Hi I'm Devin Haueter

I love basketball, I'm from the motherland Utah, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was born in California but grew up most of my life in Utah. I was born into the church to a wonderful family and am the youngest of 4 children. My father died when I was young, and I did not know how to deal with that kind of loss. Luckily I have had the Savior in my life and most recently, I have learned the true healing powers of the Atonemant. I am very grateful to have this gospel for me. My brother and grandfather have been heros in my eyes and wonderful examples of how I can become a man. I love playing sports, especially basketball!! I get very competitive on the court, but love everyone off of it haha. I have great friends serving missions all around the world and I can't wait for the day we all return and are able to share experiences together. I love the Lord, I love the gospel, and I love my opportunity to serve the Lord in Alaska!

Why I am a Mormon

I was initially a Mormon because I was born into the church. I am now a Mormon because I took the steps to find myself a testimony. I was never the typical "Good Mormon Boy" growing up, but I always remembered in the back of my head the things I had been taught about the Gospel which kept me out of alot of potential trouble. When the age for serving a mission was rolling around I decided to find out for myself. I read the Book of Mormon for the first time and chose to pray about it and go forward with my mission. I don't think there was a specific set time when I knew without a doubt the church was true, but I know always constantly choosing the right, serving the lord, reading my scriptures, praying, and going to church built my testimony up. I now know for myself this church is true. I am so thankful for the Gospel in my life and especially the Atonemant's healing powers. Without it I would be lost in shame, guilt, and pain for all the stuff that has happened in my life, but our Savior loved us enough to die for us, and still loves us enough to give us his spirit as we earnestly try to be better. I love the gospel, I love my Savior, and I can't deny the spiritual promptings and messages that I feel, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is not the easiest thing in the world, but it brings the most joy. I try to serve the Lord the best I can. I try to help kids realize how important missions and the gospel are. Without my mission and the gospel in my life, I would be so lost. Looking back on my life before making the gospel a priority, I see emptiness and sadness. The gospel brings us hope, love, and purpose, and I try to share that with everyone I can and be an example of what I believe in. I am always willing and able to help and serve others, and I am always willing to share about what I beileve.

Who wrote the Book of Mormon?

Devin Haueter
The Book of Mormon was brought forth for our days as another witness of Jesus Christ. Before technology we read that there were multiple prophets on the Earth. How could everyone be blessed by the prophets voice if only those in close range of the prophet could hear his words? Well we know the Lord loves everyone EQUALLY so he called many prophets. That is shown in the Bible with many prophets on the Earth in the same time period. A prophet named Lehi was prompted to take his family and their wives and sail across the ocean to the Americas. In the Americas they established themselves and kept records. The Book of Mormon, as well as the Bible, are ancient records of the prophets and people. The Bible is the dealings of the people in the Jerusalem area and the Book of Mormon is God's dealins with those in the Americas. THrough the power of God Joseph Smith was given the records to translate into what we now have as the Book of Mormon, but it was written by ancient prophets of the Americas. Show more Show less
