Hi I'm David J.

I love to travel, meet new people, and see new places. I love to laugh and make new friends. I love my life and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My hobbies include traveling, exploring, and being in nature where I can freely see the beauty of the world. I love to play sports, write, read, listen to music, and spend time with my family and friends. I am the second oldest of four boys in my family. I am currently in college, planning on doing something with Geology once I graduate, and I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a Latter Day Saint! I have found that nothing brings me as much joy in my life as finding harmony with the will that my Savior has for me, and trying to live my life in such a way that I can follow his teachings. I have seen many blessings come into my life as I have tried to follow the example that he left for us, and I have seen how my friends and family have been blessed by trying to live in the same way. I know that this church, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, is true, I don't need some sort of great sign to know more surely that it is true than I know it is now. I have found the sweetest happiness in coming to know my Savior and sharing what I know with others. This church is true and I know that anyone looking to sincerely find out if it is true can come to a knowledge for themselves whether it is true or not.

How I live my faith

I have set apart two years of my life to share with others what I know to be true. I would not spend two years of my life, without being able to see my family, living in a new place, and learning a new language, if I didn't know with all of my heart that this church is true. I participate in the community by involving myself in service groups, working to build up the community one step at a time.

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

David J.
Yes! We believe that God has called a prophet to lead His church here on Earth at these times, just as he did with His people in times past. Just as in times past, God has prepared a prophet for us at this time so that we can properly be brought to a knowledge of what God wants for us. We believe that God will always communicate His word through the prophet that His people need in order to continually be guided. The prophet who leads His church at this time is Thomas S. Monson.
