Hi I'm Dave Christenson

I am a husband, a father, an attorney, and an Navy officer. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am husband to an amazing beautiful woman, and a father to a wonderful little boy. I enjoy traveling, scuba diving, hiking and paddle boarding.

Why I am a Mormon

I have gained a testimony of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through personal scripture study, church attendance, and service in the Church. I have come to see the fulfillment of the promise that Jesus made to the Pharisees who challenged his claim as the Messiah "If any man will do his will, he shall know the doctrine, whether it be of God or whether I speak of myself." (John 7:17). I know that this is the gospel of Jesus Christ, I know that he is my Savior and that through the miracle of his atonement I can be forgiven of my sins, and become like my Savior. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and his divine sacrifice. I know that as I strive to keep the commandments, repent, and exercise my faith in the Lord, I will live again with him, and my family after death. I know these things through the power of study, and prayer, and by the whisperings of the spirit to my heart.

How I live my faith

I serve as a counselor to our bishop, as such I assist in teaching lessons on Sundays, organizing service projects for our members in the community, and chaperoning our youth at dances, campouts, and other activities.
