Hi I'm Dallas Bullock

I am a proud father of four, I am an avid participant in action sports, I love live music and yes I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been riding bikes since I was 4 years old. I am an avid mountain biker, snowboarder, wakeboarder or anything around water or in the outdoors and love to do all of these activities with my family. I've lived all over the US but consider the Inter-mountain West home. I recently competed in my first triathlon last year. I am a proud father of four wonderful, healthy , active children and have been married for about 14 years. We love to be active in our neighborhood and the community. Ive been selling IT solutions into the Public Sector for well over a decade and consider it a privilege to be involved with those that provide those public services. I spent a good amount of time moving around while growing up, but consider that a blessing as I have friends all over the country. In my travels with work I love the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and learn so much from the various perspectives that we all experience in life. This world is full of so much greatness and goodness and I am grateful everyday to experience it.

Why I am a Mormon

My conversion to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints came after many years of having really nothing to do with church. Though I grew up in a household that practiced the LDS faith. I exercised my ability to choose and choose to live a life quite contrary to this faith. After many years of struggling with unsupportive friends, addictions, and not progressing at all, I hit rock bottom. I'll never forget the day I called my Dad and said to him that I wasn't in a very good place and I had nowhere to go. My parents welcomed me home and it was there in that peaceful home that I began the long process of finding out what I really wanted in life and what really made me happy not only short term but long term. This long process had many starts and stops along the way, but in time through the help of a few friends who were ready to make those changes in their lives. We worked together to support our joint efforts to get our lives back on track. I distinctly remember the first time going back to church, I was very nervous that I would see people who knew where I had been over the past years and it would be awkward to explain why I was there. That immediately went away as I walked in and was welcomed with open arms to people who showed me genuine love. It was like a reunion of sorts. Every song sung that day, every word said penetrated me in a way I could not have imagined. God's Spirit was there in abundance! In fact after feeling so dull for years, I was in essence feeling alive again it was the beginning of a new life. I do not regret those challenging years and even those choices. They have given me a perspective and a love for all of God's children, regardless of what they look like or were they've been. Jesus Christ's Atonement has changed me and continues to change me to this day. . I will love him forever for this and sing praises for eternity as a sign of my devotion to him. Christ lives, may we ever call on his atoning power to heal us.

How I live my faith

I currently assist in coordinating the volunteer efforts at the local Bishop Storehouse. The bishop's storehouse is a network of Church-owned and -operated commodity resource centers that function much like retail stores, with the major difference that goods cannot be purchased but are given to needy individuals whom local LDS bishops work with to determine the need of the individual our family. Recipients are invited to work or render service in various ways in exchange for goods to avoid allowing the goods given to be a form of dole. The storehouse stocks basic food and essential household items, produced largely from Church agricultural properties, canneries, and light manufacturing operations. The entire system, where practical, is vertically integrated, from farming and harvesting through processing and distributing. All work is performed by Church volunteers and recipients and is largely independent of the commercial economy. The contribution of time, talents, and resources of the membership of the Church in various areas sustains the storehouse. I am also a home teacher to two wonderful families in the area. We meet monthly in their home to discuss the gospel and be of assistance to the head of the household in providing for their spiritual and temporal welfare. I have had the opportunity to serve those within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and those not of our faith in many different capacities. These opportunities have brought great blessings in to my life and allowed me to forget about myself and focus on the well being of others. It is so true that when we lose ourselves in the work of others , we truly finds ourselves.
