Hi I'm Dalton

Born in Norway, but lived also in France, the US, Germany, Singapore and Switzerland and now in Southern England (Plymouth)!

About Me

Since about 2 years ago, I have loved everything to do with playing the guitar. I love good books, good theatre, good movies, writing well, good music and good (Indian) food :) I have lived in various countries my whole life, living a maximum of 4 years in a single country. I speak English and French fluently, as well as intermediate German and conversational Mandarin Chinese. In short, I am an LDS TCK, or Latter-day Saint Third-Culture Kid!

Why I am a Mormon

This is an easy question to answer: because I was raised a Latter-day Saint and baptized at 8 years old. Also, our whole family has moved around to various countries for over 20 years and the Church community has always been the first proper welcome we've received wherever we've ended up. Why I am still a Mormon is a more important question for me to answer; I have a strong belief in the righteous purpose of Jesus Christ and his Church, and I have a testimony of missionary work. My parents have told me that every single blessing in their lives and their children's lives has been a result of their missions. I have seen my two older siblings get called to utterly different missions, and the impact that their work has had on others and myself greatly influenced me to get called on a mission. I know now that this is the reason I've lived in the Church thus far, because it has already changed me for the better. More importantly, it has allowed me to help others change for the better.

How I live my faith

I try every day to develop Christ-like attributes, or at least a Christ-like character. That is to say, whenever I endure trials, I try to turn outward and perform service instead of focusing inward. Still working on it! But, as Elder Holland once said, "Let's not let perfection get in the way of getting better."
