Hi I'm Dave

I grew up on Orange County, California. I enjoy camping, cooking, and writing poems. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I live in Riverside, California with my wife. Together we had five sons and eight grandchildren. I am a water treatment plant manager. I taught community college for seven years. I love to write poems, go on vacations with my wife, spend time with and cook for my family.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a young teen my grandmother was very ill. I prayed that if the Lord would heal her I would serve Him the rest of my life. She got better and several years later I was introduced to the Church and was baptized. I have been serving our Heavenly Father every since. I believe in Christ. I love him. He took away all of the sin and sorrow and pain in my life. Through Him I know I can be perfected and return to live with my Father in Heaven again. I must do all I can to be worthy of his love for me.

How I live my faith

I have served in various capacities in the Church. I enjoy serving with the youth the most. I was a lay minister (bishop) for my ward. I love to help people. I also enjoy teaching others about Christ, especially using all of the wonderful media that is available.
