Hi I'm David

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in the northwest US with my wife of 34 years. We have 5 married children and 8 grand children. I enjoy my work in financial services as well as working in my pottery studio.

Why I am a Mormon

When something is important to you, you want to share it with others. The gospel of Jesus Christ and my family are the two most important parts of my life. Thru the gospel I can show my family how to live good lives and to be able to live forever together forever as a family.

How I live my faith

I try to live each day so that my family or others would be happy with the decisions I make. I have done many things in the church to help in any way I can. Being a Boy Scout Leader, helping the youth, is so critical to their development. Teaching others beyond just my family helps to bring more people to the gospel and can make the world a better place.

Can you tell me about Mormon customs: how you dress for church, what holidays you celebrate, etc.?

Members attending Sunday services will most likely be wearing their “Sunday best,” which may include suits, sport coats, and ties for the men and modest dresses or skirts for the women. Children also typically dress up for Sunday. Members of the Church celebrate Christmas and Easter, regarding these two events as the most spiritually significant days in history because of the birth, suffering, death, and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Church members also celebrate the regional and national holidays of the countries where they live. Church members also celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, and similar events. Show more Show less

Why do Mormons believe in the Bible?

The Holy Bible testifies of the divinity of Jesus Christ and has influenced and sustained millions of His followers. It is a collection of sacred writings containing God’s revelations and accounts of His dealings with His children in the Holy Land. The historical accounts in the Bible cover many centuries, from the time of Adam through the death of the Apostles. Likewise most of the books of the Bible were written by and about prophets who lived at various times in the history of the world. As you probably know, the Bible is divided into the Old Testament and the New Testament. The Old Testament contains sacred texts written prior to the birth of Christ. Many prophets in the Old Testament fortold the coming of a Savior and Redeemer (See Isaiah 7:14, 9:6, 53:3-7). The New Testament tells of the life of that Savior and Redeemer, who is Jesus Christ. It also tells of the establishment of His original Church. Show more Show less
