Hi I'm Darryl

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a married to a beautiful and talented wife and am the father of six children! I love my family very much and spend as much time with them as possible. In fact, I tell my friends my hobbies consist of whatever my kids are doing. They have a variety of interests, from music and drama to sports, which keeps my life very interesting. I spend my work time as an executive officer of a specialty pharmaceutical company. I was adopted by my parents as an infant and I am grateful to them for bringing me into their family. I know my life was forever changed for the better because a young woman had the courage to put aside her self interest by giving me a loving father and mother who could provide me with a stable upbringing, which would provide the foundation for my life today.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I know that I am a child of God, who loves me and all His children. Because God loves his children, he has provided a way for us to be with Him eternally, through His Son, Jesus Christ, as stated in John 3:16. I know that, as stated in John 3:5, we must be baptized and receive the Holy Ghost to return to God. I know that the authority, as given to men from Jesus Christ, to perform these and other sacred ordinances, has been restored to the earth in our day through Joseph Smith. I know this authority, or priesthood, is held in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I know that in holy temples around the world, ordinances are peformed to unite the human family with God our Eternal Father.

How I live my faith

I love the community where I live and am actively involved in coaching and supporting youth sports, music and drama. I serve in the church by assisting leaders in their ministry. I try to live my faith everyday by being honest and trying to treat others the way I would want to be treated.
