Hi I'm Dean

I live in Scotland and I'm a Mormon

About Me

My name is Dean and I’m a Mormon. I live in Scotland and I’m a Civil Servant. I am married to Dawna and we have 3 beautiful children. We are very blessed to have the opportunity to Home educate our children.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who was called upon to translate the Book of Mormon and restore the Lord’s true church and Priesthood authority to the earth. I know that Jesus Christ lives and guides this church through His prophets and apostles. I know that the joy and peace that I feel as I apply the principles of the gospel are feelings that come from the Holy Ghost. I know that the Holy Ghost can help us know the truth of all things. Even though I was raised as a member of the church there was a time when I had to find out for myself if all these things were true, so I knelt down and asked my Heavenly father if he was really there and if the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints was true. I received a witness through the Holy Ghost that he is there and that this is his church. This invitation is extended to the entire world to know what I know.

How I live my faith

I love my Savior, Jesus Christ and all that he has done for me. I try to follow his example to be the best person that I can. It is not always easy but I keep moving forward and look to Christ as my example. Serving in the Church is an important part of following Christ. It gives me the opportunity to serve others in a meaningful way. I am currently serving as Bishop of our ward. That keeps me very busy! The Gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me more happiness, peace and direction in my life that I could have ever imagined. Because I have been given that great gift, I want to share that with other people.
