Hi I'm Darron Dowda

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a property manager. I grew up in Colorado and love the mountains. I married my junior high school sweetheart and we have two children. I have a deep appreciation for Native American heritage.

Why I am a Mormon

The missionaries found my family when I was 2 years old. My family joined the Church when I was around 3 years old. I gained my testimony at the age of 7 when I came to know the love of my Savior and the beauty of his Gospel. Throughout my life I have seen the Gospel in action and our Savior's servants bless my life. I felt so strongly about this message that I took 2 years of my life and served a mission in Great Britain so that I could share the joyful message of the Gospel with others. I strive each day to live as close to my Savior as I can, and do what I can to share His love and message with others.

How I live my faith

I had the opportunity to work as a family history consultant for 5-1/2 years. I enjoyed helping others to find their roots and to know where they came from. I have also been an assistant Scoutmaster and Merit Badge counselor, where I helped boys become the kind of young men that our world needs: honest, true, chaste, and kind. I also have an assignment to help care for four families in the congregation where I worship.

What do Mormons believe about family?

Darron Dowda
We believe that family is the foundation for happiness. The design of a family has its roots in eternity, in that we each chose to be part of a family prior to coming to this earth. While on this earth, the only true way back to our Heavenly Father is with our family. Show more Show less
