Hi I'm David

I'm a musician, I take care of people that can't take care of themselves anymore and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play Jazz, Soul, Funk, Rock and yes, Classical music. I am a C.N.A. (Certified Nursing Assistant) I help take care of those that are mentally ill, or are unable to achieve activities of daily life. Right now while I'm working and I have been called to serve in the Illinois Chicago West Mission. When I get back I plan on attending college and to try and achieve a double major in Medicine and Music. I love helping people in any way I can. That's part of the reason I want to become a doctor. I want to go to other countries and build hospitals and help the doctors there to be able to help their own people. I also love the effect that music can have on people, and how it can connect with them in the most personal way. Yes, music and medicine seem to be polar-opposites, but they can heal people in ways that are unimaginable.

Why I am a Mormon

The reason why I continue to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is because it gives me peace and happiness. Just as others have gone through, I had a bit of a rough patch growing up. I wasn't really sure what I wanted to do with myself or why I was even here. For a while, I felt totally and completely alone. Yes, I had caring parents and friends that tried to help cheer me up and make me smile, but that smile was just on the outside. On the inside, I was miserable and depressed. It finally got to a point where I felt like God wasn't real and that He didn't care about me. To be honest, I didn't even know if He really even existed. I had finally reached my rock bottom, I didn't know what to do, the only thing I could think of, was to get down on my knees and pray...and pray...and pray some more. There was no shining light or loud thunder. The only thing I felt was, relief. It took me a while to realize that God hears our prayers, and answers them in His timing. It is always there to help no matter how deep, or how hard you have fallen. There is absolutely nothing that anyone can do, that would make Him stop loving you. I know that is true with all my heart, mind and soul.

How I live my faith

My current calling in my ward is the Choir Director. Many think it's a bit strange considering I just graduated high school and am preparing for a mission. Most choir directors have a bit more experience than me, but I've always had an ear for music. More so, making the music mean something more than just ink on a page. I like to put the emotion in there and make anyone who hears it learn and feel something.
