Hi I'm David

I was raised in Cache Valley, Utah. I love my family and I love Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a son to a loving mother and father and a brother to five siblings. Throughout my life I have enjoyed coming closer to my family through playing games and spending time with them. I have always loved participating in sports, but I especially enjoy competitive Ultimate Frisbee. I love music. I have spent a few years learning the trumpet and have quite enjoyed that. I don't play the piano well, but my heart loves to hear someone good tickle the ivories. I have enjoyed all of my relationships with friends, and feel that I have been blessed to build true friendships.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it helps to enter into the rest of God. Through prayer I have been able discover the truth of Jesus Christ our Savior. I know that he lives and that he loves us. I'm so grateful for his atonement so that I can have comfort in my sorrows and keep on trying in my failures. I have also felt a confirmation of the truth of the Book of Mormon. I know my place in life and that is a wonderful feeling of peace. I would be lost without this Gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith in multiple ways. One way is attending my church meetings once a week on Sunday, the Lord's Sabbath. At these meetings I am able to partake of the sacrament and remember the Savior's Atonement and ponder on how I can improve my life to be more like his. It is blessed and prepared by those holding the priesthood authority of God. After the sacrament I attend two different types of Sunday School classes where I can learn and review gospel doctrine. Once a month I visit a few families in our ward(our congregations) with another member of the ward. This practice is called home teaching. When we home teach we visit the families to see how they are doing, find out if they need help with anything, and exhort them to continue praying and coming closer to Jesus Christ. I try to live my life according to the commandments of God so that I can be worthy of a temple recommend. With a temple recommend I can enter our temples and take part in sacred covenants which bring me closer to God. I will shortly be serving a two year mission in Texas to help bring others closer to Jesus Christ.
