Hi I'm Derek

I'm a husband, father, small business owner and yes...I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Show Low Arizona and graduated from Gilbert High School. I attended Southern Utah University on a football and basketball scholarship. I graduated from Western International University. I served a mission for the LDS Church in Japan and love the Japanese people. I own a small business in Mesa. I love to talk politics and sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I enjoy helping others, in the LDS Church I have opportunities each week to serve members in my church and community. I appreciate the emphasis the LDS Church places on family and the important role it plays in our community and nation. I also enjoy the peace of mind knowing who I am, where I came from, and what I can expect after this life.

How I live my faith

I love spending time with my family and in my community. I've learned some of life's greatests lessons by reading the scriptures. I know, through my experiences, that prayer can help make for better day and ease the stress that life throws at you. I know when I'm helping others I'm living my faith.
