Hi I'm Dallin

I grew up in a family of 8, in different parts of the western United States and we finally settled in a place called Newman Lake.

About Me

I grew up Ina family of 8. One older brother, one younger and three younger sisters. We all grew up in a town called Newman Lake Washington just 20 minutes out of Spokane. Living on a lake and close to the forest life was pretty interesting. We did a lot of outdoor things. I love knee boarding and wake boarding and getting thrown off the tube every once in a while. My parents have a farm as well that we would help out on. We had all sorts of different animals whether it was cows, horses, sheep, pigs. I would say the thing I enjoy most is music. I love listening to really any kind of music and just relaxing. Although I don't know how to play much music I love listening and expressing myself through music.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a mormon!! I grew up in this church and was raised in it. I never had a real knowledge for myself that it was true. There was a time in my life when I didnt go to church and I felt at this time I was the most lost and confused. I had to make a decision as to what would make me most happy in this life. I found there was a lot of things in this world that can bring instant happiness but how long does it last a couple hours maybe? Well there was a way to bring everlasting happiness and it was The Church of Jesus Christ of Ladder Day Saints. I am still working towards being the best I can, I am not perfect and make mistakes everyday, but this church and the knowledge we receive and knowing we are Gods children can bring us happiness. "True happiness doesn't come from things we have, but it comes from things we are willing to give up to be happy"

How I live my faith

I try to be an example to others as much as I can. As Jesus Christ set an example and was perfect I strive to be like him. I know I will probably never be perfect because I make a lot of mistakes I can still try as hard as I can and do all the things in which we are asked to do. Right now I am a missionary for the church serving in the Illinois Chicago West Mission. I think being a missionary is the best way I can set an example at this time in my life. Helping others receive the restored gospel and doing service work for the people in the community.
