Hi I'm David

I'm a Mormon. I love weight lifting, video games, and being a teacher.

About Me

Well, the coolest thing about me is that I'm a dad. Also, I love weight lifting, whether its power, olympic, or even crossfit, I just love the feeling that comes with it. Ironically, I also nerd out on video games sometimes. Did I mention I love eating? Yea, total binger. My more intellectual side will tell you I am a huge fan of fantasy that explores patterns of humanity, like Lord of the Rings, don't even get me started on how amazing that is. My degree is in Theatre and English Education, but I like to belive i'm certified in "thinking." I am a deep believer in the "why's" of the world and try my best to keep questioning. Here is a good question: How on earth did I land such an amazing wife?

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly, its the most logical thing I have ever done. I know that seems blasphemous, and that religion is about "feelings and revelations," but God gave me a brain and wanted me to use it. That's why we are here... to make choices... with our brain, with our eyes on the Lord. I know that my Heavenly Father is a God of rules, principles, patterns, and parrallels, and that just make sense. I have always kept my eyes open for these proofs and they led me to the LDS church. And the more I read, and pray, and listen to the church's leaders, the more the puzzle comes together. I love that feeling when I realize God is with me, and helping me. There is nothing like it. And when I look at my wife and my daughter and feel the love that I feel for them, I know that the Lord has made it this way forever, and that if I live the commandments, I will be with them for eternity.

How I live my faith

Its funny, the best way I live my faith is when I am in service to others. I love going out with the missionaries and helping find those who are searching for the way home. Of course, I cant be of much help if I am not growing myself. I try and read and pray often for opportunites where I can use any skills I have to helps others. I know that sounds cliche, but thats when I feel happiest, and so I want to keep doing it. Unfortunatly, its so easy to get busy, and become lazy, so I have to keep pushing. Luckily I always have sundays to keep me going.
