Hi I'm Devin

I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada. Moved to Utah when i was 15. I'm an avid soccer player but love being active. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The 1st 15 years of my life was in the fast paced city life of Las Vegas. I then moved to Utah and finished up high school. Playing soccer all my life and staying active in all things i do with all sports and accomplishing the rank of Eagle Scout, helped me to gain a vision of team work and success through hard work. I went to a year of college at Brigham Young University before i went to serve a mission in the Oregon Eugene Mission (OEM). On a mission we get to talk and testify to people every day about Jesus Christ. I have 2 sisters and a brother and love my family very much! Family is super important.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church learning these things that we as missionaries teach. But like every teenager, you can only last on that basic stuff and the testimony of your parents for so long. You start to wonder, why do I do these things that I do? Is it really that important? How does this affect my life if I choose not to follow what i have been taught? All these questions and more came to my head. I started to act on these questions. Using my agency (Choice), I made choices that had bad consequences, and also some that had good consequences. Learning from mistakes and how the things i was taught, even though they seemed restrictive, gave me more freedom than i could imagine. I have witnessed the difference between obedience to the commandments of our Savior Jesus Christ through a Modern-Day Prophet, and disobedience to them. I know through these experiences and through prayer to a loving Father in Heaven that Jesus Christ's church has been restored to the earth through a Prophet and that a Prophet of God speaks to us today. You want to further your knowledge in Christ...read The Book Of Mormon and pray about it. God will witness through the power of the Holy Ghost and your desire to act and experiment upon the word. I love my Savior Jesus Christ and know that only in and through Him I can recieve Eternal Life.

How I live my faith

Giving service is the best way to live the Faith. Christ's life was full of service and teaching the gospel. Helping out with someone in need of yard work or a good cooked meal are simple ways to give service that I love to do. Seeing the joy on someone's face because of an act of service. You gain true love for your fellow men through serving them. I currently get the opportunity to teach people every day about our Savior Jesus Christ and offer service in anyway that I can. If you ever need some service and see those guys in white shirts and ties riding bikes or walking down the road, FLAG THEM DOWN! They will help you. We love to serve as Jesus did. All members of the church will serve. I continually try to act upon the words in the scriptures becoming more patient, humble, dilligent, obedient, and all these different things. Faith is an action word and we must act upon what we know!
