Hi I'm Dallin

I live in London. I'm starting a golf company/charity. I am crazy in love with my wife. And I'm a mormon!

About Me

I have been blessed to be a part of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ since birth. I was born in Utah to excellent parents as one of five children. After high school I was called to serve as a full time missionary in the Indianapolis, Indiana mission. I can say without question that my mission was turning point in my life and every good thing, since those days, has come as a result of the experiences I had on my mission and the grace of God. Since returning home I have graduated from the University of Utah and am currently working as a marketer in the London area. But the two most important parts of my life are my beautiful wife and my relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. Every day I am grateful that God has given me this angel to share my life and eternity with. She makes me want to be a better husband, (someday) father, and disciple of Jesus Christ. My relationship with my Savior grows everyday as I become acutely aware of my dependence upon Him for everything that I have. He is my light, He is my joy, and in Him I find comfort, peace and eternal life.

Why I am a Mormon

Heber C. Kimball, former apostle of the LDS church said, "man cannot endure on borrowed light." As a young man this statement took on new meaning to me. Having grown up as a member of the Mormon church I was faced with a time when I needed to decide what I truly believed and not just the assurance, "borrowed light," of my parents. I can distinctly recall one evening, after reading in the Book of Mormon, kneeling near my bedside to pray and ask my Father in Heaven if what I was reading was true, if Jesus Christ really did atone for my sins, if the Book of Mormon was a true record, and if I should continue if following what I had be taught. To describe what I felt I have often used the words of a favorite song by the Eagles, "I got a peaceful, easy feeling." A rush sense of calmness entered into my heart and knowledge into my mind. Verifying to me that Jesus Christ lives, that the Book of Mormon and Bible testify of Him, and that the LDS church is Christ's church on the earth today and it is lead by Him through Prophets and Apostles. Since this experience I have had countless others, some powerful, some small, but all of them witness to me that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, my Savior and your Savior. This I know of myself independent of any other person, because Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, has testified to my heart that it is true. This testimony I cherish above anything on earth, and I know that anyone who honestly seeks will come to the same conclusion. I would invite anyone that reads this to do as I have done. Read the Book of Mormon and take the challenge in it's final pages, to pray and ask God, in the name of Christ, if the book is true. I am confident that those who do will come to the same conclusion as I have, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It has brought me closer to Jesus Christ and is an integral part of who I am today. Thank you for reading, God bless!

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by doing little things I feel Christ would have me do; a kind gesture, an act of service, or a simple hello. A poem I a few years back has made me think about the affect one kind deed can have, "Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu. When someone smiled at me today I started smiling too. I passed around the corner and someone caught my grin, when he smiled I realized I'd passed it on to him. I thought about that smile and then realized it's worth, a simple smile just like mine could travel 'round the earth. So if you feel a smile begin don't leave it undetected, let's start an epidemic quick and get the world infected!" Being a Christian, to me, is about more than just professing to a particular belief system, it is about being His hands when he places individuals in our path. As our Savior said "when ye have done it unto the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me." The opportunity we have as Christians is for others to see the love of Christ through us, by our actions and in our eyes. Although I am far from perfect, I do my best to become what he would have be become and to do what he would have me do. Each day I ask for strength to be better tomorrow than I was today and forgiveness where I fall short. I am so grateful for His patience and mercy as I struggle along the path of discipleship which leads back to his presence. In addition, I strive to serve in my community, for the last few years I have had to opportunity to work with the scouting organization as a youth leader. Teaching young men life long skills and character traits to help them become better citizens and men. This service has taken me to the tops of mountains, homeless shelters, genealogy libraries, deserts and lakes, but no matter the destination I am inspired by the young men I work with. I am inspired by their drive, their love for each other and for those serve. They continue to teach me more than I'll ever teach them.
