Hi I'm David

I'm from California. I love to spend time with my family. I love to surf, swim, play water polo, and be outdoors. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hi I'm David Clegg...I am currently serving in the Pittsburgh, PA mission. I love the work and i am so blessed to be serving these wonderful people. Serving, and performing the lords works is an absolute blessing, in which i will never take for granted.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised a Mormon and I have and always will be so proud to call myself LDS. I am now serving my mission in Pittsburgh. I was so lucky to be the youngest so that i may follow the examples of my siblings. What a blessing it has been to be able to look to them for an answer to whatever questions i may have. I love this gospel, and i am so grateful for the blessings that come about through Jesus Christ our Savior. i promise you will never find a greater joy than when you are following the Lords teachings. This church is true, and we have a living prophet, Thomas S. Monson, who leads and guides us each and everyday. i promise you that as we follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, we will return to our Heavenly Father and Him.

How I live my faith

I believe I live my faith on a day to day basis, by thanking My savior and redeemer for each blessing through my actions. Currently I am blessed to be serving a full-time mission in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It was a tough decision to go on a mission, I left behind loved ones as well as college opportunities to serve the lord. But i put my personal life on hold, because I know that the decision to serve the lord was the right one for me at this time in my life. I am so blessed to serve in the lords vineyard and find those who may be lost and bringing them back into his arms by sharing the restored gospel to them. I have a very strong desire to serve Jesus Christ because I know he gave his life for me, and the way to show gratitude to me, is by serving him with my whole heart, might, mind, and strength. I try each and everyday to live my life in accordance with the principles that Jesus Christ taught, for i know that if i do that, then that is true Faith and Conversion to him. i am not perfect, i make mistakes, but i know through the atonement of Jesus Christ i can be made whole. i live my life the way i do because i love the Lord

What is faith?

David
Faith is a principle. It is also an action word. Faith is not developed by sitting back and relaxing, but strong faith is developed by obedience to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Alma teaches us that "faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true." (Alma 32: 21, Book of Mormon). I know that this church is true simply because i had the faith to ask my Father in Heaven. You can develop such faith, and knowledge, when you act on a simple desire to be obedient to Gods commands.
