Hi I'm Dallen

I work as a prosecutor. My kids are named after the legendary duo Jordan and Scottie. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father. Our kids are named after the Hall of Fame duo Jordan and Scottie and their jerseys have been raised to the rafters of our home. I love basketball, especially at 5:30 am every Saturday morning. I attended law school and now work as a prosecutor. While my professional responsibility is justice, the job has taught me a lot about mercy, forgiveness, and second chances. When I am not paying the bills, I enjoy playing the part of a sports columnist as I contribute weekly news articles in a fantasy football league. My wife and I are also a very formidable fooseball team. I have two brothers and then my parents divorced and remarried, resulting in another brother and three sisters. We get together weekly, whether it being going to lunch during the work day, playing basketball on the weekend, or taking Kung Fu lessons with cousin Bob. Growing up I was involved in scouting and like my dad, was able to achieve the rank of Eagle.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ has inspired within me a vision of who I want to be. While life is filled with a myriad of challenges, circumstances, and conditions, Jesus Christ has taught me what really matters, what really lasts, and what should truly be sought after. My family means everything to me and being a part of a family has helped me understand the purpose of life. I have a personal conviction of Jesus' love for me, our Heavenly Father's love for all of us, and the gospel is a constant reminder of both.

How I live my faith

Every week I attend church meetings and serve in the callings and responsibilities that are extended to me. I seek to pray often, both individually and with my family, and reflect on the blessings in my life. The scriptures help me remember all that God has done for mankind and how He is always there. One night each week, as a family, we strive to have a special family night, where we choose a gospel topic to discuss, sing some church songs, and play games.
