Hi I'm David

I am a husband. I am a father and this summer I will become a grandfather! I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up on a ranch in Canada. I studied finance in university. I married an amazing city girl and had two sons. I worked as a financial analyst for large corporations in Michigan and then walked away from the corporate world to raise my children back on the ranch in Canada. I love to travel with my family. I love to cook. I loved everything about raising my two boys. I love all of my nieces and nephews like crazy and I am so excited to become a grandpa that I can hardly breath! Our first grandchild is on the way! I am amazed that such an amazing girl would marry my oldest son!

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and grandparents were amazing examples of faith and sacrifice. They all served in regular and amazing ways. I was taught to pray and love the scriptures. I felt the spirit many times in my youth and when I faced challenges I knew where to turn for help. I knew that my Heavenly Father loved me and watched over me. One day when I was around ten years old I was riding my motorcycle, I felt a warning in my mind not to take a certain trail on the ranch. I did not listen to the prompting and a few seconds later I crashed through a barbed wire gate. I was all bloody and laying on my back on the trail gasping for breath. A voice spoke to my mind "I told you not to go this way. I told you not to go this way". I recognized that I had been warned and that God knew and cared about me. It was a painful way to learn a few important truths that still helps me today. I love Jesus Christ for saving me and helping me to recover each time I fall. I love serving Him in His church. I love the Bible and Book of Mormon, I need them everyday. I love to be in the temple. I love listening to the prophet and the apostles. I love my mom.

How I live my faith

My favorite place in all the world is our home. We built it ourselves on the ranch with a beautiful view of a river valley. I love being at home with my wonderful wife and our little family. We have dedicated our home and ourselves to the Lord. We have promised to do all we can to keep the Holy Ghost in our home. We love to have parties and large family dinners. I especially love Sunday evenings at home with family. The sabbath is a delight to me. I love to rest from all the stresses of farming and ranching and feel the spirit. I love to listen to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Our goal is to make our home like the temple.
