Hi I'm Deven

I'm a singer, I'm an actor, I'm the oldest of seven brothers, and I"m a mormon

About Me

My name is Deven. I am serving a mission in Las Vegas Nevada and I love every minute of it! Before being a full-time servant of the Lord, I was living in Oregon. I love to sing and do musical theater. I was Jean Valjean in "Les Miserables", Schroeder in "Your a Good Man Charlie Brown", a Shriner in "Bye Bye Birdie", and National Champion in Solo Music Theater in 2009. Music is my life and I do everything I can to share the talent that God has given me. I have a strong belief in using the gifts we have been given. In the scriptures we read about how we all have been given precious talents. If we use them, and allow them to grow, and we are blessed tremendously! However, if we don't use our talents, and hide them from the world, then they will be taken away. We all have been given talents of some kind. It is our job to find them, improve them, and let them grow!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Chruch of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, but that does not mean that my testimony of the truthfulness of the gospel was given to me. I had to work to get it. Growing up, I always believed in God and Christ and that our church was lead by a prophet who was called by God, just as it has always been. But when my testimony was challenged by my friends, I stopped and asked the question that many have asked, " Is everything I believe in true, or is it a lie?" So I prayed, I read the scriptures, I went to church. I did everything that I could to learn and grow spiritually. Over time, my testimony grew, just like a plant. It took time, patience, love, and persistence, but soon it was a beautiful plant and I knew without a doubt that this church IS true, we ARE lead by a prophet called by God, God DOES love me and Christ DID die for me. I felt this was true so much that I wanted to share it with everyone, so I chose to serve a mission. I pray that I will be able to show people the truth because it has brought so much happiness to me and I know that it will bring great joy to everyone who learns and listens to what the missionaries have to share.

How I live my faith

Right now, I live my faith be sharing it! I spend all my time as a missionary striving to share my testimony with others so that they too can feel the love I have for my Savior and they too can come to a knowledge of how Chirst's message can truely bless there lives.

Are Mormons Christians?

Deven
Absolutly we are! Our church is called the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Surely, with Christ's name in our church name this would be obvious. Often times we are refered to as Mormons simply because of the Book of Mormon, which is a book of scripture compairable to the Bible, but not replacing it. The book of Mormon supports the Bible and, most importantly, Jesus Christ, He being our Saviour and Redeemer. We have a deep faith in Christ and all that we do is centered in following His footsteps as closely as possible. Show more Show less
