Hi I'm Devon

I go to college, play drums, and grew up in New Mexico. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 24 years old and currently living in UT. I am attending college with a major in Communications and studying Broadcast Journalism. I was married in July 2010 and my wife and I both attend the same college. I served a mission from 2005-07 in Columbus, Ohio. It was a great experience. I enjoy playing soccer and drums as well as playing a fair share of video games like Starcraft 2 and FIFA 10. I also love watching Planet Earth and Life.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born as a Mormon but had to learn for myself if it was true as I got older. One summer, I took some serious time to study the Book of Mormon and really get into it. As I finished it, I took Moroni's advice to pray about it. As I knelt and prayed by myself in my room that day and asked my Father in Heaven if the book was true, I felt the spirit of the Holy Ghost fill my body. I felt great and happy. I knew without a doubt it was true and wanted to share that with the whole world which is why I served a mission in Ohio for 2 years. Every time I read the Book of Mormon, I still pray to know if it is true and feel the spirit every time. I love the Book of Mormon and know that it truly testifies of Jesus Christ as our Savior.

How I live my faith

I attend church each week and visit a few families in my ward each month which is called Home teaching. Home teaching really helps a ward to be united and to reach out and care for each other. Both the teacher and the person being visited are benefited greatly by this. I am also in charge of organizing and printing a program for each Sunday service that includes who is speaking that day, which hymns we are singing, and other special announcements that members need to know about during that week.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Many of God's prophets that were here on the ancient Americas. The prophets kept the records from around 600 BC until 400 AD. The teachings in the Book of Mormon are similar to those found in the Bible because it is still the same gospel of Jesus Christ.   Show more Show less
