Hi I'm Duncan

I grew up in California. I am an Eagle Scout and play the trumpet. I love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the youngest of three children, and the only brother of my two sisters. We are all musically inclined, and I personally play the trumpet. I love jazz, ska, and punk rock, as well as anything that I can get in the mood for. I have worked at an arcade, where we also had laser tag, mini golf, and a large play structure, where I learned to love working one on one with people, as well as my knack for working with kids. I am accepted to attend college, where I plan to study some form of psychology so that I can work with people and help them with their problems. I am also an Eagle Scout, and love a good story, whether from a book, a movie, a game, or a friend.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon home, to Mormon parents and siblings. When I was eight years old, I was baptized and made a member of the church, but I was always given an option. Before my baptism, I was given the same discussions and lessons given to any investigator to the church, and made that decision knowing full well what I was doing. I continue to follow Christ's gospel today thanks to the many strong experiences that I and loved ones have had. I have seen the gospel turn lives around for the better, guys that I grew up with that I never would have imagined could ever hold the same convictions as I, converted, and now some of the strongest church members I will ever know. The church is composed of people, and those people are not always the best, but the church itself is by far the best thing that I have come across.

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday like most good Christens, but I also am much more involved in my faith than most people that are not Mormon. Every month I visit certain families in the congregation at home so that they know they are loved, and so that they have someone that they can call when they need help, whether its a sick family member or a broken sink. I work with fellow church members to keep the church building clean and in good repair, and make sure that it is locked up on a nightly basis. I have been called out with companions to visit the elderly, disabled, or injured in homes and hospitals, and have even been called by good friends in their time of need.
