Hi I'm David Thomson

I grew up in Washington state. I build custom wood furniture and things. I have a wife and 5 kids plus an adult foster daughter.

About Me

My parents divorced when I was 9 and my mom and I got baptized that year. We promptly moved away and stopped going to church. I started going to church again when I moved back to Utah to go to school. I met my wife Robin and we got married in the Salt Lake Temple. After several years of school, I worked in Software Quality Assurance for 13 years and now I have my own business building custom wood furniture and things.

Why I am a Mormon

My daughter passed away when she was 12. I can’t imagine not seeing her again and having her in my family. I know that Jesus has felt what I felt when she passed away. I know that by following his teachings and obeying the laws and ordinances of the gospel, my family including my daughter that passed away will be an eternal family together forever.

How I live my faith

My favorite calling in the church has been teaching the nursery age Kids. I love the 1.5 to 3 year olds so much. Now I am in the high priest group leadership and the wisdom I get exposed to every Sunday makes it my second favorite calling.
