Hi I'm DJ

If it involves pudding I'm in... oh and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Boise Idaho and am prooouuud of it. I love anything physical from wakeboarding to wrestling and boxing to backpacking and back to the gym to powerlift. I like to take long drives when i have no place inparticular to go. oh ya and i love being a missionary! I dont think i have to many dislikes. I try to look at things as good, better and best. My family is pretty big, theres 8 Kids four of each, three of which are adopted. They mean everything to me. My mother is the the #1 mother on the face of the planet so i apologized to those of you who were miss informed.

Why I am a Mormon

Why am i a Mormon? What a great question. I had to ask myself that question when i was 18. My original answer was, "well i grew up in the Church. so i guess thats why." That answer didn't sit to well with me though. I needed to know that i was doing what God wanted me to do. I needed to know what the truth really was. So i did the only thing i could think of, and that is, i tested it out. I read from the Book of Mormon, and i prayed, i decided to go to church and try to live the standards of the Church better than i had been. There werent any heavenly messangers that appeard to tell me it was true, i had no flash of light or any other supernatural event to confirm wether The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is Gods Church on the earth. But with a small fleck of faith and working at it i came to realize that what i had been taught my whole life was true. and that God cared about me enough to send his Son, Jesus Christ to suffer for my sins, and my pains and my stupidity. I have experienced a Mighty change of heart. Through sincere repentance and a desire to change i have felt those heavy burdens of sin and guilt lifted from my heart. Thats why i am a Mormon. This is where i have found my joy.

How I live my faith

I live my faith on my sleeves. I try to do as Christ would. I have learned that its all about love. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son...", we need to ,"love one another as [Christ] has loved [us]". I try to do what God expects me to, what i promised i would do while here on Earth. Christs mission was one of love and ours, is one of integrity. Currently i am serving in the Arizona Pheonix Mission for 2 years sharing the message of the Restored Gospel with anyone who will listen and with everyone who has a question and I have Never been happier. I live my faith by asking questions and finding answers. I live it by trying to be the best person i can be and to do what God wants me to. for now thats the plan.
