Hi I'm Dallin

I'm from Washington. I'm a rugby player. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have played rugby for ten years on just about every level. My parents have been divorced my entire life and any time I needed to get away from the drama I always went to the rugby pitch to just run and spend time with my teammates and have a good time. Rugby has always been an escape from the outside world, a place I could take out my aggressions and get some exercise, and focus on the moment, like making split second decisions and making the next move. I like the physical challenge of the game and the constant change of pace that requires you to think quickly.

Why I am a Mormon

I have chosen to be a member of this church because I have never felt more happier in any other setting. I love how welcoming and supportive the members are and the sense of belonging I feel when I'm at church or around other members. I know that this is where I'm supposed to be and I love this church.

How I live my faith

I have been preparing my whole life to serve a full time church mission. I have learned to love to serve others in a labor capacity as well as just being a friend to others when they need it. I feel that service is the sole purpose of a mission and I know that if I can do my part to help my community I know that I am on the right path. Jesus Christ devoted His life to serving others and blessing their lives, and I believe that because I'm a follower of Christ I should strive to make a difference and try to live like Him in every way I can no matter how little the action may be. By doing this I know that I can grow my faith and grow my testimony so that I can be the best missionary I can be.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Dallin
Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Later-day Saints or "Mormons" do not worship Joseph Smith. We believe that he was a prophet called of God to restore the gospel in this dispensation. We only worship God our Heavenly Father, His son Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost. We believe that Joseph Smith was a prophet much like Thomas S. Monson is our current prophet today.
