Hi I'm David

I'm a Mormon. After serving nearly 32 years in the Marine Corps, I've retired and live in Texas.

About Me

After my father graduated from BYU, we moved to Ohio where I grew up. When I was 16 we moved to Argentina for 3 years, where I attend high school. Once I completed school, I joined the Marine Corps and flew KC-130's as a navigator. After 32 years of service I've retired and now live with my wife and son in Texas. After all these years, I'm still a big fan of the Ohio State Buckeyes, but I must admit that the San Antonio Spurs are growing on me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but it wasn't until much later that I actually gained my own personal testimony of the truth and became converted. I've had the great opportunity to travel throughout the world. I've been to almost every country and seen first hand the handiwork, beauty and love of the Lord. I've come to realize that we are all children of our Heavenly Father and that He loves each one of us, personally and individually. Like Peter says in Acts 10:34 "...Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:" I know that if we will read the scriptures and follow the words of the living prophet today, all mankind can be saved and return again to their heavenly home and parents.

How I live my faith

I try each day to focus on the seemly small, simple things of life. To remember to pray and thank my Heavenly Father for all he has done for me. To honor and respect my wife. To try and be as forgiving of others as I hope the Lord may be with me. To remember to treat others as I wish to be treated. To help those less fortunate than myself. To remember the love of my family and those who are counting on me. To never forget who I am or where I came from. To honor my father and mother and the great heritage they gave me.
