Hi I'm Devan

I'm a small town farmer, I mow lawns, I love sports, and I'm a Mormon!!!

About Me

Hi I'm Devan, I come from a family of 14. I'm the 6th child of 12 and we all get along great! I love to work out and stay in shape by working in the gym, playing sports, working on the farm and hiking around in the mountains. School has played a big part in my life. After my mission I plan on going to college and study to become a physical therapist. I have accepted to serve an LDS mission in Fresno California speaking Spanish and I'm loving every minute of it!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I simply did what missionaries ask everybody to do, pray to know for yourself. Nobody can make somebody believe or know if something is true or not. The only way anybody can come to know for themselves and have a true testimony that this is the only true church on the earth today and that the Book of Mormon is true, is by praying to our Father in Heaven with all their heart having real desire to know. God answers every prayer in his own time and in his own way, he didn't answer my prayers right away but over time, I began to see how the Gospel was changing my life and I could say that I was truly happy. I know this Gospel is true! It has blessed my life in so many different ways and it can bless other peoples life too if they take that step of faith and read and pray with ALL their heart and then act on the answer received.

How I live my faith

The more I study and learn about Jesus Christ I come to find that throughout his earthly ministry he went about giving service in various ways that would always help others feel a sense of gratitude and joy toward him. As I go through my every day life I try to find ways to be like him and give service to others in various ways also. As of now, I am serving an LDS mission in Fresno, California trying to help people find and strengthen their faith in Jesus Christ.

What is the Book of Mormon?

Devan
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It goes hand in hand with the Bible, each complimenting each other. They were both written by prophets during the same time period just different locations. The Bible was written by prophets in the Eastern hemisphere such as Jerusalem, and the Book of Mormon was written by prophets in the Western hemisphere such as the Americas. Jesus Christ died for all the world so, to give the whole world the same opportunity and knowledge of Him, he called prophets in all the world to teach the people what they should and shouldn't do, their writings are what we have today known as the Book of Mormon and the Bible.
