Hi I'm David

I am the third oldest of six children. I grew up in Idaho. I am a professional chef and own my own catreing business and mormon.

About Me

I was born in wyoming and raised in a very small town in central idaho. I was raised in the lds church. I served a mission to Dallas Texas and upon returning went to culinary school at boise state. I have worked in this field for 25 years and own a catering business. Being raised in Idaho I love to fish and hunt. I have been married for 19 years and have four children two boys and two girls.

Why I am a Mormon

I was rasied in the LDS church but like many who are had to come to a knowlege of the trueth of it for myself. I have great and loveing parents who have taught me the diffrence between what is right and wrong and nobel in this world. We all at some time in our lives have to make a choice for ourselves as to which direction we will go. I decided to serve a missioin for the church and was called to the Texas Dallas Mission. This is what instilled in me the knowlege and understanding of the Savior Jesus Christ as my personal Savior and this is when I felt the Holy Spirit confirm this trueth unto me. I am now trying to be the kind of father that my father was and raise my four children to be good people and to be kind and loving to all. I know the LDS church to be true as sure as I live. The Priesthood power that my father holds saved my life when I was born and it has been a blessing to me my whole life. I know that God lives and Jesus is his holy Son. I know all this to be true.

How I live my faith

I am not a perfect person and have many weeknesses. I do try to be a good person, friend and father to by children. I have served in may callings in the church including missionay, teacher, young mens leader and others. All these callings have given me a chance to tough the lives of people and it has also given me a change to be touched by the spirit. I the live the faith by doing what I think the Savior would have me do. By being kind to all I meet and try to help when I can and try to keep the commandments of God. I think this is all that we can do and the rest is up to the murcy of the Savior Jesus Christ.

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

The missionaries save up their own money and then pay their own way. They also purchas their own clothing and other items needed to serve. In all a mission may cost up to $12,000 dollars but it is something that is did and would do again. I hope to serve a mission with my wife in the future. Show more Show less
