Hi I'm Derrick

I love basketball and my family, I'm normal, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently a missionary in the Washington Spokane Mission. I am from Utah and love my family and playing basketball with my friends. I am a boy and I also like to eat. Root beer.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into an LDS family and they raised me right. I went to church growing up and when it came time for me to go on a mission, I had to find my own testimony. I did. Thus, I'm a Mormon. Whats a testimony you ask? Lets just say, you have a knowing. or knowledge. that something is true. i.e. Jesus. The Book of Mormon. and or the greatness of the only true and living church.

How I live my faith

I am currently a missionary. Doing all the things missionaries do. Building my faith each and everyday. Trying to grow brighter and brighter, until the perfect day. I see the truths of the gospel whenever we talk with people and I love to learn. Living the gospel is how you live well. And I'm living well. Learning gospel truths and living them I think, is the best way to grow your faith.

How are modesty and chastity related? How can parents teach their children to be modest in dress, language and behavior?

Modesty is so important! As a dude, I highly favor those who present themselves in a classy manner. Anyother presentation of ones self causes unwanted thoughts. As an old man once told me, "the way you dress is like setting the table; and influences those you will invite to the table, and how they act." Dressing modestly is the first step to chaste living.
