Hi I'm Dallin

I'm a university student. I love politics. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am attending college now, studying international relations. I recently served a 2-year mission for my church in the Dominican Republic. I love college football, spending time in the outdoors, and politics.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up as a member of the Mormon church, but like every other member, I had to pray and ask God if what I was doing was correct. I read in the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ and prayed to know if it was true. By doing that and trying to live the principles of the gospel, I have come to know for myself that this message is true. God answers every sincere prayer, most often through our thoughts and feelings. When our mind and heart are in agreement with one another we can be sure that what we are doing is what God wants us to do.

How I live my faith

I recently served as a missionary for my church, spending 2 years in the Dominican Republic preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ to families and individuals. Now I have the opportunity of helping newly-called missionaries prepare for their own service. I try to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ because that is what makes me happy.

Are Mormons Christians?

Dallin
Absolutely. The actual name of the church is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Only Begotten Son of God, the Savior and Redeemer of the world. And we believe that He is the only way to happiness and eternal life. Jesus Christ is the center of everything we do and are. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Dallin
As a Mormon, I try to focus on living a life centered around Jesus Christ and His teachings. That, to me, means doing things like serving others, spending quality time with my family, and getting an education. It also means I don't do other things (drinking, smoking, etc.) that would keep me from accomplishing my goals and living my faith. What I've found is that trying to emulate Christ's example doesn't restrict my opportunities to live a full life; it expands them. Show more Show less
