Hi I'm Dominick

I love books & computers. I'm a Celiac. I'm going on a mission!

About Me

My hobbies are kind of scattered all over. I'm a hobbiest programmer and know several programming languages (My favorite is Python). I like to read Sci-Fi and Fantasy, (I liked Tolkien before it was cool. Actually, I think Tolkien was cool before I was born, so that's probably not true. But you never know, maybe I read Tolkien in the premortal life too.☺) and am working on a fantasy novel of my own. I also dabble a bit in digital art – Vector, Raster, and 3D; using programs like Blender, GIMP, and Inkscape – though I have to admit I'm not very good. And by not very good I mean really bad… Unfortunately for me, I also have Celiac Disease, which means I'm stuck on a gluten free diet for the rest of my life. Which is one of the reasons my religion gives me hope – when I'm resurrected and healed of all my infirmities, I'll be able to bite into a steaming, freshly baked loaf of bread. Or a doughnut. Or possibly a chocolate malt. Or licorice. Or… well, I should stop, I'm making myself jealous. (I say all that jokingly, but I'm serious too.)

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that has been faithful members for several generations, though I'd be lying if I said that made it easier. I've had more than my fair share of doubts and challenges to my beliefs. However, anytime I think of possibly joining a different religion, something just feels… not quite right. And no religion, well that feels even worse. Exacting as it may be on a person, the doctrine of this church just makes sense like nothing else does.

How I live my faith

I am getting ready to leave on a mission. (It's scary to think that, as of this writing, I only have four days left.) After I get out of the missionary training center, I'll be serving in the Kennewick, Washington mission. So, if you live anywhere near Kennewick, I might just be knocking on your door some time in the next two years. In a more general sense, I go to church. I read the scriptures. I keep God's commandments. I try to overcome my weaknesses. Being a member of this church requires a lot (including the aforementioned two-year mission), but I believe it will certainly be worth it.
