion being a heavy smoker and drinker. I've sure changed a lot certainly for the better. I believe my membership in the church had a great deal to do with my success in the business world. I've learned a lot about relations with people and through various leadership positions gained advancement quickly. 

Why I am a Mormon

 I discovered that the LDS Church met all of my needs. It has brought great happiness to me and my family. Really, everything about it makes a lot of sense.Someone once told us that even if it were proven false, it would be a wonderful way of life. I believe this to be a true statement. We have a close, loving family. When, we first investigated the church, I read so as to find fault to convince my wife not to become involved. It turned out that the more I read,, the more sense it made so I became a real believer.

How I live my faith

I love to serve others. I am serving my second time as a Bishop. It gives my wife and I great pleasure to help our friends and neighbors find peace and happiness. 

Why don’t women hold the priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? How do Mormon women lead in the Church?

Our Father in Heaven has given his daughters a greater role in shaping the lives of our children. Many have been selected as "National Mothers of the Year". They find time to lead out in the business world as well as heading up one of the largest women's organizations in the world. The Chruch Relief Society. Show more Show less

How can we come to know our Father in Heaven?

The best way to know our Father in Heaven is to study His life and teaching. I have found that I can just talk to him as if He were standing next to me and I would feel His presence. Show more Show less

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

Yes. It only makes sense that in a continually changing world, we need direction from a much wiser source. Besides, the scriptures say "Surely the Lord God will do nothing but he revealth hiss secret unto his servants the prophets" Amos 37 I don't think He is abandoning his children today.  Show more Show less
