Hi I'm David

I was born in Claifornia, but grew up in Utah. I love to sing, act, and to all around just have a good time. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

For me, I wasn't good at a lot of stuff. I had tried out for everything and pretty much failed. Then I auditioned for a play in Jr High and fell in love with it. I moved on through school to do many different plays and musicals and even though I wasn't always the lead character, I had the most fun being around my friends and being able to pretend to be someone else for a while. I love to do all sorts of things! I enjoy sports, reading, doodling, singing, acting, and learning. I do enjoy camping the most I would say. I find that being in the woods, away from civilization and being able to listen to nature and gaze at the beauty of the world are the times when I come to appreciate life most. I absolutely love to rock climb, even though I'm pretty much terrified of heights. I love to swim and see how long I can hold my breath for. I enjoy playing around with my nephews and nieces and my dog. I love my family most of all.

Why I am a Mormon

The main reason I would say I am a Mormon is because I was raised in the church. Now that doesn't mean I didn't have to come to my own conclusions about everything. I wasn't going to let my relationship with God be solely based on something that someone else had told me. I had to gain my own knowledge of the truth. As any person does, I came to a point in my life where I really didn't know what church was true. I questioned the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I always remembered, though, what James 1:5 says. "If any of you lack wisdom let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not and it shall be given him." I took that challenge and turned it to God. There is no question in my mind that this church is the true church of Jesus Christ. It is where He want's us to be and where we can best grow our relationship with our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

Right now I'm living my faith by serving a full time mission. I am going out and preaching the message of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ to those in Missouri. I am striving to be better at this calling by giving everyone a chance to hear that message so that they can come to know the blessings that can come from living it. I am also giving service to all who need it. I am here to help and I always pray that as I go out, the Lord will bless me with the strength, courage, and love to keep going.
