Hi I'm Dave

I am happily married and have five beautiful children. I'm on the faculty at Purdue, I have a dog named Gus and I am a Mormon.

About Me

I get large amounts of satisfaction from just being around people. I am a people person, you could say. I work at a large midwestern university and I get to travel around the state doing trainings on personal finance education. I am what some would call a family economist. I believe that decisions made at the household level can influence for good or bad the way we all collectively behave financially. I recently moved into a modest sized home with a nice, manageable yard and mortgage. I have been unemployed before and I know how difficult it can be to wonder how the bills will get paid. Encouraging others to save for a rainy day, avoid unnecessary debt and prepare for life after employment is my passion and thankfully my career!

Why I am a Mormon

I love knowledge, I crave it. As a Mormon I have an unlimited supply of Spiritual knowledge available to me and it's the kind of knowledge that no one can take away. No one can disprove my theory, or challenge my assumptions because it's not my theory and there are no assumptions. It's God's Plan. It is perfect and I love that! That's why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my Faith very openly and love to have discussions about the church and my beliefs as often as possible. I try to make no distinction between myself and my Faith! Sure, I have my ups and downs like everyone else, but in the end it is knowing that I have a Celestial and Royal heritage that keeps a smile on my face and a fire burning inside. I wish I could shout from the rooftops how pleased I am to be a member of this church and to have access to all of the truth, blessings and knowledge that come with that membership. I am devoted to my assignments in the church and am always willing to serve wherever The Lord needs me!
