Hi I'm Dallin

I'm a soccer player. I'm a future politician and attorney. I'm a piano man. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have just graduated high school and I plan to serve a mission to Alabama. Afterward I plan to attend Brigham Young University to major in Political Science and a minor in Asian Foreign Languages. I also hope to attend law school and work my way from local to national politics. I enjoy playing soccer, the piano, and drawing. I particularly love hanging out with my friends because I do not like being lonely.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and I am thankful for my parents and their loving example. I choose to follow Jesus Christ because I know that He is the true source of happiness. I continue to follow the Gospel because it brings me happiness every day, and it will bring me happiness for every day to come. I can't think of any other lasting source of joy than Jesus Christ and his Everlasting Gospel. I know that there is no other way to be truly happy. I know that the Church is true because I have been shown that it is true through the joy and love that I have experienced by following Jesus Christ and striving to become more like Him.

How I live my faith

In my community, I work at a local grocery store known to most of my neighbors. I am a cashier and an attendant for the Self-Checkout at the Clinton Maceys. Many of my neighbors come in to the store and see me there. I also home teach with my dad to families in my neighborhood. I also participated in AYSO community soccer and have done so for the past ten years.

Are there restrictions based on race or color concerning who can join The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and have the priesthood?

There aren't any race or color restrictions pertaining to church membership and priesthood authority. We invite all to come unto Christ, not just certain ethnicities. Everyone is entitled to the love that Our Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ offers us, and no racial roadblock is going to keep God's children away from the truth of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.
