Hi I'm Dustin

I am a soon-to-be Missionary, Harry Potter Obsessed, and an Outdoor Lover, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

What's shakin' bacon? :) My name is Dustin and I am nineteen years old. I live in a small town in the White Mountains of Arizona called Eagar. I enjoy playing every kind of sport but my favorites are basketball and softball. Even though it sounds nerdy, I love to read and learn new things.My absolute favorite is Harry Potter, its everyone's favorite isn't it? I come from a family with five children and am the second oldest. My family and friends are very important to me and I am so blessed to have them. I'm going to Chile soon to serve a mission and help share the happiness I have with others around the world. Wish me luck!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the LDS church for several reasons. First of all, it brings me happiness. Through the church I can live good standards that keep me safe, healthy, and happy. Second, family is a big part of this church and my family is everything to me. I hope to be together as a family forever and someday have a family of my own. Third, there is always more to learn and grow from. There are always new experiences and new people that help me branch out and explore new things. I know through this church that I can be with my family forever, be forgiven of anything I do wrong, and stay happy even when things get hard. I always have help, all I have to do is ask. Happiness comes for those who believe in the Savior, Jesus Christ. When I have him on my team,I know I can't lose. Having this gospel in my life helps me to see that, and lets menrealize the many blessings I have in store for me if I choose to obtain them.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. On Sundays I attend a Single's Ward here in my hometown and try my best to be an example and help others. During the week, I consistently look for ways to serve and better someone's day,you never know when it might make a difference. My friends are a big influence on me and I know I wouldn't be where I am today without them. It is these friends that inspire me to do good, be happy, and always do my best.They are serving missions in every corner of the world as well from Belize to Korea to Tonga. Another thing I think is important is making the right decision even when it is a hard thing to do.Sometimes we don't see the benefit of a choice right away but I know that it will work out in the future even if it doesn't seem to be working out right now. If you stay to the course, you will end up in the right direction!
