Hi I'm Derek.

I'm an adventure-seeker, a swimmer, a dreamer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Derek Muñoz. I am currently serving a 2 year-mission in Chicago Illinois among the Spanish people, and although it's hard, I LOVE it! I'm a seeker of adventures. My friends and I enjoy playing board games and going to the park to play games that bring us back to our childhood. I love to do things that bring my friends and I together in a unique way. Not many people at 21 respond "I'm going to play capture the flag at the park with my friends" when asked "what are you doing this weekend?" I'm an athlete. I love to swim and play water polo, as well as basketball and soccer. I tell people that I'm well rounded and i can do good at many different sports, my sister tells me then that means i'm not great at any of them! Haha she may be right.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a mormon because it is what makes me happy. I have seen the difference in life when you follow the teachings of Christ, and when you don't. There is nothing that makes me feel better than when I can say I'm trying to be the best person that I can be.  Most of all, I'm a mormon because I know it is true. Everyone has their searching to do to find truth. Even though I was born into a practicing mormon family, EVERYONE needs to find out if it is true for themselves. And the answer I've recieved is that it is.

How I live my faith

 I live my faith one day at a time! This life can be very difficult, but there is hope when we take it slow, one challenge at a time.
