Hi I'm Don

I'm a physical therapy student, avid sports fan, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a 24 year old physical therapy student. When I'm not studying for school, I'm usually hanging out with friends. I love to play sports and spend time in the outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the LDS church and so I've had an insider's perspective all my life. There are so many things that I love about the church. The biggest thing that it gives me is peace and understanding. It has helped me to know God and his son Jesus Christ and to understand their character. It has really helped me to "zoom out" from my own day to day life and see who I am to a greater degree. I have been able to better understand how I fit into God's plan. Because of my membership in the church I know that God does have a plan for me. I know why I am here on this earth and I know that life doesn't end with death nor did it begin with birth. My faith allows me to understand both current and historical events in the world and see trends that God has foretold. In the church I also find strength to meet the demands placed on me. I am able to face hardships and struggles because of the enabling power that I receive from Jesus's Christ's atonement, the church has helped me to learn how to tap into this power. I also have the blessing of incredible social support from my church family. All of these blessings are minuscule in comparison to the blessings that I know God has in store for all of us.

How I live my faith

There are many ways in which I strive to live my faith. I try to see others how God sees them. I try to be kind and courteous to others. I try to serve other people every day in whatever way I can. In my ward (local congregation) I serve by setting up appointments for the bishop to meet with other members of the ward.
