Hi I'm Dallin

I grew up in Utah. I love to help and serve all around me. I am a mormon.

About Me

I love history. I have read lots of books about it and I love to learn about the past. Because I really like the past I took up fencing and trained a lot of my friends how to fence. I love to do sports such as football, basketball, and others with my friends. I also love to do things with my hands like creating model boats and planes. I also love to weld. One time I helped my dad to build a tractor attachment. I also love to woodwork and made my own cabinet and chess board out of wood. I also love to play board games and to spend time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am mormon because I know that this church is true without a shadow of a doubt. All my life I have believed in God. As I attended church I could just feel such a peace in my heart. Our faith always grows as a tiny seed into a great tree. For me there were so many times in my life when I would feel lonely and sad. At these times I could feel peace in my heart and a feeling that God loved me and that he was watching over me. As I read my scriptures and prayed I would receive direction and guidance from God. I would follow it and it would work. I know that God answered prayers. In the book of mormon in Mormon 10:4-6 it states " Behold, I would exhort you that when ye shall read these things...and ponder it in your hearts.And when ye shall receive these things, I would exhort you that ye would ask God, the Eternal Father, in the name of Christ, if these things are not true; and if ye shall ask with a sincere heart, with real intent, having faith in Christ, he will manifest the truth of it unto you, by the power of the Holy Ghost. And by the power of the Holy Ghost ye may know the truth of all things. And whatsoever thing is good is just and true; wherefore, nothing that is good denieth the Christ, but acknowledgeth that he is." I prayed about it to know if it was true and my prayers were answered affirmatively. I know that God lives, that Jesus is the Christ and that this church is the true church of Christ because I have prayed about it myself and received a witness and a confirmation from God himself. We do not need to understand everything, for no man can, but we must gain our own confirmation from God rather than relying on the sophistries and logic of the world for an answer. I know that God loves us and is waiting to bless us all we have to do is to look around at our life and we will see the hand of God in our life. I know this gospel is true. And that if you ask him in prayer he will give you the same witness and testimony that I have received.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by actively striving each day to become better than I was before. I try to emulate the same love which Jesus had for us in my life. One of my favorite things to do is to serve others. In my life I've faced a lot of rejection, and persecution, so I love to look for those who are on the outside of the group and serve them. I love to try and be everyone's friend helping serve their needs and cheering up their day by just smiling or talking to them. I really like to try and bring all around me closer to Christ and the great love that we can all have for one another. I also love to talk to people on the road and the bus and befriend them as well. I also love to search my scriptures daily. This helps me get to know God and Jesus better, allowing me to see the attributes that they display, and allowing me to try and apply it in my own life. One of the favorite things in my life is feeling the love of God in my heart. I can feel that God loves me and when I feel this love it is the most peaceful thing ever. As I go about doing good and serving my fellowmen I can feel greater love in my heart becoming more Christlike.

What do Mormons believe is the purpose of life?

Dallin
What is our purpose in life is often times is probably the most profound question that we all ask ourselves. Why am I here? What am I to do? And what is the point of this life? For me I have found the answer and for me it has helped me in my life. That answer is found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. In the scriptures it tells us in 2 Nephi 2:25 that men are that they might have joy. If you were to ask anyone they would tell you that that is what they want to find in their lives is joy. As I have traveled around the world I have met a lot of people and all of these people find different ways to feel happiness and joy. Some people like to golf, others like to read. These are great ways for them to find moments of happiness and joy but all of these are momentary pleasures not the joy that lasts forever. So how do we find the Joy that lasts forever? Jesus Christ left us that answer in the scriptures in the form of commandments. These commandments or rules for our lives is the key to our happiness. As we follow them in this life they help us stay on the right path and as we do good then we feel good and this good feeling is true Joy. Before this world was God had a plan for us to come down to this earth and to gain a body. We would be tested to see what we would choose good or bad. As we choose good we become more like God and Jesus Christ and we feel happiness. I know that following Christ will always bring us lasting joy it has for me and I know it will for you.
