Hi I'm David Patrick Molloy

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from Irish/Hungarian descent. Both sides of my family were recent immigrants to America. I have a wonderful wife, and five great children. Although I'm retired, I still work part time as an entertainer. My main interests include music and art and keeping my wife happy. I lived in Las Vegas from 1945 to 1954, then my family moved to Newfoundland where I spent my early teen years. Later we moved to Colorado Springs and then on to Torrance, California where I graduated from North High School. I started my college career at UC-Davis, later attended El Camino college and Long Beach State. Worked in the advertising field and aerospace industry for several years, then took a job with a multinational engineering company and with in a few years was assigned to work for a few years in Spain. Later I was assigned to work at a jobsite near Augusta Georgia. Returned to California in 1983.

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church in 1963. David O. MacKay was the prophet, there were 3.3 million members of the Church. A lot has happened in my life since then. When I first heard about Joseph Smith and the first vision, I knew it was true. I thought that the Plan of Salvation made more sense than anything I'd heard. To me it was like a web of truths so perfectly knit together that each and every thread, perfectly placed, all essential to the completion of the whole structure. I grew to love and honor Joseph Smith and those who stood by him and those who had the courage to carry on the restoration. I am at peace with what I believe. I feel as though I know who I am and what my potential is. I know that I'm on the right path. My wife and I were sealed in the Hawaiian temple in 1964. Having an eternal perspective has helped us in build our strong marriage. I have been very blessed to have had a wonderful, happy life. I know that I am a child of God, that my Father in Heaven is real, that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that if I'm true and faithful, I'll realize the blessing of eternal life with my eternal companion.

How I live my faith

Currently, my wife and I are serving as part-time service missionaries assigned to the local Institute in our area. We have been helping start up of the BYU-Idaho Pathway Program.
