Hi I'm Derek

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married with two dogs and no kids. I love to go camping in the North Georgia Mountains. My hobby right now is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and it is soon to also be photography. I love watching and playing football and spending a lot of time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I became a Mormon because of my parents. As I became older, I realized how important it is for me to follow the teachings of Christ and knew that my happiness was dependent on it. I know that by living by these teachings that we can be happy independent of life's circumstances. I know it because I have had rough times in my life and have always found hope in my Savior.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be like Jesus Christ. I know I am not perfect but reading the scriptures and going to church help renew my desire to be like Christ and gives me that boost of confidence I need to know that I can live with my Father in Heaven.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Families are important because they are where a child begins to learn about Christ. Families have the most influence over a persons life. By being a family, we can support one another in important decisions that help us return to our Heavenly Father. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

It is expected of the young men to serve missions. They are not forced, nor given ultimatums, to go but are expected to go. It isn't to be looked at as a chore, but as a blessing and honor to serve to serve the Lord. Show more Show less
