Hi I'm Derrick

I was raised in the mountains, and now live by the beach. I like video games and vigorous debates. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

 I have lived in Utah, Ohio, New York, Kentucky, Israel, Washington D.C., England, and California. I work as an attorney, and I love my family. My wife and I have three small children who are the focus of our lives. In the few minutes that aren't taken up by family, work, or church, I like to read, play video games, and watch uplifting TV shows and movies with my beautiful wife.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have a testimony of Jesus Christ. I have spent time in Israel, have studied the scriptures, and I know that Jesus Christ is my savior. I also know, in the same way, that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is Christ's church. I know God loves me, and that, showing that love, he sent his Son to die for me. I know that He has not left us alone, but that he still communicates to us individually and through his servants, including his prophet, Thomas S. Monson.

How I live my faith

I try to be honest in everything I do. I strive to be a good example for my children. I express my gratitude to my Heavenly Father for all of my many blessings, especially the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ.
