Hi I'm Dalton

I'm a cross country runner, a track runner, and a boating enthusiast. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a senior in high school (2015-16). I enjoy being involved as much as I possibly can be. I'm a member of the cross country and track teams, student government, and sterling scholar. I enjoy boating; specifically wake boarding, water skiing, and wake surfing. I also enjoy hanging out with friends, reading, and doing outdoor activities such as repelling and rock climbing. I report to the MTC for my mission in July.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the LDS faith. My parents and many generations of my family have been members. However, I don't stay a member of this church just because it is the way I was raised. I have learned for myself that the principles of the Gospel are true, and that this is Christ's church on the earth today, restored after it was lost from the Earth for centuries. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, that the Book of Mormon is the word of God, similar to the Bible, and that Joseph's translation of it is accurate. I know that eternal life and happiness in the presence of God can only be achieved through the ordinances and principles of this Gospel, and that those who didn't have the opportunity to hear it while living will still receive the opportunity to accept it. I am thankful for Jesus Christ, our Savior, and his amazing Atonement that he performed for all of us, that we might overcome death and sin. I know these things are true and I love them!

How I live my faith

I was a member of my stake youth committee that planned a multi-stake harvest festival. I was the chairman of my stake's committee that planned a new camp for the 12-18 year old boys of the stake. I am serving as a member of my school's seminary council. I help plan quarterly challenges, firesides/morning sides, and other activities for the high school students. We also encourage involvement in seminary and scripture reading. The 16-18 year old group of boys in my ward (priest's quorum) take turns providing the sacrament to a nearby assisted-living home. I also participate in home teaching, visiting assigned families in the ward on a monthly basis and trying to see to their needs.
