Hi I'm Del.

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a dad and love spending time with my family. I love spending time outdoors - in the mountains or on the beach, or just in my backyard. I love working with youth and spend a lot of time working with them as a volunteer.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents taught me from a very early age the Gospel of Jesus Christ, His love and sacrifice for us, and about God's plan of happiness for all of us. This has always been a great source of hope and strength for me in my life. I have had my share of tragedy and have made my share of mistakes. I am so very grateful for the atonement of my Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, that satisfies all the demands of justice and extends to me mercy and hope. This knowledge has helped me and strengthend me throughout my life, and I feel a desire to share this message with everyone I know. The Savior's atonement is available to all the human race - none are excluded. This good news has been restored in its fullness in these last days through the means of a prophet named Joseph Smith. Since his time, we have had living prophets and apostles - to give us leadership and guidance, all because of God's great love for His children all over the world. Our prophet today is Thomas S. Monson, and through him and the 12 apostles, Jesus continues to lead His church today, until we all come to a unity of faith. We are so blessed to have God's word in the Bible as well as the Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ. We have other scriptures as well, as the beautiful gospel truths are revealed to living prophets and given to us for our use and benefit.

How I live my faith

I help to organize youth activities and events, service projects, and teach and train youth to be leaders of tomorrow. I also help to train other adult leaders of youth to give them more meaningful experiences and programs. I take my family to visit and do service for other families in the community -regardless of what their faith may be. I volunteer my time and donate to various shelters and non-profit organizations in my community. I am politically active and try to help good, honest people get elected to offices in our government. I also work hard at my job and give my employer an honest day's work and do my best to be fair and honest in all my dealings. Although I'm not perfect, I try hard to follow the example of my Savior Jesus Christ and treat others the way He would treat them.

Are Mormons Christians?

Del.
We believe that Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of God and is the Savior and Redeemer of the world. His is the only name given under heaven whereby men may be saved. "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." People who are unfamiliar with our beliefs may be told that we are not Christians, or that we believe in some other Jesus, but the more you learn about us, the more you will understand how very deeply we believe in and love and accept Jesus Christ as our Savior, our Redeemer, our Deliverer, our all. I invite you to come and learn all you can about what we believe, then make up your own mind about whether we are Christian. I stand as a witness of Him. I know that He lived a perfect life - an example to us all. He taught us how to love and how to live. He suffered terrible grief and pain, then willingly gave His life as a sacrifice to pay the price of our sins, and to learn how to give us comfort and help in our hour of need. He died, then was resurrected and He lives today! He knows us today and is acquanted with our circumstances. He loves us in a very real and personal way. I love Him, too, and am excited and anxious to see Him face to face and thank Him personally for all He has done for me and for all of us. Show more Show less
