Hi I'm Dave Gravis

I'm a husband, father, social worker, relationship coach, professional counsellor, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love helping others and assisting them to identify their strengths and abilities. Seeing people grow through making wise choices is very rewarding. I also enjoy music, because it is a great way to connect with others and can bring us peace and inspiration when we are struggling with a particular challenge. I love to write and tell stories because everyone enjoys hearing a really good story and once in a while we can learn something new about who and what we can become by listening to the experiences of others.

Why I am a Mormon

Some the most important things in life are knowing who you are and why you are here and where you will go when your life on earth is complete. Before I joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints I had very a basic understanding of these things but I lacked perspective. Children always want to know the "why" behind how things really work, like why the sky is blue or why they have to wait so long for their next birthday. Adult are not all that different. Gaining a testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ gave me real answers and more, it helped me see the bigger picture and to understand why I should place my trust in God and keep His commandments. I learned for myself that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ are real and that we can receive personal revelation for ourselves regarding gospel truths through the power of the Holy Ghost.

How I live my faith

I love to serve others and I'm currently teaching a class in church about Strengthening Marriage. I also work part-time as an affiliate with LDS Family Services. My private practice is called LDS Family Solutions and I reside in Hamilton, Ontario.
