Hi I'm David

I grew up in Colorado. My brother-in-law and I started a roofing company. I love seeing the world from the rooftops. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been blessed greatly in my life. I am a husband and a father to two grown sons. I spent over 20 years as an adult Boy Scout leader. I achieved the rank of Eagle Scout when I was 15 and have loved Scouting since my days as an 11-yr old Tenderfoot Scout. Lately, my days are filled with work. I love work and I love what I do. It is hard to find time for recreation when you own the company. My wife is helping me to find balance in life. When I do make the time, I love camping in the Colorado mountains, vacationing in Mexico, and bbq'ing in the back yard with family and friends. I also love cooking breakfast. My specialty is making freshly ground whole wheat pancakes or waffles, eggs made to order, bacon and/or sausage, homemade syrup, and freshly squeezed juices. My wife and I love going out for Sushi, Mexican, and Italian. One day I hope to serve with my wife on multiple Welfare missions for the Church. I would love to participate in the safe drinking water programs, training on how to garden and compost, and raising small game for meat and income. Helping someone achieve self-reliance would be most satisfying.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who love the gospel and have been faithful members. They taught me as a young child that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and wants me to have joy and happiness. They taught me about Jesus Christ and his atoning sacrifice that allows me to repent of my sins so that I can return back to my Heavenly Father. I love my parents and am grateful for all the lessons they taught me. As I continued to grow from a boy to a young man, my parents taught me how to recognize when I am being prompted or influenced by the Holy Ghost. It is through the Holy Ghost that I am able to learn the truth of all things. I remember when I was 15 years old, the youth in our area were invited to attend a Regional Youth Conference at Adams State College in Alamosa, CO and that at the Conference we would be able to hear from the Prophet, Pres. Spencer W. Kimball. I still remember as though it were yesterday, the excitement we all felt as we entered into the fieldhouse there at Adams State College. As is known, when you get approximately 1500 young men and women ranging in ages of 14 to 18, there is a lot of chatter that creates a lot of noise. All of a sudden, there came a hush over the crowd and as I turned to look, I felt this rush of wind blow right through me as I saw this man walking into the fieldhouse and to his seat at the stage. I knew at that moment that the Holy Ghost was witnessing to me that this man, Spencer W. Kimball, was the Prophet of God. As I listened to him speak that day, my testimony of latter-day Prophets grew. I have been blessed that from that day to today, I have felt the Holy Ghost bear witness to me of each successive Prophet. I testify that God speaks to us through his living Prophets. They are his mouthpiece. I know this to be true. Knowing this to be true gives me confidence that I will not be led astray by following the Prophet. I am grateful to God for my testimony of the restoration of the Lord's church and that I am a member of it.

How I live my faith

As the scriptures teach us, "by their fruits you shall know them," I have always wanted my fruits to be good. I know that by being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, many people are watching and observing what I do and the things that I say. With that said, in my business dealings I want to be a sincere and honest business man. Being in the roofing business, there are many who are not honest and have given our industry a bad name. I am grateful that people can tell the difference in working with me and our company. I learned a long time ago that "it is never too late to do the right thing." I would rather lose profit than to short change someone. I always stress that a good roofing system is not what you see but it is what you can't see that makes the system strong and long lasting. My language is always clean and respectful. I try to walk the talk as a true disciple of Jesus Christ. I love people! I take the opportunity to share the gospel of Jesus Christ when it presents itself. I can't imagine what my life would be like without it. Thereby I wish to share it with others so they can have joy in their life. In my Ward (Congregation), I have the opportunity to find those who have for one reason or another decided to not participate with the Church. I do not force my beliefs on anyone, I just want to love and befriend them. You can never have too many friends. I do not cast stones, I just reach out and give of myself to them through service. Many times I find that is all it takes to help someone reconnect with the Lord. My wife and I love to attend the temple. We find it a refuge from the outside world and a place where we can draw closer to our Father in Heaven as a couple. We are reminded as to where we need to prioritize our lives. It also allows us to recharge our spiritual batteries. I am grateful to have a wife who loves the Lord and wants to be an active participant in the Church. We strive daily to be good people.
