Hi I'm David

I grew up in Arizona. I Love to play tennis and workout. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of six. My mom was a stay at home mom, a little bit like the clevers. I grew up playing little league baseball and we always had a football game with all the neighborhood kids. When I grew up there was no such thing as computers and the internet. You could play pinball machines but it would take a lot of money to play for very long. We just created our own fun. Ramps to jump off of with our bikes, spokes with playing cards for a noisy ride, etc. Back then parents helped each other raise the kids in the neighborhood not defend their childrens poor behavior. We had chores every saturday, seems our parents could always find things that needed to be done. I believe my dad changed the yard many times so that I would have work every saturday. We would drink out of the hose, no such thing as bottled water. Teachers could swat at school but didn't have to very often. Respect for your elders was expected and generally given. Our neighbors looked out for us and we returned the favor, you knew who everyone was on the block. It was generally a really nice place to grow up in Arizona.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a mormon household. I enjoy the people that I associate with and the feelings I have while attending church and listening to the talks that are given. I believe what is being taught at church. I served a mission in Chile and loved the time I spent there. I would have returned home and finished college had that belief not been profound or if I didn't think that I could make a differnce in someone else's life. I am raising my children to be mormons as well. I love my children unconditionally. One of my children isn't participating in the mormon religion and it is his choice. I hope all my children live happy and productive lifes.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good citizen in the community. That may sound corny but I really do appreciate all that our forefathers did for us. They sacrificed everything including their lifes so that we could have the freedoms that we do have today. I just finished reading about pow camps in Japan during WWII. So many people gave all and suffered tremendously. I have tried to give back by being my sons soccer coach and being a scoutmaster as well. I am involved in my kids lives and talk to them all the time. I can't wait to be a grandpa but everyting in it's due time!
