Hi I'm Dave

I Grew up in Gilbert, Arizona. I am a farmer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I ama husband, father, and a grandfather. I'm an outdoorsman and love nature. I am from Gilbert, Arizona born and raised. As a farmer, I love being among the crops which the Lord has provided for us. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a wonderful loving family. Six generation in the church. My family life revolved around the church activities, and farming. I grew up in Gilbert, Arizona. I am a 5th generation native of Arizona. I have always loved the outdoors, with hunting, fishing, and farming. I feel a closeness to the creations in the mountains and forrest. Along with my beautiful wife, we have 6 children , and 8 fun loving grandchildren. We find that the Church helps us raise our children with eternal goals in mind. With the help of the Lord we can make it through hard things. I am so thankful that I have this faith to hold on to, which gives me direction in my life. I am grateful that I belong to a Church that teaches me to Do unto others as I would have them do unto me. I believe in Jesus Christ. He is my Savior and Redeemer. As a Mormon I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints. My life is complete with the help of the Holy Ghost. I rely on it's prompting to help me make better decisions. I find joy in meeting other people all over the world, and seeing the good that's in them.

How I live my faith

I have always tried to live my live by faith in following the example of our Savior Jesus Christ. I am what I believe. I love all people, and enjoy meeting and talking with people. I am so grateful for my ancestors, and the heritage that they have given me. I love the stories of the past, and find ways to let their lives influence me for good. There is so much good in the world. I have loved working with the youth in our church, especially the Boy Scouts, and youth as they mature and learn about who they are and the role that Christ plays in their lives. I have taught many of the Boy Scout Merit badges to the young men. Horsemanship, Rifle shooting, and shotgun shooting are among a few. With my wife, we find great joy as we serve in teaching a Strengthening Marriage and Family class. This bring us closer together, as we help other couples learn about marriage and parenting. Life is not always easy, but my faith gives me hope and direction to know that the hard times will pass and good will always be waiting. I try to apply the Atonement of the Savior in my daily life, so I can be more like Him.
