Hi I'm Donny

I'm an MBA student, aerospace professional, husband, dad, and sports fan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a husband and father to two young boys, a supply chain professional in the aerospace industry, and an MBA student.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to a Mormon family and was raised in the church. My parents were (and are) excellent examples of how to lead a family and teach children to be good people. When they recognize a need they volunteer to take care of it - however inconvenient, and often place the needs of others before their own. My upbringing gave me a strong foundation in the church because I saw the strength that the church and its teachings brought to our family. My family experience notwithstanding, I am not a Mormon exclusively because I was raised in the church. I have had many opportunities to study, teach, experience, and test the doctrines of this church. I have thoughtfully read the Book of Mormon for myself and have paid close attention to how I felt as I read it. I have prayed about it and have received answers to those prayers. I have no doubt whatsoever that it is true, and that its words were written by prophets who were inspired by God. I have experienced the difference in my life when I closely follow the teachings of the church compared to when I am more lackadaisical about my faith. I have listened to many arguments against this church and have found them to be strikingly similar to the arguments made against Jesus Christ in biblical times. The more I have learned the doctrines of the church, the more I have grown in my belief that they are true.

How I live my faith

To me, living my faith comes down to the small choices I make each day. I try to teach my kids not only what is right, but why that is right. I try to be accountable for my mistakes and learn from them. I give my employer an honest effort and look for ways I can help them achieve their goals. I work to be known as someone who is honest, has no hidden agenda, and is willing to help others when they need it. As with most other members of our church, I have roles to fill in the local congregation. Currently I assist with youth programs and visit several local families to ensure their needs are met as part of my church duties.
