Hi I'm David

I grew up in California, between the mountains and the sea. I became a physicist and a professor. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, a father, a Sunday School teacher, and a physics professor. I enjoy table-top, role-playing, and video games, shooting Olympic-style recurve target archery, hiking the great outdoors, and using my hands to build things. I wear bow ties and toe shoes.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by excellent parents who taught me to question, to discover, to find out for myself what I believe. In my profession, I am trained to be skeptical: assertions need to be tested; data must be gathered to support an idea or explanation. I have developed the same healthy skepticism in my spiritual and religious pursuits: always questioning, seeking for evidence to support my belief and faith. I found that evidence in the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the doctrine espoused by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It works. It is true. I know this because I have seen the evidence in my own life and the lives of others: the change for good that ennobles an individual, a family, and a community. Don't take my word for it: try it, and find out for yourself.

How I live my faith

I do my best to serve those around me by being there and helping when and where I can. I teach Sunday School, which gives me a chance to interact with people in a setting that encourages a sharing of belief and faith. My wife and I work hand in hand to make our home a place of peace, comfort, and joy for our children and all those who cross our threshold.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

We believe the Bible to be the word of God, and do our best to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ contained within its sacred pages. Show more Show less
