Hi I'm Derek

I'm a Mormon. And I am just finding out how wonderful life can be as a member of the Church of Jesus Christ...

About Me

I was born and raised in a wonderful home with parents that didn't go to a church, or even promote a religion. I was baptized when I was 8 by my Grandfather, I received the Aaronic Preisthood at 12, and after years of not really worrying about church, I attended the Manti Pageant and felt the need to hear the message of the gospel. I took the missionary discussions and started attending church. I later served a honorable mission. I am Married to a wonderful woman with whom I share my life with our 4 children. The gospel is a gospel of love, acceptance, repentance and forgiveness. This General Conference has enriched my soul more than I can remember a conference doing in the past.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I found that God loves me and that the Church of Jesus Christ is the true church on the earth. It has given me happiness, joy, understanding, peace and love. I know that through the church and it's teachings I can return to live with my Heavenly Father because I have followed the example of my savior and I love the fact that regardless of my shortcomings, I can repent and be forgiven.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending my meetings weekly, teaching my children to love god and each other. I also talk to those about the gospel because it is what makes me happy.
