Hi I'm Derek

I'm a Mormon and it's awesome!

About Me

I love to be outside. Hunting, fishing, and camping. I love it all. I love to learn, it has grown on me quite a bit in my life. Sports are also a big part of my life. Hockey, football, and rugby.......some good physical sports. Running and working out are also a big part of my life. I like to stay in shape. I like to view my body like a car. Depending on what fuel you put into and how you take care of it will all affect the performance of the vehicle. So I like to take care of myself as best as I can. Eating right and staying fit. In high school I was able to train as an EMT and also work in the field of Sports Medicine by taking care of athletes. I love to live life the best I know how.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I choose to be one, not because someone forced me to. Earlier in my life I was not happy being a Mormon. I hung out with people where it was not the cool thing to do or just socially unpopular. I did things that were not in harmony with the teachings of Jesus Christ. Eventually everyone has to find their own faith. I was at a point in life where I had to decide if God existed or not. Of course everyone told me he did, but I never really found out for myself. So while in this really hard point in my life I decided to pray, I mean really pray to know if God cared about me. As I did so,I received an answer from Him. I know He cares about me and that he has a place for me in this life. I specifically prayed to know if The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was His true church. I believe it is and I know it is. I'm a Mormon because I know it's the right place to be and that it is God true church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by my actions. How I live my faith is how I represent what I stand for and what I live for. I try to be an example by showing others what it means to be a Mormon. I live my faith by the teachings of Jesus Christ and his example he set for us. I'm not perfect but I try to be the best I can be by being an example of my faith. I will show you my faith by my works like it says in the scriptures.
