Hi I'm David

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married with two young children--a girl and a boy. I am an attorney practicing in the area of insurance defense. I enjoy biking, playing musical instruments, and spending time with my family. I am an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Latter-day Saint because I have felt the power of the Holy Ghost confirm to me that the Book of Mormon is true, that Joseph Smith was called of God, and that Jesus Christ has restored His original Church in our day. I know this because I asked Heavenly Father in prayer if these things are true. The message that God lives and that we can return to live with Him through Jesus Christ resonates with me.

How I live my faith

Every day I try to remember Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. I read inspired writings from prophets past and present. I pray with my family in the morning, at meal times, and before bed. I strive to keep all of God's commandments, even when it is inconvenient, difficult or unpopular. I seek the Lord's forgiveness when I fall short, and trust that through His sacrifice I will be forgiven. I look for opportunities to help and serve others I meet throughout the day.

Do Mormons practice polygamy?

Are Mormons Christians?

David
Depends on whom you ask. If you ask a faithful Latter-day Saint, the answer will be "yes". The arguments that I've heard against our being Christian are that we believe in the Book of Mormon (Another Testament of Jesus Christ); we believe that God the Father and Jesus Christ are two separate beings with physical, glorified bodies of flesh and bone; we believe that Joseph Smith was called of God in our time as a prophet; etc. The short answer is "yes", we are Christians. I would even go so far as to say we are the only Christians; that is, we are the only church that Christ has given his priesthood authority. If a Christian is a disciple of Christ, then we are certainly striving to be Christians. Certainly, other churches help and serve in ways that are admirable. There are good people everywhere in the world. However, Heavenly Father is a God of order, not chaos. He has established one faith, one church, and one baptism. There are not several roads that lead to His Kingdom; there is one. We all can receive a witness from the Holy Ghost that we are on that one path that leads to eternal happiness. Show more Show less
