Hi I'm Dave

I'm a Mormon. I was born in Tenn. and raised in Mich. Been married for 50 yrs, have 7 kids & 22 grandchildren. X vet.

About Me

Joined the Church in 1965 about a year after the Alaskan earthquake, which almost cost me my life. It was then that I started searching for a church to join. None of the churchs could answer my question with any logic, until a couple of young men came to our door. I am a proud father with 7 children and 22 grand children. I love fishing and golf and spending time with my beautiful wife of 50 yrs of marriage. Since retirement I restore older type VW's. I rebuild the engines, welding if needed.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because it changed my lifestyle from smoking, drinking and wanting to fight anyone & not worthy enough of a husband that my wife deserved. Every question I had about this life and the next life were answered. I contribute the success of my children's life's to their upbringing in the Church. Being an veteran of a forgein war and police officer before joining the Church, I had developed bad feelings toward the human race. I have a love for most everynow, but I confess that I love my family a litte bit more.

How I live my faith

I have served many callings in the Church and in our local community.. Have served as VP on school board .Coached wrestling and football at juniorand high school levels. I'm a faithful home teacher. I have served in the Bishopric and as a Branch President in two different areas. Whenever I have been asked to help anywhere, including local, I have always accepted the assignment.
