Hi I'm Dave

I was born in Canada and I run the state of Washington for Aflac. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Canada, raised in Utah. I played football and love to play all sports, ski, basketball, hunting. I served a mission a bit later than the typical Utah mormon and went when I was 21. I served in South Carolina. I have been married to my beautiful wife for over 14 years and we have 4 cool kids! I have been working with Aflac for 10+ years and have moved from Oregon, to Utah to Arkansas, Idaho and now I run the State of Washington for Aflac. I love to be active especially since i lost over 100lbs.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and was baptized at 8. I went to seminary and though I was always active I never really had a testimony. It was not that I didn't believe, more like I didn't want to have a testimony of my own because then I would be responsible to live the gospel. I strayed a bit from from the teachings of the church after high school. At age 21 I decided to really call on God and ask if the church was true. I received my answer and it was like taking off blinders. I read the Book of Mormon began to study the church and it was all new to me even though I had been a member my whole life. It was so exciting to me to know that I really do have a Father in Heaven and that he loves me like any father would his child. I decided to serve a mission and I was called to serve in Columbia South Carolina. I met my wife and we were sealed in the Portland Temple. God has blessed me and my family and I am grateful to be a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I have had many opportunities to serve in my faith and in the community. I run a business and get a chance to work with many people but the time i get to teach the youth in the church is mot cherished. I have had the opportunity to work with the youth of the church in 4 states and it is the most fulfilling.
