Hi I'm JD

I'm a dentist at a community health clinic. I love being outdoors, reading and playing sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up all over the country. I've lived in Wyoming, Utah, Ohio, Florida, North Carolina, New York and now Colorado. I love to take road trips and see new things, people and places. I think that moving around so much has given me a great perspective of others and so I tend to be a compassionate person who (sometimes to my detriment) sees both sides of a situation.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by parents who were LDS, but there came a time when I had to find out for myself. As I went through the process of finding out I came to see that my life was better because of my church and its teachings. Today, I find great support not only socially, but spiritually from being a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I've always enjoyed serving others, and that's a big part of being a Mormon. I currently serve in the church's Boy Scouts program - I work with the 11year-old scouts. It's great getting to see these boys grow and mature into young men. I also have a responsibility to look out for and help a few families in our church. In the past this has involved everything from helping to paint a house to helping with a plate of cookies (I'm pretty good at chocolate chip).

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

JD
I heard a lecture on this years ago where the speaker asked how Noah knew what to do about the coming flood. He received revelation for his own time; there wasn't anything in the writings of previous prophets that said he'd need to build an ark. Our day is no different. While there are many wonderful and useful things in the scriptures that help me everyday, there are many things that we need a prophet's guidance for in our day and time. My life has been blesed because of the counsel from modern prophets and because I have listened, had faith, and followed. Show more Show less
