Hi I'm Dakota

I grew up in Holladay, Utah and graduated from East High School. I love running and being outdoors and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to run and do it almost every day. It helps me keep in touch with the spirit and always makes me feel better after. I plan to run in college after serving my mission and can't wait to continue hunting, fishing, camping and almost every other outdoor activity when I get back from this amazing opportunity.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a mostly inactive family but was baptized when I had just turned 9. In high school I got way off the right path until my senior year. I met a friend who I am very thankful for. She probably doesn't know it but because of her Christ like example I chose to read the Book of Mormon so I could find out how to be as amazing as she was. As I read the book in December of 2013 I instantly knew the book was true as it was coming to an end in Moroni Chapter 10. I had never felt the spirit so strongly in my entire life. I wanted to be that better person that my friend was and began going back to church. After a month or so I realized to become a better person I needed to go on a mission so I could help others realize what things are really important in this life just like my friend helped me. I don't really know how I'm going to do it yet because I haven't been going to church for very long but I do know that I have a loving Heavenly Father who cares and will help me every step of the way.

How I live my faith

I love going to church every Sunday even though my family won't come with me. I always feel peace, support and love when I'm at the church. I love living by my Heavenly Father's commandments because they keep me happy and keep me closer to Him.
