Hi I'm Derald (D. R.)

I'm a Mormon. I grew up on a farm in a small town in Southern Utah, Richfield.

About Me

I was raised on a small farm in Utah and have spent most of my adult life in California and Colorado. I have always had a love of nature and the mountains around our farm allowed me to see the beauties of the forests. I enjoy drawing and would like to spend more time with a pencil and paper.

Why I am a Mormon

The Gospel of Jesus Christ has been a source of joy in our lives. I find that it makes perfect sense and displays the purpose for our life here on earth. There are times when life send disappointments, fear or hardships into our lives and knowing the purpose for our existence makes the burden lighter and easier to understand. Our purpose is to eventually return to our Father in Heaven...with our earthly family and enjoy the eternities with those we love. The Gospel is our Roadmap and provides tools to navigate our earthly existence with joy and purpose. We can speak with our Father in Heaven, any time, any place and about anything. Mormons take the "Road Less Traveled" and there they find the freedom and joy to make this journey wonderful.

How I live my faith

Just recently, my wife and I were called to serve a Home Mission. It's just like any other full time Mission that our young men and women serve...except, we stay in our community. We will attend the Missionary Training Center and receive our assignments. Neither my wife nor I served a mission in our youth, so this is the greatest opportunity we can imagine. More to come as we serve...
