Hi I'm Dakota A. Maughan

I am currently serving a mission in the California Riverside mission. I grow up in South Carolina with my family.

About Me

I wrestled in High school, and ran cross country. I love the outdoors and doing technical sports such as kayaking, scuba diving, rock climbing and mountain biking. I also really enjoy working of car's and motorcycle. I found my love for working things when I got my first car. A 1997 Honda civic, which had a few miner problems. I had the drive and motivation for fix the problems myself, so I learned everything I could through YouTube and my our experimenting. Long story short my new hobby was born. From that point I have rebuilt several engine's and fully rebuild and custom painted a motorcycle. I now plan on pursuing a career in Engineering, hoping to Engineer the assembly line for cars.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I have found true happiness in this church. As well as I know for myself that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored through Joseph Smith, that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ and though studying it we can come to know Christ better. I am a Mormon because I have revised my our personal witness that this is God church established on Earth once again.

How I live my faith

I live my faith though everything I do. I am always trying to become better and grow in my knowledge of the scriptures. As well as putting my faith in action, I strive to always live my life in the way my Heavenly Father would have me live. By keeping the commandments, and by being Christlike to everyone I meet.
