Hi I'm Dallas Bedford

I'm a video gamer, an avid learner, I love to make people laugh, I'm 6'6" and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've lived in Utah my whole life but I have done lots of traveling. I've been to half of the states and Mexico and New Zealand. My father is a Kiwi (Native new zealander) and my mother is from Utah. I have an awesome older sister who is shorter than me and it's awesome. I'm currently serving a mission in the great Columbus Ohio. I love to play video games. I love playing League of Legends, Halo, Modern Warfare and fun stuff like that. I'm love to play Magic: The Gathering card game. I love to go outside and play some sports. I love hanging out with friends and making people laugh and having a good time. I love to learn about anything and everything I can. I'll learn anything I can and do my best to keep learning and growing. I'm an avid band nerd. I love playing the piano in my spare time. I love most styles of music except Heavy Metal, and Rap that swears. I love my Savior with all my heart and I know He loves me too. I have a firm testimony of the Gospel and it's effects in everyone's life. I've been able to witness this as a missionary. It's a great feeling to see the love of the Savior touch and help change people's lives and they come closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon, not only because I was born in the church, but because I've found out for myself that this is the true church of God. I have gained my own testimony of the truthfulness of this for myself and not for anyone else. I have learn through experience that this is the way to real happiness. I have yet to find anything even close to the happiness that is brought about by the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being an example to all those around me. I do those things that the Savior would have me do. I go to church. I'm currently on a mission to show the world this faith and to help others gain such faith

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Dallas Bedford
When Jesus Christ came to earth, He set up the Gospel of Jesus Christ and with it, the proper authority to perform the ordinances such as baptism. Over time, people killed Him and His apostle so the proper authority was lost to perform those ordinances. With the restoration, The Gospel of Jesus Christ was brought back to its simplicity and the Authority was brought back to make it possible to return to live with God, our Heavenly Father.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Dallas Bedford
The Family is the most important unit in all of time. The family is there to help everyone to grow and come closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ. The home is the first church and the first school and if God really meant for us to do this challenge called life by ourselves, there wouldn't be anyone else around us. society as a whole would not function without the family in place. Families are one of our greatest assets in this life. Show more Show less
