Hi I'm David Golden Hulet

I grew up in Bountiful, Utah! I love music and getting to know people! And I love being a Mormon!

About Me

The quickest way to describe who I am is starting off that I am an Eagle Scout. I mention this because of the broad expanse that this covers! I have always loved to be with people and to be apart of teams. I started off playing soccer and shortly after both football and baseball followed. I love nature also, ever since I was little I always enjoyed just slowing down and appreciating the things around me. Sunsets, the smell after it rains and fresh snow are just a few things that I really enjoy! Scouts also instilled in me a love for learning! I enjoy studying biology, history and everything to do with Human Physiology! Music has also been a big part of my life as I have learned to play the piano, clarinet and the tuba, at the moment I spend most of my time singing and whistling but playing music is one of the things I live for! Scouts also helped me get closer to my family. I have a big extended family and a small immediate family of which I am the youngest! They define much of who I really am and I love them a lot! Otherwise I'm your average guy that loves laughing and having a good time!

Why I am a Mormon

I live my life the way I do because first and foremost I know that it is true. Through personal experience I have proven the doctrines and teachings of Jesus Christ in my life! I have felt the Holy Ghost testify to my heart that this is where God wants me to be. I know that the doctrines and ordinances of His Church are what will help me to live the happiest life possible. Also, I do it because of my family. My Grandpa died when my mom was eight and I never had the chance to know him, but because of God's plan for us I know we can be together once again. I am a Mormon because it fills me with joy and accomplishment that I know I couldn't feel in any other avenue. I follow the teachings of Christ because I know He loves me and He has been at my side through it all. Upon reflection I have no doubt that this is God's Church on the earth today, of which I am so grateful to be a member.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a two year calling to be a missionary for the Church in San Diego, California. I love being a missionary and helping people more fully understand how they can come closer to Christ and return to God. Before I came on my mission I was a Home Teacher, part of a youth leadership committee and loved coming to Church to be with my friends and family. I live my Faith by trying to uphold standards that God has set for us in family life, our community and as a nation. Whether on the football field, at work mowing lawns, or in the classroom I try to be my best by loving everyone, giving service and smiling. Most of all i try to improve daily to show that it really is possible to change by relying on Jesus Christ.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

David Golden Hulet
I love the scriptures! More than anything I have felt the support of God as I give effort to study and understand the direction in the scriptures! As disciples of Christ is it so important to understand His words and the words spoken through His prophets. The strength and spiritual power that comes from knowledge of God's will for us is liberating. When we know what to do, how to do it and why, life becomes more clear and the joy that comes from righteousness comes into our lives! Questions that occupy our minds with worry are replaced with comforting understanding of God's plan for us! The instruction manual for life is found in the pages of the scriptures and helps guide and direct us thanks to the inspiration of the prophets and apostles that wrote in the Bible and Book of Mormon.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

David Golden Hulet
Just as with any search for truth I think it's very important to put a principle into practice to see the results. Researching and understanding the beliefs and putting them to the test is how I believe the most valuable witness, the witness of the Holy Spirit, will come. Just as a math equation or lab experiment needs to be tested to be proven it is similar with understanding the truth of this subject matter. The difference here is rather than the instructions involving complicated formulas and rules, God has given us a simple pattern to follow. 1.)Sincerity of heart 2.)Real intent to act upon answers received and 3.) Faith that God will answer this important question that you have brought to Him.(Moroni 10:4-5) I know that as you pray and ask, search continually and pay attention to the feelings and thoughts that come while pondering on these things you will receive an answer!

What is the Law of Chastity?

David Golden Hulet
The Law of Chastity is the BEST! God has given guidance to help us understand our self worth and protect ourselves from emotional and physical damage that comes from these particular transgressions. The Law of Chastity is a commandment that clarifies that sexual relations are to be only between a man and woman who are married, and that a man and woman are to be completely faithful to one another in their relationship! The commandment also includes personal sexual purity in action, thoughts and words. God has given us a gift to bring life into this world and as we show respect and value to this gift by maturely acknowledging its sacred nature we will be blessed! Obeying the Law of Chastity shows to our spouses, children and God that we love them enough to go against the norm and live a pure, clean life. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

David Golden Hulet
More often then not we enjoy talking about our experiences and how Jesus Christ has influenced and helped us. We share a personal message about the Savior, His atonement and His Gospel! We also share God's plan for us individually as well as specific plans for us in our families! It revolves around revelation from God and an opportunity to feel the Holy Ghost! Its a great time!
