Hi I'm T Allen Dustin

I am me.

About Me

I am me and only me and I do not know how to be anything else

Why I am a Mormon

That is the question that I asked myself at one time. Being a Mormon is a lot more than being a member of a certain religion, it has to do with the way one lives one's life. Even though I was born and raised in the church, I was raised to never accept things blindly and to always ask questions. So I did, I went to church and other events with friends of mine that was not LDS, so that I could see and compare the differences, plus so that I would have a better understanding of what it was that my friends believed in, as a result, I found many things lacking in the various other faiths and they definitely had some difficulties in answering some of the questions that I posed them. I did decide to stay with the LDS faith because I was able to find fuller, more complete and more satisfying answers to my questions, even though I find that the more that I study and learn, the more questions that I find.

How I live my faith

For a long time I didn't. I was living a life that was not healthy by any definition of the word, I was deliberately putting myself into situations that was very harmful. But now I have turned my life around and becoming more in harmony and in tune with the way I truly desire to live. I lost everything that was most precious, the ability to hold the Melchizedek Priesthood and bless my family, plus I lost the privilege of being able to go to the Temple. I am working hard to once again bring my life back to the point when I can have the honor and privilege of once again holding the Priesthood and being able to once again step foot worthly in to the Temple of God.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No we are not, in fact I did not. I stayed home and started raising a family sooner than I had originally planned. Show more Show less
