Hi I'm Devin

I'm from Utah played soccer growing up was a Missionary in Seattle and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am 23 years old. I have played soccer throughout High School and some College and served as a Missionary in the Washington Seattle Mission. I plan on going to school to study Physical Therapy and pursuing that as a career when i am done with school. I am a Snowboarder and have grown up in the snow. I enjoy Video Games, Sports of any kind including attending Sporting Events and any out door activity really.

Why I am a Mormon

Alot of people think that if you are Mormon you grew up going to church especially if you are from Utah. But one thing that i have come to know is that you cannot go off of borrowed faith from your friends and family forever. It took me a long time to figure out that i wanted to come on a mission and serve the Lord. I was unsure if it was the right thing to do if the church was right for me. It wasnt until i aksed my Heavenly Father if the Book of Mormon was true and if Joseph Smith was a true prophet of the Lord. I really had to find out for myself through alot of study, prayer and thought in a place where i could just be alone to think about life and the questions i had. I know that anyone that does pray and really wants to know the truth for themselves will be able to come to know the truth for themselves but they have to have the desire to know more and to pursue the answer they get from God. It was essential for me to know that this Church, The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints is true. It wasnt something that i wanted to give up on until i got an answer, and i got my answer and i know everyone else can as well.

How I live my faith

I was a Missionary in the Seattle Washington area for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints and that time in my life was one of the best things that has ever happened to me in my life. I was able to help others learn and find out for themselves the things in life that are true and be able to help them along their spiritual journey. In our community we go around and help everyone with service and just help everyone to be able to have happier lives to be able to feel more joy in their lives than they ever have before. A lot of the things we do we do not only as a Church but a Church Family and that always helps to know that where ever you go you have family in a way. I live my faith by continuing to share the message of the restored gospel throughout my life, to be able to continue to see the happiness that shows when they have the gospel in their life, as well as setting an example to all of my friends and family by choosing to do the right thing always and helping others to as well.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Devin
A big reason for me why I go out is because i know what this church has been able to do for me and my family and the things that it has helped me with and taught me have only helped my family and I become closer. While i've been a missionary i have been able to see many families come closer together and be able to have more joy in their lives. it has really been an eye opener to me about how much the church really does care about families and why the missionaries come out not for themselves but to help others be able to find more joy and happiness in their lives as well.
