Hi I'm Devin

I'm a college student. I am from the Midwest. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a small town in the Midwest. I went to a school with about 450 people in my high school. I love sports, camping, and music. I am currently attending college out of state and trying to figure out what professional area I want to pursue. I lived in Spain for two years and absolutely loved it and plan to return this spring.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a family where my parents were members. My father is a convert. This is not the reason that I have decided to continue in the Church. I have come to know that the things that I learned are true. For a long time, I saw others standing up and stating that the Church was true. I couldn't say that. I decided that I wanted to come to know for myself that the Church was true or I would find out what was. After a period of time, a confirming witness of the things that I already thought were true were so. This is a feeling that has changed my life. I can now stand and say that I know that the Church is true and Christ is the Savior.

How I live my faith

I try to live the small things in life. I say my prayers and read the scriptures, I attend church, I help others in need, and I give of my time. I spent quite a while teaching the younger children of the church. From ages of 7-11, I helped them (and they helped me) learn the teachings of Jesus Christ through example. I loved helping them and the things that I learned from them have helped me become a better person and member.

Are Mormons Christians?

Devin
I know many people that ask if Mormons are Christians. The answer is absolutely. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and that he died for us and was resurrected. He suffered for us and knows each of us personally. We can all come to know the Savior and through a sincere study of the beliefs of members of the church, you can come to know that we truly believe and that we try to emulate our Savior, Jesus Christ.

What do Mormons believe about Jesus Christ? Do Mormons believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God?

Devin
We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the promised Messiah. He is the Bread of Life and so many other things. He is the Savior of mankind. Through his example, we know what we need to do to receive eternal joy. Show more Show less
