Hi I'm David

I work for a Senator, am a HOA President, teach a religion class to a group of 20 high school kids at 6:20 a.m., and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a busy person, but I manage to have fun. I love to hike, fish, and play sports like volleyball and basketball. I love Star Trek! I also care a great deal about my family, my State, and my Country. I am married. My wife and I have yet to be blessed with kids so we're waiting. In the meanwhile, my wife and I work for different parts of the State Legislature. We both see our jobs as making a difference. We have a cat, named CocoaPuff. She's getting older but is our kid for the present. We take very good care of her. If she wasn't a one-house cat (she'll attack any other animal we bring into the house), we'd make sure she had plenty of company. I love raising my blueberries, raspberries, and other crops in our garden and eating them throughout the summer. Life is good.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because God let me know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is where he wants me to be. He touched my heart with knowledge that the Book of Mormon is true and that there are living prophets on the earth today. He blessed me with an assurance that Joseph Smith was indeed a prophet. I know that I am a son of God, and, as one of his children, am eligible to receive eternal life if I can manage to do all that Heavenly Father commands.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to practice it the best way that I can. I have multiple assignments in my Church. My wife and I try to increase the faith of the youth by teaching a religion course at 6:20 a.m. every school day to a group of about 20 awesome high school students. I live my faith by trying to obey all of Heavenly Father's commandments and fulfilling my other duties in the Church such as planning and coordinating baptisms for the Tumwater-Olympia Area. I try to incorporate into all the different facets of my life what I learn at Church and in personal scripture study.
