Hi I'm David Cook

Hi! I grew up in Alta Loma,CA. I do insurance, I love music, racquetball, golf, and quads. I am definitely a Mormon.

About Me

Wow, this is a loaded question for me! Currently, I love GOLF! Lately, I can't get enough. I also play racquetball with my buddies each morning at a local fitness club. Music is also a big part of my life. I play in a rock and roll band (called "Sparetime"). All of my family is involved in music in some way. We have five kids. They are the joy of my life! I am an insurance agent by trade.

Why I am a Mormon

I love how the Gospel teaches us correct principles. It protects us. Some think that "rules" keep us from having fun. But the thing is, living the Gospel is fun and we are protected from harm when we do. The members of the Church are normal people, and the leaders genuine; so refreshing! The real reason I joined is that I have found that the Book of Mormon to be true, and the doctrine of Jesus Christ is taught in it's fullness here. I find joy and happiness as I serve, and it really has made for quite a fulfilling life.

How I live my faith

I am a convert to the Church. I joined when I was 23. It was the best decision of my life! I go to Church each Sunday with my wife and my children. I also serve in the Church (I help to organize the missionaries in Murrieta). I read and pray, and I do my best to be a good father, husband, and an honest businessman. I make mistakes, and I come to Church each Sunday to learn more, repent, and to start over again. This weekly refining process has been so good for me. I hate to think where I would be without the Church!
