Hi I'm Dustin Payne

I'm from Salt Lake City, Utah. I have 4 Brothers and 1 Sister. I love spending time with my family and friends.

About Me

My favorite things to do are Longboading, Water and Snow ski, playing Lacrosse as well as any other sport, and just living an active life style. I spend most of my time with my friends but always leave room for some solid family time. I love music. Whether i'm working, longboarding or skiing, i'm listening to music.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church but have been able to build my testimony through living the principles and doctrines in the church and gaining an understanding as to why we do those specific things. Another reason why why i'm a mormon is because of the spiritual confirmation I recieved when reading and praying about the Book of Mormon. One of the reasons I continue to be a Mormon is through daily confirmations of The Holy Spirit through scripture study, prayer and service to others.

How I live my faith

I live my faith day by day. I do my best to follow the example Jesus Christ has set for me. I try to treat others and I want to be treated. I set apart my sundays for attending church, and being with my family. I believe in serving others, as well as developing and nurishing friendships with others. I think one of the greatest ways I've shown my faith was through serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Manchester England. But now I live my faith one day at a time trying to stay as close to God and Jesus Christ as possible.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

Serving a mission is not mandatory for church members. As President Thomas S. Monson said, we believe it is a priesthood duty to serve. But of course, one should serve a mission if they feel that God has told them to do so. Show more Show less
