Hi I'm David Tripp

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was born in Provo, UT, and raised in Arizona.

About Me

I finished high school a couple years earlier than most and entered college at BYU when I was 16 studying Biochemistry. For now, however, I am out serving a mission in San Jose, California!

Why I am a Mormon

Why am I a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints? 1. Because Jesus is the Christ. 2. Because Joseph Smith really was a prophet, called by God to restore the fullness of His gospel. Faith is a funny word, but it's something that is experienced through action. Read scriptures, go to church, pray and if you seek to honestly know God's will, or to know in the first place that He exists and cares for you, the truth of it will be manifested through the Holy Ghost in feelings of peace, comfort, understanding and joy.

How I live my faith

I had opportunities to serve both local members of the church as well as the community with service projects and other situations in which I was able to help. I also try to find ways to share the knowledge I find in scriptures and personal experience to benefit others.
