Hi I'm Dalton

I've grown up throughout the U.S., reside in N.C. and am currently serving as a missionary in California. I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I have been a member my whole life, but I havent always believed in the gospel of Jesus Christ as I do now.I love my family more than anything. I have the best by far! My father converted to the church 10 years after being married to my mother and he is the best guy I know and my mother is my Guardian Angel. I love doing everything! I love North Carolina beaches, especially the Outer Banks. It's the best place to be. I like all seasons and I like the mountains. I'm a musician and song writer. Music, either making it or listening to it is a passion of mine. If only I could sing too! I love to cook and Soccer is my favorite sport but I love to do it all. I'm also very out-going and like making new friends. I'm creative and love everyone. And I love Stride sweet peppermint gum haha.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day saints because it allows me to look at myself in the mirror and smile. The blessings and opportunities that this gospel offers us is unique in every way, and I know that this is what God wants me to do. And it wasn't from any major revelation that I came to this knowledge, but by all of the many small ones. It's like God gives us all of these many reasons to believe, and then he gives us just one small trial to test our faith and see what we do with it. I've felt the Spirit of God testify it unto me. This church is the only one that is able to fully and correctly perform all of the ordinances that our Heavenly Father (God) has asked us to do so we can return to him. I have felt his love by using the greatest gift He's given us, the atonement, and applying it into my life to change my actions and to get on the strait path to coming closer to Christ. If I didn't have this gospel after knowing what I know, there would be nothing, no other faith, church, or belief that could not only give to me what it has given, but make me feel the peace, love, and true joy and happiness that the fullness of this gospel has given me.

How I live my faith

Right now I am a missionary for the church in the Anaheim, California Mission, currently in Yorba Linda 4th ward! The guy in the white shirt and tie on the bike handing out The Book of Mormon to all I can haha! This experience has been incredible to see the changes not only in the lives of others by watching them change their lives to come closer to Christ, but I have been doing the same. We can never be close enough. We can always do more and learn more.
