Hi I'm Dave

I’m a husband, father, Boy Scoutmaster, Financial Advisor, and I’m a Mormon.

About Me

I’ve been married to my wonderful wife for 15 years. We have 7 children ranging between the ages of 1 and 14. I enjoy spending time with them. We enjoy the outdoors, travel, vacationing, biking, boating, and taking family walks. My wife and I try to maintain a home of peace, love, and protection.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the LDS faith my entire life. I was blessed to be raised in a home were Christian values were consistently taught with clarity and conviction. My parents exemplified Christ like love between each other and those around them. I also felt like their lives had true meaning and purpose. They would regularly encourage me to pray and discover for myself of the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. As I began to study the scriptures, fast, pray, and focus on spiritual things I began to feel peace and comfort. Through this personal study and prayer I received my own testimony of the doctrines within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This conversion occurred in my mid-teenage years. I then had a desire to share my beliefs about the Savior and devote a few years of my life serving as a full-time missionary. I try my best each day to live a more Christ like life and share these beliefs with others. I have also found the joy and happiness of serving others. The teachings of service, family, morality, love, and honesty have blessed my life tremendously.

How I live my faith

Each early morning I begin my day with a personal prayer. I first express gratitude for the many blessings I’ve been given. I then ask for help and assistance with the daily challenges of life. I then study a short gospel related message or scripture with my wife. We then call the entire family together for scripture study and prayer. This is followed by a short gospel discussion. We feel like this early morning start is vital for each other and our children enabling us to battle the challenges of everyday life. We also devote one evening a week for family time. We usually rotate assignments ranging from prayer, song, message, activity, and treat. It brings me joy to see the family grow together and form bonds of love. As a family we also regularly discuss those family members or friends that are struggling with a trial or challenge and how we can help them. This usually involves a friendly phone call, letter, or visit. As I try to live in faith, rather than fear, my belief in my Heavenly Father grows which than enables me to have true meaning and purpose to my everyday living.
