Hi I'm David

I grew up in south Salt Lake City and even though I was born into the church my conversion is an ongoing daily adventure!

About Me

I'm a traditional student at one of BYU's awesome schools! Scheduled for graduation in August 2014. I love outdoors and being active! If there is water involved I'm in! I love wake boarding behind a boat playing my favorite jams in Lake Powell aka Heaven on earth! I've recently been to Hawaii and Puerto Rico on vacation, a well deserved and needed break! I love to play games with friends and family and am no stranger to Hacky Sack.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and find myself in new situations and opportunities to expand my knowledge and love for my Savior every single day. It isn't an event, it may start with our baptism by those who hold authority but that is only the beginning. I had my family there to support me but growing up I also had a friend of another faith. He constantly challenged my faith, causing doubts and sewing disbelief in specific parts of our church. But that only made me stronger, it caused me to wrestle with every aspect of the gospel and it's historical evolution. The promise I have to you is the same that is found of in the scriptures, if you lack wisdom ask God. He will manifest the truth of all things if we have real intent (paraphrased from James chapter 1 and Moroni chapter 10). I have obtained a solid unwavering testimony of Jesus Christ and His church but only one step at a time, precept upon precept and line upon line. But I can promise you, if you take that time and develop your relationship with God and know His will. You will not be left astray. Above all the Gospel of Jesus Christ has taught me to love. To love everyone. To love life. Live in the moment. Don't dwell on the past but look to the future because it is bright and glorious. Have faith in God and he will guide you. I bare my testimony that this is His church. The gospel of Jesus Christ is again found in its fullness upon the earth. Restored with every right and principle in its proper form by a profit of God, Joseph Smith. It is also led today by a living profit Thomas S. Monson. I Recognize it is filled with imperfect people that will let you down from time to time, but remember it isn't about them. It is about you and God. It is about each of us coming closer to him and choosing to follow him despite the things that try to tear us down. Because we are better than that, we are his children, and he Loves us. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen

How I live my faith

I frequently find opportunities to serve those around me. I like to donate blood and frequently find myself on the phone talking to friends in need. I am a people person and love to help council those in need.
