Hi I'm Devon Vinson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My interest are playing the guitar and recording music. I've recently obtain my Amateur Ham Radio license and enjoy listening to the airways. I have two grown daughters. So now my wife and I are empty nesters. Regardless what you may hear out there about children leaving home, I adjusted just fine. I like all kinds of cowboy shows and I watch them every night. I now reside in the Hoosier state living in a small town suburb, with just enough lawn to where my loving companion can mow the whole lawn without having me to finish it for her. I grew up on a farm in Michigan where hard work was pretty much the norm. My family wasn't overly religious, but during my pre-teen years my family attended a Protestant church in a nearby town. I always felt religion was important, especially at Christmas and Easter. My parents were great people in my eyes; however, they never had a religious upbringing either. So life took me down roads where my experiences didn't always have a happy ending. Most of the time I didn't see anything wrong in some of the social activities I was involved with. I never recall going to my parents to get advise. I guess most of my advise came from my peers at school during study hall. Later I grew to a young man and found my sweetheart one night when I was out with my friends at a dance hall. Eighteen months later we were married, and three years later we were about ready to have our first daughter, and religion came up on how she should be raised.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I didn't know everything before I was baptized, I knew it was right. My wife and I joined the church within two weeks from when we had our first discussion and I've never looked back. That was 35 years ago. Once you know something is true, it makes no sense to me not to fellow your heart.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by accepting callings and assignments from my church leaders, and to show works of charity to all I can temporally and spiritually.
