Hi I'm Elder Devin Wright

I'm a musician, a photographer/videographer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of four, a Mother, a Father, and a sister. :) I love all music and LOVE musical theater. I'm a classically trained vocalist and attended college as a Vocal Performance major. (but I've discovered I don't enjoy performing classical music... It's lovely to listen to... but just not what I want to do... however I love the contemporary rock/indie rock voice. (and even... wait for it... post-hardcore!) I also play guitar, bass, ukulele, and dabble in piano, mandolin, and drums. I love to write music and actually have been writing for a few years now. I write all the music, sing, and play guitar in an indie rock/alternative/post-hardcore band called Hushwreck. I have recently picked up photography and started making videos as well. I hope to one day major in Music Recording and Technology at BYU. But, maybe I'll major in Film and hopefully make movies, or music videos, or both! And LDS Films too! I haven't decided! But I don't have to worry too much till I'm home from my mission! I truly believe that music speaks to the soul. I know this because my most spiritual moments are accompanied by wonderful music. I want to share with people my love for music and show that you can have wholesome music to listen to... and it will still be "cool!" Also, most of all I want to write music that touches the hearts of people, helps invite the holy spirit into their lives, and bring them closer to our Heavenly Father; just as music has done for me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church, but that's not why I'm a Mormon. I'm a Mormon because I choose to be. I've gained my testimony over a long period of time. I know that when my life is in harmony with the teachings of the gospel I am completely happy and my burdens are made light. I also know that the same goes for anyone living the gospel of Christ no matter how grave their burdens may be. I know that through constant spiritual preparation, reading the scriptures, going to church, fasting on a regular basis, and meaningful prayer; our Heavenly Father opens our minds to all the wonders of the universe so that we may "know all things." I am a mormon because I have received my own personal witness that this is in fact the true church of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a full-time missionary in the Brazil, São Paulo East Mission and I´ve previously served for 11 months in the Utah, St George Mission waiting for my Visa to Brazil. I was the Gospel Principles Teacher, a Ward Missionary, and a Chorister in my ward at home. I strive to be the best example I can be and be as Christ-like as I possibly can. I strive to be the "go to" guy when someone needs a nice friend. :) This work is NOTHING without love. I love to serve the Lord and look forward to loving and serving Him forever! And with Faith... We can do ANYTHING!
