Hi I'm David Patterson

I grew up in Nebraska, I was heavily involved in our performing arts program, and I go to college at BYU-i.

About Me

I love to dance, I have been dancing since 7th grade. I go to BYU-Idaho, and I am loving it here! The environment that it creates is unforgettable, and my roommates and I have gotten so close this semester. I also love my family, spending time and hanging out with my family is always such a good experience. I recently received my mission call, and I will be serving in the Colombia Bogota North Mission. I report to the MTC February 10, 2015. I am ecstatic to serve the Lord in the Spanish language, and start this new phase in my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because this is the true church of Jesus Christ. As I converse with God, and read my scriptures daily, my knowledge that this Church is true grows stronger everyday. I love the way that this church focuses so strongly on the family. Being a Mormon, for me, is the path that I've chosen to take because it has made me truly happy. It is the path to happiness.

How I live my faith

I am currently a Sunday school teacher. When I teach, I love to feel the spirit. I have a great support system when teaching, and I have so many sources available at my fingertips.
