Hi I'm David

I'm a remodeling contractor primarily, and an artist secondarily. I love to read and learn new things. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up with a father in the military, so I moved around frequently and got to see and experience other countries. Some of my fondest memories as a child were going to visit my grandfather. I would go to work with him and fell in love with building homes. It's because of these experiences that I became a building contractor myself. I'm married and a father of six wonderful children. Besides going to college for Building Construction and Construction Management, I also went to school for Commercial Arts and Graphic Design. And although I do art mainly as a hobby, I have illustrated two books and designed a dozen company logos.

Why I am a Mormon

Although both my parents are Mormon, I believe everyone as individuals needs to come to a realization of whether they want to be a Mormon or not. For me, that was at the age of 14. I had made some bad choices, but instead of being upset with me (although I'm sure he was), my father, even though he was disappointed, talked to me about how much he loved me. That made an indelible impression on me. I knew how my "friend's" parents reacted to their poor choices and that was what I was expecting, not a greater show of love. So I made a decision to find out for myself why my father would do that. I also made a decision that I would never do something that my father would be disappointed in again. I found the way to accomplish both decisions in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I learned for myself about the love of our Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I also learned that the commandments of God aren't restrictions on my life, but guidance to the greatest happiness we can find, here on earth and after death. And the greatest thing that I learned while I was trying to accomplish my decisions was that I didn't have to believe what someone else had told me in order to know these things are true, Heavenly Father will tell you Himself! It may not be in a way that you think it should be, but you can know without a doubt that it came from Him. I know for myself, and that's why I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

First and foremost, I live my faith in everything I do. It's not just something I do on Sunday. As a contractor, that is refreshing to the people that I work with because I do what I say I'm going to do, when I say I'm going to do it. I do not work on Sunday and do not allow my employees to work either. I do not require my employees to belong to a religion or even believe in God, but they know that I believe our company will be more successful by showing this respect to God than by any other means. I believe this is a day reserved for the Lord, and any homeowner that I work for knows this is the case from the start and that no work will be done on that day. Other ways I show my faith is by studying the scriptures daily and discussing them with my children. Also, I have served in the Church in many different capacities, and currently, I'm working with the young men in teaching them on Sunday, helping them with other youth experiences during the week and Boy Scout activities like camp outs and Merit Badges.
