Hi I'm David Waddoups

I grew up in Idaho. I love the outdoors. My family and friends are number one in my life. and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love hanging out with my friends and especially my family. One of my favorite places on earth is on top of mountains and it doesn't matter how i get there, Whether its by dirt-bike, snowmobile, truck, or hiking. I love pretending like i know things about trucks and attempting to work on my own. I played football in high school and i enjoy lots of sports. I am the youngest of 7 kids and have a lot of nieces and nephews who i love to play with.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in a family who were all mormons and I was baptized at age 8. I have seen this Gospel bless my family in more ways than i can count. I have come to know the truth of the Book of Mormon by following a promise that an ancient prophet gives us, I simply asked. I asked God if the Book of Mormon was true and if Joseph Smith truly is a prophet and i received my answer. It was a simple answer and it came by the power of the Holy Spirit and i now know that this gospel is true without a doubt. I know that everyone can receive that same answer that i received. This Gospel will bring Eternal happiness to anyone who chooses to follow it I know it!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying always to fulfill my duties as a member of the church. I love going home teaching and looking out for the welfare of those i visit. I try to always look for those that are in need of some help and try to always be willing to give my time to help them. I always try to be example to everyone, but especially to my nieces and nephews. I know Jesus Christ is the perfect example and i always try to follow his example and have the true love for all of God's children that i know Christ has. I live my faith by studying the words of God and trying to apply them to my life daily.
