Hi I'm Derek

I was born and raised in Arizona. I am a cancer survivor. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and together we have a wonderful 2 year old boy. I was diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma in 2008. I love sports, especially basketball. I enjoy camping, fishing, shooting, hiking, and pretty much all outdoor stuff.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I want more out of life. Not just for myself, but for my family. To know that I will be with my wife and kids for eternity means so much. To know the bigger plan and why we are here on earth gives me a reason to choose the right. The churches standards are so well put together, following them helps me and makes choice making so much easier.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by participating in church activities. I live it by being an example to others, especially my son. The world can be a crazy place and have some good examples and leaders helps out. I choose to live by my faith because I have seen how it makes life, not only easier, but worth it.
