Hi I'm David Drew Schilhabel

I am from Bakersfield CA, I LOVE playing sports, and I am mormon!

About Me

I'm 21, I served in the South Dakota Rapid City mission. I love sports and I love to give service. I plan to get married at some point in my life in a the house of the Lord and Im also a very big family man.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member because the gospel brings me true happens. The gospel is also very big on family's and I am a big family man. In 2010 my brother was in a ATV accident witch paralyzed him from the chest line down. My brother was an amazing athlete and played many sports. Two days before his accident he had the game of his life in football. After his accident I kept asking why couldn't that have happened to me why him. It was throw his faith in our Heavenly Father and his understanding of the gospel that put me pack on the right bath and also help me get throw his accident. After his accident I got on my knees and pleaded to my Heavenly Father to let me know if everything would be fine with my brother and also myself. I know have a solid testimony of this gospel. I know are Father in Heaven lives and knows each and everyone of us, I know that he knows our every wants and needs. I know how this gospel can change our lives for the better. I have seen it in my life and also others. I hope if you read this you will do as I did in time of need and find your knees and ask our Father in Heaven with faith if he is there as you do so I know he will answer you. This gospel has helped me in more ways than in one could ever imagine. I promise you that it is throw this church that you can have a better understanding of our Savior Jesus Christ and a greater relationship with God. If you dont believe me test it for yourself and let me know how it goes for you!! Much love Schilhabel Strong.

How I live my faith

I live my life just trying to be the best man I can be every day. I know that if I live what I am tought every day form this Gospel I will be a light unto all that I come in contact with.

What do Mormons believe about family?

I believe that families are a key part of this life. We are to learn and grow from each other and its only in this faith that we can always be together. Love you mom and dad! Show more Show less
