Hi I'm Dakota

I'm from Utah, enjoy playing sports, snowboarding, being a missionary, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived my entire life in Utah. Growing up I enjoyed playing sports and outdoor activities. I played baseball most of my life and really enjoy snowboarding in the winter. I was born into a family who loved and taught us the Gospel and I am very grateful for that. One thing I have learned since being on a mission is that the restored gospel blesses families. That's what is all for in the end. I am currently serving a full time mission in the Texas Houston East Mission and nothing has brought greater happiness into my life like teaching people about the restored gospel everyday.

Why I am a Mormon

You could say I was born into the church. Like I said I had great parents that taught me the gospel and saw that I was baptized and I am very grateful for that. But I do know now of the truthfulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ because of the peace and happiness that it brings into my life. My testimony of Jesus Christ has been framed mostly from reading the Book of Mormon. I know that it is the word of God because of that. Because I know the Book of Mormon to be true I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that through him the Church of Jesus Christ and the fullness of the gospel have been restored to the earth.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by putting God first in my life. That something that is much easier said than done. It requires sacrificing my own desires and will for God's. It requires that I must study and learn what I am to do and then do it. It means that I try never to compromise being obedient to God's commandments for another way that may seem easier and more convenient. It means serving others before myself and keeping the covenants and promises that I have made to God. Like I said it's not easy and I am definatley not perfect but it is what's important to me.
