Hi I'm David

I currently live in Pittsburgh, I am going to school for Film at the Art Institute , and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well as I said before, I live in Pittsburgh and have for the last year and a half now. Before that i lived in Fairmont and Morgantown. I haven't always had an easy life but I'm not going to let my past bring me down. I know that things will get better in the end if you just hold on and try to be a better person. Everyday I become a better stronger person and I thank God for that.

Why I am a Mormon

Why I am a Mormon is because first of all: the faith of the true and restored Gospel. I was converted and joined the church when i was 15. I was in a bad situation at this time. i was living in Fairmont and my mom was dating an abusive drug dealer who would hurt me and my little half-brother and half- sister. But a ray of hope came when a new family moved in across the street from me. the older sister of the younger brother came over one day when i was home alone looking for someone for her little brother to play with. Eventually that family started seeing the Missionary's and Elders, who i think were also trying to reach me and my family, but didn't get to because of my moms boyfriend. After some time the family started inviting me to their Family Home Evening Events and then after that I started meeting with the Missionary's myself and after the lessons from both Sisters and Elders, I was baptized on Easter Sunday in March of 2005. I fell away from the church for a time but upon my return to Pittsburgh when i was on Pitt campus hanging out by myself a new set of sisters found me and brought me back to the church. I believe in the power of this Gospel and i know that it is the true and restored Gospel of Jesus Christ, I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and he restored the true church and the Priesthood to the earth, and I know that we have a living prophet of the church today, and I sat these things in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith is by first and fore-most living my life after the Savior Jesus Christ. I try my hardest to be nice and kind to all people, no matter who they are or their circumstance, because to me we all have a past and need to be forgiven. I come to most of the church actives even though its a 3 mile walk to get to the church. I try to be as diligent, kind, and faithful as the Savior and my hope is to one day meet Him.
