Hi I'm Dave

I'm a husband, a father, an outdoorsman and a Mormon.

About Me

I'm happily married and the father of four beautiful children. I enjoy running, hiking, backpacking, camping, fishing, hunting and almost anything outdoors. I've found that my greatest joy comes from serving and helping others. When I'm serving I feel like I'm truly doing something important and making a difference.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormon) because I believe that God loves his children as much today as he did in ancient times. For this reason I believe God continues to speak to Prophets who help us to understand God's will and follow his teachings. I believe that God will also inspire and speak to us as individuals to help us to know the truth through the Holy Ghost. In the Church of Jesus Christ we know that God has restored the fulness of his ancient Gospel and that he continues to love and guide us through prophets just as he did in ancient times. I know through prayer and through the Holy Ghost that these things are true, and that all people can know of God's love and can be blessed to embrace his restored gospel.

How I live my faith

Being a Mormon gives me many opportunities to serve. I have the great opportunity to work with the Young Men of the church by serving as their Scoutmaster. Our church based scout troop carries out our scout activities with a special focus on helping these young men to grow closer to God. We do this through serving others, sharing experiences and testimonies, and giving the young men opportunities to teach lessons and give talks in church and camp settings. It's in serving that I find true happiness and what's most important in life becomes clear - We are all here to help each other through the trials, temptations and difficulties of life. At home, we meet together as a family every morning to read the scriptures and pray. We dedicate each Monday evening as family night where we learn about the Gospel, pray together and play together. We try to practice our religion at home and encourage each family member to be there best at all times and in all places. I believe it is my ultimate responsibility to teach my children how to serve, love and find joy in blessing the lives of others. If I can succeed at this I know my children will be happy, and will avoid the many pitfalls that they will face as they grow older.
