Hi I'm Dave

I live for adventure. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and a Father of four. I work hard for my family and embrace the adventures these responsibilities bring. I enjoy playing board games, reading to my children and making my wife laugh. In my free time I enjoy reading World History and tinkering with science. I tend to get teased because I would rather watch Mythbusters then the Superbowl.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because every week on Sunday I am reminded of why I am here, where I am going and what I need to do to get there and I believe it. Every week there is heartache, sadness and disappointment all around me. I find Jesus Christ to be a beacon of light by providing direction and stability. I keep coming back for more and when I am empty I drag my self in and fill up. I believe it and have felt it to be true. Harmony can exist in everyone’s life despite every sad turn and let down. Jesus Christ can provide a constant and sure hand rail. If we can just reach out and grip that rail with all our might even till our knuckles are white. Then reach back and grab someone you love and show them how to grab the rail. I believe we are all from the same Heavenly Father and our communities will have more harmony and service to one another if we study and apply the attributes of Jesus Christ. This, is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by encouraging others to be a friend to everyone and attend Church and worship God and Jesus Christ. With fellow adventurers in the Boy Scouts of America I teach boys how to develop good behaviors and attributes. To love God, Self and Country. When I discover someone who is down and out, I embrace them in there sorrows and then offer help.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Through heart felt sincere prayer. Prayer is how I discovered this is the Church where I need to be. No one convinced me, no one pulled a rabbit out of a hat. I was encouraged to pray and so I did. As I continue to pray today for strength and guidance I can truly say Heavenly Father answers prayers. I need to do my part through reading scripture and thinking about what I read and then ask Heavenly Father through prayer. If you want to know if Mormonism is true, then ask. Show more Show less
