Social media major round up!

Apologies for the lack of updates here at Something Bout Archie! Time to catch up on some of what we've missed!

Although we have missed a lot posting wise, I figured I would make a compilation post off ALL of David's social media postings! Some may be quite old news, but I figured I'd post them anyway!

Jorge and I went through a lot together during that time. Moments that were both rough and wonderful. It's always great seeing my companions from the mission and reminiscing on those unforgettable times. Congrats mi amigo on your marriage! All the best to you and your lovely wife as you take the next steps together in your future!

If someone isn't Christian like you, Muslim like you, or atheist like you, you can still find respect and love for each other. This is about knowing people can be loved and respected regardless of what you may or may not see eye to eye on. take time to understand them and listen. LoveLoud is about giving a voice and letting LGBTQ+ youth know that they belong. Too many people have taken their lives because they feel they don't belong, that they're misunderstood, and not loved because of what someone says is "different" about them and they believe they're not acceptable to keep living. Too often we think we can't love or respect because we don't agree on a belief or opinion. God heard (and hears) the prayers of the healthy and the leper, the poor and the publicans, prostitutes and beggars, Jews, gentile and Samaritans (along with the seemingly average typical citizen) and lifted them from where they were. He loved, respected, and spoke to everyone. Christ didn't teach conditional love. It is unconditional. His love has power to lift us and transform us. Whether you understand your neighbor's differences or not, look at the good and the light which exists in them because that's what we are each made from: God's light and power. There's more to each of us than one label. We were created by the same powerful almighty hands. This isn't about agreeing or disagreeing on differences, It's about respect even amongst differences. I want you to know that whoever you are, you have purpose, and you belong in this life. You are here to fulfill more than meets the eye. You are here to experience joy, to keep trying, to experience the pain and the heartache, to be a friend, to be grateful, and to search for truth and light. Each of us STILL plays a piece in this symphony of life and it's glorious. We all need a little help from our friends. We each need to feel loved and respected for what's within our heart and character. We all have equally been given this life because each of us has a loving Father in Heaven who gave us this chance. This life is about getting back up and giving it another shot. It's time to give the support you need to become all you are destined to be.

Amazing to see this, LoveLoud Fest going on in Utah Valley! The festival is to support and show love to the LGBTQ+ youth and community. So glad to see how far we've come here showing love to and accepting everyone regardless of their sexuality. Doesn't matter what makes someone different! I know there's been misunderstandings people have had on Mormon culture and the LGBTQ+ community, but we are all brothers and sisters y'all. If your neighbor is different from you, it doesn't mean you need to shun them. You can still build each other up even with differences in how you see things and the find common ground. Let's keep leaving the differences aside and build the unity because what makes you different doesn't make you any less-deserving to be loved, have a friend, and given strength to go through difficult things life has for all of us. @official_neontrees and my boys @imaginedragons are headlining and excited for them to hit the stage!

These past few days my mom had some days off of work and she wanted to take a trip to Canada to see #sherlockthemusical that our friend created and is playing in his hometown, Cardston. I took my two little sisters who also got work off and we got to see the beautiful view in Waterton, catch Sherlock—along with other local productions of Into the Woods (which we grew up watching on VHS) and The Music Man. We had a great road trip to Alberta! Even had some nice family time venturing in Helena, Montana as we had to wait a day for our car to get fixed. Haha. Huge thanks to our talented Sherlock friend Denny Burton, his awesome family and to everyone else who made it an unforgettable time! (I ended with a drawing my sister Jazzy made of us at a breakfast place). #roadtrip #alberta #canada #musicals #waterton #calgarytemple #cardston #helena #montana

This is the LDS temple in Bern, Switzerland. I had the chance to be here for a few days this week after finishing the Orion tour to accompany dear friends of mine for some special things—including a marriage ceremony. In LDS temples the marriage ceremony is different. Rather than "Til death do you part" the words are "for time and for all eternity." Mormons believe that families can be together forever, and who we are is so much more than starting just on our birthday and ending here with our death date. It expands to who we were before then and who we are after. If you know a Mormon or ever come across Mormon missionaries, you'll probably hear about this when they talk about the Plan of Salvation (or plan of happiness). It's one of the things I got to teach people for 2 years in Chile as a missionary. I'm grateful for the peace I feel here at temples, and the time I got to spend with my friends as I supported them in Switzerland. If you want to know more about what I'm talking about, you can check out Mormon.org and look up the beliefs. I know a lot of things are said about my beliefs, but there's no better way to learn the truth about someone or a religion than to talk to someone of that faith or go to the source. A lot of fears and misunderstandings get cleared and we can gain more respect for each other. I've loved getting to go with band members and crew of other beliefs to a catholic mass, hear a baptist sermon, hike or drive up a mountain and do some meditation, or attend a mosque during time of prayer. You gain so much more appreciation and love for others when you understand where someone comes from. So next time you see a Mormon or a Mormon missionary, you can tell them I told you to say hi and ask something about what us Mormons believe. ๐Ÿ˜‰ #Switzerland #Bern #LDS #Mormon #ontheroad #beliefs #learnsomethingnew #family
