Hi I'm Dallin

I'm Canadian, I'm a musician, I'm a mormon

About Me

I'm twenty years old and serving a full time mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Vancouver Washington area. Before my mission I enjoyed snowboarding, longboarding, fishing, hiking, writing and playing and performing in various musical groups from choirs to five piece rock groups. Since then, however, I've chosen to leave my figurative "nets" behind to pursue a path of service for the next couple of years.

Why I am a Mormon

There's a popurlar song that says, "There are hundreds of ways to get through the day, just find one." I've thought a lot about this lyric and have concluded that while it's a nice sentiment, it isn't true. There really are not hundreds of ways--at least not hundreds of ways that work--I know because I've tried several ways, to get through the day, and have come up empty handed and broken hearted. There is in fact, only one REAL way to get through the day and that is THE way, the truth, and the life--even Jesus Christ. Where every other way has come up short He hasn't. And He won't. I have felt Him buoy me up and strengthen me when I had nothing left to give. Because of this everything that He asks of me is worth it. That's why I'm here.

How I live my faith

Over time I have come to realize that faith really is an action word. I've seen and lived the differences between faith kept on a shelf and faith in application. I have applied my faith through teaching children in a church setting, volunteering at local food banks, and ultimately serving those around me from hitchhikers to homeless individuals to fellow family members and friends. It all really is a lifestyle and for me has come down to cultivating relationships and establishing a connection with others and then sharing with them the principals of the gospel that have changed my life.
