Hi I'm David Stoddard

I live in Texas. I love the outdoors and sports. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is David. I love doing outdoor activities like hiking, fishing, and camping. I worked at a scout camp for 3 summers. I also love sports. I've played a lot of sports such as: lacrosse, football, soccer, baseball, basketball, water polo, and ultimate frisbee. I recently attended Brigham Young University, and now am serving as a missionary in the Alaska, Anchorage mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon. I have read the Book of Mormon and I prayed to know if it was true. And I was able to get a witness from the Holy Ghost that those things were true. I love Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and I am so grateful for them and the atonement. Without Jesus we would be lost and be unable to return to our Father in Heaven.

How I live my faith

One way I live my faith is I teach lessons to the youth on Sundays. As I prepare the lessons it helps me learn, and also grow closer to my Heavenly Father.
