Hi I'm David

I live in New Hampshire and program computers. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I joined the Church as a 19 year old college student. I was introduced to the Church by my high school sweet heart. She ended up marrying someone else but we remained friends for life because we had our faith in common. I spent years as an air traffic controller and I am now a software engineer. I have 7 adult children, three of who live in Australia and 7 grandchildren. My wife and I love to travel and spend time together.

Why I am a Mormon

As I grew up as an "Army brat" I always attended the post church services. When I was introduced to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the Book of Mormon, everything I had been taught up to that time suddenly made more sense. The fact the the Lord actualy appeared to Joseph Smith and provided him the authority to restore His Church to the earth again is just what I needed to hear. My study and prayer over the years has cemented my knowledge that this Church his indeed the Lord's true Church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

Church attendance is a big part of every week. I love being with other Church members to learn more about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Helping others is much easier as a follower of Christ. As I do as He would do, spending my time helping those in need with just the little things give me a great feeling. Over the years I have been asked to serve in the Church by teaching classes, working with teenagers, assiting in leading congregations and visiting widows and older members.

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

Years ago, long before there was much medical research or evidence, the Prophet Joseph Smith revealed guidance that encourages us to avoid alcohol, tobacco and illegal drugs while at the same time eating plenty of fruits and vegatables along with some meat. By doing so we have been promised heath and a closer relationship with the Lord. The longer I live, the more I can see the real "wisdom" in the Word of Wisdom. Show more Show less
