Hi I'm Dakota Crisp

I am a convert. Born and raised in California. Heading out on my mission to Angeles Philippines! I am Blessed to be LDS!

About Me

I love to read! I love helping people just to see how greatful they are, it makes me happy to show people that the younger generation is willing to help and give up their time for the sake of others. I am a convert of almost two years and the only member in my family. I am blessed to have the opportunity to serve a full-time mission to Angeles, Philippines in approximately two months! Woohoo!!! This church is the best thing to have ever happened in my life! I am really easy to get along with and my favorite scripture is Psalm 23:1-6 "The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever"

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be LDS because I know that this is the true Church of my Heavenly Father. Before I joined the Church I prayed to know if the Church was true and even if there was a God and if there was, why would he care about me? Then the missonaries came knocking at my door and told me that God is my Father and that through any adversity that I might go through He would be there by my side and that if the world turned its back on me and showed me no love He would always love me, flaws and all. That really got to me and I know there are hundreds of churches and religions out there that say they care but none care nearly as much as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. This church helps you instead of itself. It helps families bond both in this life and the next. It lends help to those in need and in my opinion the most important of all it inspires more people to become more christlike each and every day. This Church is perfect. It has the restored Gospel. I would love to bear my testimony to all who read this that I know that this is the true Church and that my Savior lives. I know that He will come again someday and that my family and I will live together for eternity and I know that my Heavenly Father loves each and every one of us and if we just pray humbly he will point us in the direction that we need to go in order to find peace and happiness in this life and the next.
