Hi I'm Dallin

I grew up in Utah and California. I swim. I play guitar. I want to explore the world. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Ogden, UT and have moved around with my family a few times. Our biggest adventure was moving to Valencia, CA when I was in second grade. We missed the cousins too much, though, and moved back to Utah a couple years later. We've been here ever since. I graduated as Student Body Vice President of my high school last year with a 4.0 and have been at college since then. I'm studying business and pre-med, but still have no idea what I'm doing with my life. I joined a fraternity, Sigma Phi Epsilon, and have made incredible friendships there. Currently, I'm doing door-to-door sales until I leave for my mission. I'll be serving the people of the South Africa Durban mission for the next two years. I couldn't be more excited to share with them the message of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints! I love to swim, I love to play guitar, and I love music. An ideal day for me would be chilling on the beach in Hawaii or Jamaica jamming to some reggae tunes. I would have absolutely no problem with being a beach bum the rest of my life.

Why I am a Mormon

I've been a Mormon my whole life. My parents are members, their parents are members, and their parents were all members. Looking back, I think I almost took my faith for granted growing up. When I moved from Utah to California in second grade, I was shocked to learn that there were actually people in the world who didn't go to church. I couldn't believe that the kid across the street wasn't going to be in my primary class!

How I live my faith

I love to participate with my local Mormon community. The ward I've lived in for the last seven years is absolutely spectacular. I've had many friends over my life, but none as close or meaningful as some of the ones I've made at church. Whether it was campouts, high adventures, service projects, or ward get-togethers, we always had a great time and had each others' backs. This last year I've been attending a Young Single Adults ward at college which has been a great experience. All the callings were given to the college kids, so it was an incredible experience to see the ward run by people my age. Up at school, I got to hometeach some of the best friends I've ever made. Sharing small lessons with them and hearing about their lives was always a great experience.
