Hi I'm Dave

I work in a family business, I am a grandpa, I like to run, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I enjoy training and running half marathons. I like to build furniture with scrap lumber. I enjoy four wheel drive off roading. I enjoy backpacking and fishing. I have been married to my sweetheart for 31 years. I am a father of four children and I am a grandpa to six.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. So, I was raised as a member. I grew up living my faith and through sincere study and prayer I gained for myself a witness that this is the gospel of Jesus Christ. Because of my conviction, I served for two years as a missionary in Portugal. I was blessed to live the culture, speak the language and love the Portuguese people. My life has not been free of heartache and disappointment, but I have always felt that my Father in Heaven knows me and loves and is pleased with my best efforts. I have never felt abandoned by God. He is always there for me. I enjoy a loving and trusting relationship with my Father in Heaven and His Son Jesus Christ that brings peace and joy to me everyday.

How I live my faith

I voluntarily serve in the church as a leader. I love to serve more than 3700 people in that organization. It is very rewarding for me to help people succeed in their lives and with their families as they try to be more like Jesus Christ. I am grateful to be able to help them succeed in their pathway to happiness.
