Hi I'm David

I grew up in Seattle, I am a fourth generation plumber, I love dirt biking, shooting, but especially my wife. (-: I am a Mormon

About Me

In order of most important... First I'm a husband, I love my wife. We have been married for almost 25 years and I enjoy being with her as much as I can... I am a father. We have 3 children, 2 girls with a son in-between. Our eldest is married now, our son has just graduated high school and the youngest is a high school volley-ball player. I pay for all these peoples excistance, and my own, by being a plumber. I learned from my father,in fact I am the fourth generation plumber in my family. Great grandpa started his career in 1890, and yes there was plumbing back then.... (-: I have owned my own company for a number of years now, and enjoy working with my hands and using what little brains I have to provide a good service to my comunity. My Dad will tell you I'm the best plumber in state, but what Dad wouldn't... My hobbies are dirt biking, scuba divivg, and shooting. however you will mostly find me mowing the lawn, cleaning up the garage, or doing the honey-do list. Who has time to do the fun stuff, right???

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of my sisters friend. She invited her to an activty for kids and liked it so much that she went again!! My parents were curious as to what she was doing and hearing there so they asked to learn about it. you'll have seen Mormon missionaries before, well we saw them also when they came to our house. the rest, as they say, is history. I've been a part of this church for over 35 years now, and I wouldn't want it any other way. There is a sense of belonging to something in this church, it feels good. The people become like a big extended family. It's fun to see them, not only on Sunday, but other days as well. People in the church are also great givers. People are willing to help out, be it a moving party or a shoulder to cry on... Not that I cry or anything... They are also quite good at helping devour an apple pie or two when given the chance. The beliefs of this church are very simple, faith, repentance, baptism... there are many other words I could use to describe this church but the best ones I can use are these. God is there, He is our Heavenly Father, He loves us and wants all the best for us. What Father wouldn't? He sent His Son, our Brother, to show us how to live. There are many that would lead us astray, the world is full of bad stuff right? But it's also full of good. This church is good, in fact it's the best!! I believe it's the true church, the one Jesus set up when He was here. Back then there were prophets and apostles. Christ's church was removed from men during the dark ages, thats why it was so dark, but it's here now. Restored through a young boy named Joseph Smith, you may have heard of him. he became God's prophet. The world needs a prorhet. thats how God operates, He did it back in the day, why not now...??? Look into it. Ask someone you know that is a Mormon, they will be happy to answer any questions you have. listen to your heart when they tell you about it, don't be surprised when it feels good inside...

How I live my faith

All members of this church pitch in and help. some teach sunday school, or lead music, play the organ or lead a group of kids on an activity. I was asked to be the scout master for a couple of years. At first I didn't enjoy it, but then I grew to love it!! everyone gets to participate in the church, no one is thought of as more important than another, someone could be the Bishop one week and then the churh librarian the next... I've been the teacher for teenagers Sunday school, church missionary, leader of the younger adult mens group and then helped the leader of the old mens group. The old guys are fun to be around, they have cool stories... I've even taught the little kids how to sing church songs like "Jesus Wants Me For A Sun Beam" , "I Am A Child Of God"' and "Popcorn Poping On An Apricot Tree". I loved doing that. Serving other is where it's at! If you feel down, serve. you will feel better. It'sa fact!!!
