Hi I'm David

I am English, I am married to my best friend and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a happy go lucky guy and I married my best friend. I enjoy making people around me smile and bringing laughter and fun to wherever I am. I have been to several countries and made friends all over the world. I don't like seeing children bored and so I learned how to make origami (the fun things like ninja stars). I enjoy bike rides and spending time with my wife who is my world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because with it my life carries so much more meaning. I am the youngest of 5. I have 2 older brothers and 2 older sisters. My parents had a daughter who would have been the very oldest and meant that there would have been 6 instead of 5. Her name is Rebecca. She died 2 days after birth due to medical complications. I never got to meet my older sister which makes me really sad. Luckily for me I have been blessed with coming to know of the love that God has for us as His children. In the church we learn of how families can become eternal. Christ loves us and has made a way for this to happen through the Atonement. Once we die and are resurrected we are reunited with those who have died before. I know I will get to see my sister. I will get to hug her and know her just as I could have done here on earth. I know that God lives and wants us to be happy. He has shared simple truths through his prophets since Adam until today to give hope and peace to us in times of trouble. He invites all to learn of him and know him so they too can receive peace in this world of trouble.

How I live my faith

I have had some great experiences with the church. I got to be a leader twice for a youth summer camp that the church runs and I really got to help the lives of one or two of the youth that attended. At the moment I visit 3 families from church in the area that I live and I get to see the love and happiness the gospel has brought in their lives. I sometimes get the chance to teach on a Sunday. Its a great chance for me to learn more and also to have fun.
