Hi I'm Dallen

I am a small town boy from Southern Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a very small town near the very bottom of Utah. My family farms hay and cattle and also owns a small motel which gets its business from the tourists coming to see nearby Zion National Park, the Grand Canyon and other landmarks. I am grateful I live in such a beautiful area. I am currently a high school student. I am six foot three and play for my schools basketball team. My school is very small so I know everyone that goes there, and everyone in my town for that matter. Besides basketball, I enjoy working, and being outdoors and spending time with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a good family with righteous parents who were already members of the church. I owe a lot to my ancestors for their courage and giving me the gift that they have. I love being a member of this church because of the truths it teaches me and the blessings it brings to my life. I love the council that our prophet and apostles give to us. I love being different and having higher standards than the rest of the world. I have a testimony of Joseph Smith. I know he did what he said he did. I also have a testimony of the records he translated; The Book of Mormon. I have read it and I know that there is something different about it. I know that Joseph Smith could not have authored it, but that he translated it. I also have a testimony of Christ's Atonement. I am so grateful for the sacrifice he made for us. I know this church is true. It makes sense to me, and brings happiness to my life. That's why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

I live my faith as I give my time and service where I can. Sometimes I have the opportunity to bless the sacrament on Sunday. I think a great thing is the young mens activities we do every Tuesday. We split or haul wood for the elderly, do yard work for the disabled, pick up trash, help with a scouting eagle project that serves the community, or any number of other things. I love my young mens group because we are all friends and have fun together. Most importantly I live my faith as I try to follow the example of Jesus Christ. While striving to be like Him and come closer to Him, I want to be a good example to others so they can also come unto Him. I know that I fall short and make mistakes daily, but I am trying my best to become like Him day by day. I am now currently a full-time missionary. I am serving in the Mexico Cit South East Mission. My hope is to share with others the gospel of Jesus Christ and the happiness it brings.
