Hi I'm David

I love to ski, I love music, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

My name is david. i grew up in SLC, Utah and i love spending time with my family. they are the most important part of my life. i grew up with a love for the outdoors. i love to ski, mountain bike and basically do anything outdoors. it is a time where i can think and ponder about the things that are going on in my life and ponder and marvel on the creations that God has made for us.. i love music, going to concerts and hanging out with my brothers. i am in the sigma chi fraternity that is very diverse. i love the diversity and having great friends that come from every walk of life.

Why I am a Mormon

There are a lot of reasons why i am a mormon. In the church of jesus christ of latter day saints we beleive that families are eternal. That right there is one of the biggest reasons why i am a mormon. I am so grateful for the gospel of jesus christ and the opportunity we have to live again with our heavenly father and with our families for eternity if we keep the commandments and make promises with our Heavenly Father. I grew up in The church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints but didnt always know it was true. although my parents raised me in the church i still needed to find out for myself if the things that i was taught are true. i didnt know until my late teens for a surety that the church and its teachings were true. in my teens i was living my life in a way that was not how i should or could have been living. i wasn't happy and i wasnt sure exactly were to find that happiness that i was searching for. i started to attend church again and started reading from the book of mormon. i knelt down and asked God in sincere prayer to know if the church was true. i asked specifically to know if the book of mormon was true, if joseph smith really was a prophet. i knew if those things were true then this is the true church. i asked in faith and i received an answer. i recieved an answer by the power of the holy ghost. i know that the church of jesus christ of latter day saints is the lords kingdom once again established on the earth and through the teachings of the gospel, we can know exactly how we can return to live with our loving heavenly father again. i am so grateful for my savior jesus christ and the suffering and sacrifice that he went through to take away the sins of the world. i am so grateful for the opportunity to repent of our short comings and to have the opportunity to return to the presence of our heavenly father and live with our families after this life!

How I live my faith

how i live my fatih is by doing the best i can to help others in times of need and others that are less fortunate. i love to do service. by doing service and helping others it helps me see that the problems that i may be going through are nothing compared to the problems that people around the world are going through and how big of a need i have to help those brothers and sisters in need. i am currently on a mission in fort lauderdale, florida where i have the opportunity to go out every day and help those in need and to help those searching for happiness, find that happiness. i have not experienced greater joy then the joy that comes from helping those in need.

What is the Law of Chastity?

David
Our Father in Heaven has commanded that the sacred power and privilege of sexual relations be exercised only between a man and woman who are legally married. This is the law of chastity. It means that we must not have sexual relations before we are married, and after we are married we should have sexual relations only with our husband or wife. Show more Show less
