Hi I'm Dusty

I am an optometry student, father and husband. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an optometry student in PA right now. I am married with two beautiful children, a boy and a girl. I grew up in rural WY ( the whole state is rural...haha). I love the outdoors, and sports, especially basketball. I love spending time with my beautiful wife and children as much as possible, but life is pretty busy with school right now. I really enjoy music, playing guitars and singing good tunes.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Mormon faith. Generations before me were members of the Church, but that is not why I'm a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because through my own experiences and faith have come to know that this is Christ's church on the earth today. I know that He lives and loves us. I have come to know that He leads HIs church through living prophets, just like He always has done. I know these things because I have asked God, and He has answered. I know the Book of Mormon is true, the same way I know this church is true, I asked, and was answered.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best each day to live how I feel Heavenly Father wants me to live. I love God and do my best to love my neighbors. I serve in my local church as a mission leader. I try to coordinate the efforts of the local members and the missionaries to work together to find and teach those who are searching. I served as a full time missionary in Mexico. Most of all I try to show the Savior's love by serving those around me and following the same principles He taught. As my three year old daughter says when asked what Jesus teaches..."to be nice."
