Hi I'm Darren

I'm a Mormon. I grew up in Brazil and now practice law in North Carolina.

About Me

 I am a father of four, and an attorney in Greenville, North Carolina. I love my family and my work. I grew up in Brazil, where my wife is from, and love Latin America. I love soccer and reading, but most of all I love my family spending time with them, traveling with them, and watching my kids grow.

Why I am a Mormon

 Because it brings clarity to the big questions in life such as why we are here and what we are meant to be doing while here. It helps me become a better person, and by living the principles I learn I am happier.

How I live my faith

 I am involved in the youth program of our region, and it is great to see the youth in action through service projects, or just having clean wholesome fun together. We have gone caving, camping, flown in airplanes, watched military reenactments, studied the Constitution, and many other activities.

Who was Joseph Smith?

He was the prophet who brought us the Church and the Book of Mormon, both of which have had an enormous effect on my life. The more I learn about him the more I appreciate him and what he did. Show more Show less

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

 Absolutely. Some of my favorite stories from the scriptures come from the Old Testament. The Bible also teaches us about the life of Jesus. How could it not be Holy Scripture? Show more Show less
