Hi I'm Dave McLachlan

I was born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and raised in Cardston, Alberta. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to garden. My hobbies are Photography and wood working. I enjoy fishing and being outdoors. I have a great love for the Scouting program of Canada.

Why I am a Mormon

As a child my mother always took me to the United Church and then after her divorce she married a mormon and began to learn about the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She and I were baptized at the same time when I was eight years of age. As I studied the church on my own I came to appreciate the teaching of where I came from and why I am here and where I go when I leave this life. I learned that I could know for myself whether this church was true or not. As I studied I came to know my Heavenly Father and appreciate his plan for His children. I loved the fact that I did not have to take any body's word whether it was true but I could find out for myself. I have come to know that God lives and Jesus is the Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was and is a Prophet of The Lord and that he saw what he said he saw. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that you can get closer to God by living it precepts and practices. I know that we have living Prophets upon the earth today and that our current president is a Prophet Seer and Revelator. I know that the family unit is eternal and that I have can have my family together forever.

How I live my faith

I love to help other people and I have had the opportunity to serve in the church from being a teacher of children and youth to adults. Now I have answered a call to serve a mission for the church
