Hi I'm Dusty

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, a father, and want to be a friend to anyone that needs a hand. Right now I'm studying to be a doctor. I love to spend time in the outdoors with my family doing things like camping, hiking, and riding my dirt bike. Life is sometimes crazy and hectic, but its all about the journey. I have come to know that if I always spend my life just waiting for the next big step (i.e. graduate from college, start a career, buy a new car) that I will spend my entire life waiting and that just doesn't make any sense. Life is a journey and I try to gratefully recognize every day for the marvelous gift that it is.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because it makes me happy. Isn't that exactly what everyone on this earth wants and seeks after, to be happy? There are way to many people in the world that are seeking for happiness in all the wrong places. Many people think that true happiness can be found in a successful career, fame and fortune, or physical pleasures. One of the great truths that the Mormon Church has taught me is that true and lasting eternal happiness is not found in the trivial pursuits of this world, those things always fade with time. True, eternal happiness is found in those things that can last forever: family, service to others, and character are the things that will endure. That's what the Mormon Church teaches and that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I want to do something with my life that will give me the opportunity to help others and relieve their burdens. I know what it is like to feel alone, lost, and scared and I seek for the chance to lift others and bring joy to their lives. I became a missionary when I was 19 years old and for two years I sought to share my faith with the people of New Jersey. It was an awesome opportunity that I am grateful I had. Now, as a husband and father, I do my best to guide myself and my family in a life that would be pleasing to Christ, our Savior. My Wife teaches some of the children where we attend church and I assist with planning lessons, meetings, and service among the men where I attend. I am grateful for the chance that I have to make a small difference in the lives of those around me.
