Hi I'm Deven

I'm a wrestler. I love the outdoors. I have three older sisters. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I very much enjoy the mountains. Hiking camping and mountain biking are things that are really exciting for me. It definately brings peace of mind when you mingle in God's creation. I'm also a wrestler. I have wrestled for seven years and hope to continue it. Its a hard sport and it will test you mentally, physically, and emotionaly. It has helped me grow and strengthen myself in these areas. Friends are also a big part of my life. They make life so much more exciting and its healthy to have a good laugh. Bowling, going to concerts of my favorite bands, watching a great movie, and going to a good restaurant are all some of my favorite things to do. But the most important thing in my life besides God is my family. I grew up with my parents and my three older sisters. My family is where the most important things are anchored. I can see that being with my family has made me the most happy. I find joy in knowing we can be together forever.

Why I am a Mormon

Well to tell you the truth, I grew up mormon. I was born into a family that are good church goers and taught me all about the gospel of Jesus Christ. But i can tell you that even if you have grown up in the church there will be a time in your life where you will have to live on your faith. It has happened to me when I moved away from home and met many different people with different beliefs and lifestyles. And they would question how or why i can live a mormon life. And it all comes down to the Book of Mormon. If that book is true then everything falls in place. The Book of Mormon is a book either from satan or God as its claimed. So i decided to read it. As I prayed and diligently read and pondered on what it said, i begain to recieve a personal and comforting answer that it was a book inspired of God. And it was grown me closer to my Savior more than ever. I know there will be times where I will feel doubt and fear but as long as I can always remember the clear answer i have recieved from God about the Book of Mormon and the spirit I feel when I hear about the gospel of Jesus Christ then I can always have comfort and know its true.

How I live my faith

Right now in my life i feel like I am living my faith more than ever as do missionary work for the church. Its an experience that has opened my eyes to the way God sees people and how much he loves them. It strengthens me to meet and hear people's testimony of God and Jesus Christ. There are a lot of good people in the world even thought the world capitalizes on the bad sometimes. In the church or not, I have met good people everywhere. And it strengthens my testimony in God and Jesus Christ. Even though there will be times where I will felt doubt and fear but as long as I can always remember the clear answer i have recieved from God about the Book of Mormon and the spirit I feel when I hear about the gospel of Jesus Christ then I can always have comfort and know its true. I have met a lot of people that have fallen away from the church and God and It all starts when you stop praying and reading the scriptures. That in mind i hope that i can never stray away and i know i wont if i do the simple things. I dont know everything but I learn more and more about the love God has for us when we do what we should. I can promise that to anyone. I know that this church is true because of me making that choice to find out. I know anyone can know its true and God is there if they read and ask. And I know that this is the true church of God.
