Hi I'm Dax

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from Alpine, Utah currently serving a mission in Jackson, Mississippi. I come from a very close family that mean the world to me. I love sports, especially football, I plan on playing college football when I get home. I also love mountain biking and fishing and being outdoors in general.

Why I am a Mormon

Like a lot of people, I was raised in an LDS home and have been going to church my whole life. I was raised in a great home and I never doubted the Gopsel. I always supported the Church and its teachings, however it never was a big priority to me. In middle school and high school my church responsibilities took a back seat to football, friends and girls. I was going through the motions of the Gospel and my testimaony started to dwindle. When it came time for me to prepare for my mission, it was time for me to truly search and find out for myself if the Church is true. I took Moroni's promise to heart (Moroni 10:3-5) and read the entire Book of Mormon. I can honestly say that I now know 100% that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is true. It has blessed my life in countless ways. And that is why I'm serving a mission for the Lord, because I know how this Gospel can bless everybody.

How I live my faith

I live my faith right now by serving a 2 year mission in Jackson, Mississippi. I have sacrificed a lot being out here, from friends, football scholarships, 2 seasons of watching The Chargers and most importantly my family. I know that it is all worth it though, Heavanly Father has given me so much in my life, 2 years is such a small amount of time and I owe him everything.
