Hi I'm Dusty

I am from Lehi Ut, and JonesBZ in the ATL, I love spanish, I love people, I love music, and I am a proud mormon

About Me

I love sports. I grew up playing baseball, and now my passion is basketball. I also was the high school mascot at Lehi my senior year and that was one of the funnest things I have ever done in my life. It helped me grow closer to some people I never would have and learn to make lifelong friends. I am a very social and silly guy. I love just enjoying life in any way possible. I have a very positive outlook on anything. I can take most situations and make them fun and enjoyable. I can take even the simplest of objects and turn them into hours of entertainment, not only for me but for others around me. I really love being around other people. I honestly cant go a day without hanging out with my friends or I regret it, but mostly becasue I want to help them in any way I can. I am bad in this area of helping. Most of the I want to help too much and then I never get my stuff done or I sometimes help too much but I cant help it is so awesome. A hobby of mine is Model building. I have been building plastic models since I was a little kid. I love to build the tanks and the ships and also I love learning about each model I build. I also love speaking spanish. I want to continue to study spanish my whole life and also study a couple more languages.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I love my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ with all my heart and soul. I know that he loves me and everyone else in our own way. He loves us no matter what we do in this life, we can make it back it to us because he loves us so much he sent his son to save us. The day that I came to know that was when I was about 18. I had been goin through some rough trials because me and my mom had both been sick and trading hospital visits for about 8 months. We were both down with not getting better and we were very discouraged. Then, one day I was at work talking with some friends and I got a call from my mom. She then told me that my grandpa had just committed suicide. I couldnt believe it, with all that we were going through and then another thing. about a week later after we had gotten everything settled and after the service, I got down on my knees and pleaded with my Heavently Father to please help me and to know if he loves me and if my grandpa would be ok. I then recieved the greatest spiritual feeling I have ever recieved. Through the spririt, I know Heavenly Father declared to me that he does love me more than words can describe and also I recieved a feeling that my grandpa was ok. Jesus Christ died for all of our sins, and through him and the eternal Plan of Salvation that our Heavenly Father prepared for us, we can return to live with Our Father and Our Savior Jesus Christ and also we can live with our families forever. I know that I will see my grandpa again and I know that this Gospel is true with all of my heart and soul.

How I live my faith

I live my faith through serving others. I always look for ways to help people in the littlest ways or in a big way like mowing a lawn. I love to do my hometeaching. The best feeling comes from serving others. My favorite thing to do is in Utah it snows often, so in the winter I will wake up and go over to my families I teach and shovel their walks and also my neighbors. The best feeling comes from when they come out of their doors and are totally surpised and dont know who did it. I even like just taking my friends trays to the trash when we go out to eat, just anything I can do to help. I have served a mission which the ultimate service. I cant tell you what an immense feeling of Joy and happiness it brings when you help someone find their Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ again.

Who founded Mormonism and The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

Jesus Christ. This is his church that he just restored through Joseph Smith. This church is the same church that Jesus Christ himself established when he was on the earth with the Apostles. The only difference is that he was the Prophet then and Joseph Smith is the first prophet of our day and age chosen to restore that same church back to the earth Show more Show less
