Hi I'm David

I love long walks on the beach but as a missionary in Key West I take long walks when everyone else is at the beach. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm from good old Salt Lake City, Utah and guess what? I'm a Mormon! Anyone who knows me knows that I love music and food. Something I've realized is that I can't keep myself too far away from a piano or else I'll go insane. Same principle applies to an oven... After a long day, you could most likely find me with a cake in the oven, singing and tickling the ivory. Currently I'm serving as a full-time missionary in the Ft. Lauderdale, FL mission which has been the opportunity of a lifetime.

Why I am a Mormon

Having grown up in the church (both parents are members) it's easy to see why I'm a Mormon today. However there comes a point in everyone's life when they need to know of these things for themselves. This point came into my life a little while ago. Growing up in Utah there is sometimes a lot of pressure to serve a mission. As I was raised I was continually reminded that when I turn 19 years old, I will serve a mission. As I turned 16 I thought, "When I turn 19, I'll serve a mission." The same thought came when I turned 17, and 18... However as time came closer to 19 I questioned... "Am I really going to serve a mission?" I had to figure out for my self if this actually is the truth and whether or not I should dedicate 2 years of my life to this. I thought that this was true, but I didn't know it was true. I realized that I needed to know. As I prayed, asking to know, many trials came into my life. One of these trials was when my grandfather passed away. He was a big influence in my life and having him pass was tough for me to handle. As I prayed I came to know, during this trial, that the plan of salvation is real. As preparations were made for his funeral, the feelings that I felt most during this time was peace. I know that I will see my grandpa again and live with him along with the rest of my family. Because of this answer that I have received I have decided to dedicate 2 years of my life to help others to know. I know that this gospel blesses families. I know that because it has blessed mine. I know that this gospel has been restored and that the things that I teach others everyday are true. This is a gospel of peace and hope. I know that it is true.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith huh? Well I believe that the best way to teach others about what our values are all about is by living them. I live my faith by trying to be the best person that I can. Being a missionary of the church it is great being able to teach by my words but also with my example. I love being able to help other people know that they are sons and daughters of our Heavenly Father.
