Hi I'm Don

I grew up in El Paso, TX and have been blessed with a beautiful wife and 6 great kids! I'm a Mormon!!

About Me

My family has become the most important thing in the world to me. I am a father of 6 and have been married to my beautiful wife for 28 years. I have been in the food sales industry working for large CPG companies my whole career. I love sports, hunting, and other activities I can do with my family. I love life and try to do something fun everyday. Life is great!!

Why I am a Mormon

Although I was raised in the church my conversion came over time as I tried many different paths and tested the principals I had been taught as a kid. I am a Mormon because I have built my testimony over time of the love my Savior Jesus Christ has for me. Through study of the gospel I have come to the understanding that my Heavenly Father loves me just as has loved all His children throughout time. He has promised He would always provide a prophet to guide and direct his work here on earth. I can see that I have received many blessings as I have worked hard each day to be a disciple of Jesus Christ. To see how I have been guided and protected strengthens my testimony of Jesus Christ and His church. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I learned early in life to provide service. My father always volunteered me for every service opportunity he could. Although I didn't like it so much at the time I learned the value and blessings that come from helping others. I now provide service because of the way in which it keeps me focused on the important things and not my problems. I serve my community as a member of the Lions Club. I also serve on the board of The 34 Foundation providing scholarships for local students heading off to college. I also serve in the church and love my interaction with the youth and young adults. Wow, the youth of the church today are so much better than I was when I was young. My current calling is on the High Council ans as a Home Teacher with my son. My service helps me to feel closer to my Heavenly Father and my dad here on earth. I hope my kids enjoy service with me as much as I do with them. I have a testimony of Jesus Christ and love to share it with all who want to know more. If you want to know how to give your life more meaning, contact a member of the church and find out just how much your Heavenly Father loves you!
