Hi I'm David

I am a Canadian, I love to play guitar, I am a financial advisor, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a small town of 2000 people in Canada and the only time I really left was going on a mission. I served a mission 15 hours south of the border in Salt Lake CIty Utah Mission. Those two years serving the people there were some of the greatest in my life. I finished a Bachelors in Psychology and have kinda been unsure totally of what I wanted to do. I love psychology and have spent a lot of time working with disabled children. Right now I am a financial advisor educating families on how to get out and stay out of debt!! I love teaching families and when I am not I am playing guitar, reading, hangin out with my wife or playing squash and rock climbing, I also love to do family history work and travel the world... I am a mormon!!!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church! Both sides of my family go back to the time of Joseph Smith as members of the church. My distant grandfather accepted the gospel and came across the plains to Utah! I have studied much in the religions of the world and have always kept my mind open. But, one thing that has kept my testimony strong is answers to my prayers. I have prayed for guidance from God and I know that his church has been restored on the earth today, This truth fills my heart with light!!

How I live my faith

Right now I my wife and I just moved so we don't have callings in our ward right now. But in our past ward my calling was to be a Ward Mission Leader, I organized the missionary work of the ward, worked with missionaries in teaching and baptising people into the church, it is a great joy to see peoples lives changed and made better through the Gospel of Jesus Christ. My wife and I love to be apart of our community and helping where possible!! I live my Faith by striving to treat others with love and respect and serving where possible. This past week our church just in our city raised 71,000 lbs of food for the food bank.. that is how we serve in our city!!

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

David
The Lord from the beginning of time has loved his children on earth so much so he has always called prophets to teach us about the plan of salvation and how to be happy. He called Adam, Noah, Moses and many others. Eventually he called Jesus Christ our Savior to come to the earth, he suffered and died for us that we can be forgiven of our sins and return to God some day, he also organized his church called twelve apostles and giving them the authority of the priesthood to go forth and teach the gospel. But the people rebelled and the world fell into an apostasy, which means the fullness of the gospel was not on the earth. There are many churchs on the earth today and all have truth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the the Lords church, the same church that Jesus had on the earth, once again restored in its fullness with priesthood and 12 apostles. The Lord restored it through the prophet Joseph Smith. Today we have a prophet, even Thomas S. Monson. Show more Show less
