Hi I'm Dave Munson

Born in Nebraska, grew up in Colorado, and found the restored gospel of Jesus Christ when living in Connecticut. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I often wonder who I am. Do my experiences define me, or my actions? It seems I've been on a search my whole life for knowledge, various grade schools, high school, military schools, college classes and many and various training sessions thru out much of my life. Marriage I thought brought it all together, family. I was close and then came the LDS missionaries. For me it all came together, knowledge, love and peace. The world through opened eyes is glorious, family became eternal joy, knowledge became infinite. I gained peace. Life has become a path of infinite possibilities.

Why I am a Mormon

When the LDS Missionary's began teaching me the restored gospel I was naturally skeptical. I followed their instructions to read and pray to know the truth and found that I began to find more peace and greater happiness. The Spirit did testify to me that what they were saying was true. Following gospel principles has placed the burdens of a broken home and the poverty of my youth in the past where they belong. The inspirational leadership found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints constantly teaches me to be a better me. It's great, I know it's true and I'm grateful for the knowledge.

How I live my faith

The teachings of Christ are pretty simple, treat people well, be kind, be a good citizen, be honest, work hard, and many other good principles. The hard part is in the doing, people aren't always easy to be around. That is where faith starts, search out the scriptures and seek inspirational counsel. I have found that constant, frequent church attendance is critical. That's where I learn to understand the scriptures and gain inspirational insights that allow me to make good decisions throughout the week, and repent. For me a key to learning is teaching. As a teacher for the High Priest Group in my ward I've been able to come to a greater understanding of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What blessings can you receive from reading the Book of Mormon, the Bible, and other scriptures?

As I gave way to honest reading, studying and searching I came to know that the doctrine of Christ was true and that He would help me understand His words and guide my life. I testify that I have been blessed with knowledge and peace just as the scriptures promise. Show more Show less
