Hi I'm Dustin

I'm a father, I speak Chinese, I work in the optical industry, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I work in customer service at an optical lab, answering questions and assisting doctors and opticians with issues related to the manufacture of eyeglass lenses. I love learning more every day about optics and sharing that knowledge with others. I've been married for two and a half years to a beautiful woman who loves to have fun, and I'm the father of two pretty little girls. I like ballroom dancing, 80's music, and watching movies that make you think. I lived in Taiwan for two years, serving and helping the people there, and I learned to speak Mandarin Chinese fluently. I love learning about everything from economics to history to science to cultural studies.

Why I am a Mormon

Though I was raised in a Mormon family, there came a point in my life that I needed to discover whether or not I really believed the things I had been taught. I kneeled and asked God directly if the Book of Mormon was true, and if this church was his church. I know he answered me, and I know the Book of Mormon contains his word. What I really love about this gospel now is that it is so personal. Everyone can learn of the truth of God's love and the reality that his church has been brought back to the earth today. There is a prophet on the earth today, as in biblical times, as well as apostles. No one has to believe me or anyone else when we say this is true because every person can find out for his or her self. God, also known as our Father in Heaven wants to know and help all of his children, and all we have to do is ask, and he'll confirm that he's there.

How I live my faith

My life would probably seem very normal to most people. I don't do a few things that some people not of my faith may do, such as drink coffee, smoke, drink alcohol, or shop on Sundays. I go to church every week, which is a rare thing these days. But I get up each morning and go to work, I have happy times and I have frustrating times, I struggle to make sure my family's needs are met
