Hi I'm Dallin

I'm a brother, a son, and an uncle. I'm an average guy with incredible friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated from college and started working full-time in a new city. I'm incredibly grateful for all of the friends I have in my life, both from the present and from the past. I love meeting interesting people, I love sushi, and I love my family. I am a computer scientist by day, a Boy Scout leader by Wednesday nights, and at just about all other times part of a tightly-knit group of young single adults that belong to the Church. My life is busy just like everyone else, and I love it.

Why I am a Mormon

I guess you could say I've taken it for a test drive, and liked the features. I find the standards wise and liberating, I find the community warm and loving, and I find the doctrine to be true and eternal. I have lived it, and I love it, and I feel deep within my heart that this is what God wants for me, and for all of His children.

How I live my faith

In my own personal life, I take time to study the scriptures every day and to pray. That gives me the strength to not only live the standards that God wants me to, but to make myself stretch and be a better person - you know, more patient, more loving, more friendly. It's not easy every day, but it's that kind of person I want to be, and I feel like God does help me when I try. The Church has a lay ministry, which means that everyone is needed to make it all work. Right now I work as an adviser to the 12-13 year old boys, and also as an Assistant Scoutmaster in their Boy Scout troop. Working with those boys is both admittedly frustrating and incredibly rewarding. But each time I get upset about them not doing something that they know to be right, I think about how God must feel about me when I do the same, and it puts it into perspective for me.
