Hi I'm Des

I'm an artist. I'm a snowboarder. I'm a college kid. I'm a motorcycle rider. & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love art, horse back riding, snowboarding, paint-balling, mudding, riding motorcycles, water sports, hanging out with friends & anything that is FUN. I'm not a shy person, I love the country & the big out doors. I love traveling to new places, in & out of the country. I finished all my high school stuff when I was 16. I have completed a year of art school & right now I am in Cosmetology school. When I'm finished with that I will be able to continue my art education & have a good job at the same time. :) I freaking love my family to death & looooove being Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I know this gospel is true. I don't know how people make it through life or let alone enjoy it with out the gospel. It is a light, if I didn't have it in my life it would be pointless & empty. I've been raised in the church & I LOVE it. Everything I have is because of the gospel. I love that I was born into the church because like I always say, "If I wasn't mormon I'd think mormons were freaks." My testimony keeps growing and the stronger it gets the happier I am. I love to read the scriptures. I have a burning testimony of their truths. Even when it feels like it's to hard to be good, to hard to keep trying I remember that I love Christ & my Heavenly Father so much & that I owe it to them. I owe them everything. I know this gospel is true. I know it with all my heart. It brings TRUE happiness into my life.

How I live my faith

I go to church every sunday. Go to my meetings. Read my Scriptures & pray every single day. It's not just a sunday thing, it's my life style. People at school or kids that aren't members always pick on me about how "Innocent" I am & how I don't do fun things like drink or sleep around. I just laugh & say "I"m happy though. I love being a mormon. & all the people I have seen that do all that.. their lives suck! & my life is good.. real good." :) I realize that I am not perfect, or even close. But I have the desire to become like the savior. That desire just helps me work on myself everyday. To become better, to become closer to my lord, to stay worthy for the temple. I bear my testimony whenever the chance is given. I am not ashamed to let people know I am a mormon & that I love it. I answer questions that friends ask. I defend the gospel when it is needed & I am not ashamed of it in the least. I don't argue & get angry when people are misinformed about our beliefs I just let them know the truth & don't worry about what they think. I know the church is true & it is what my attitude & my choices are based on. I try to be the best I can be so that I can be a good example.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Yes we believe the bible to be the word of God & also that it is holy scripture. We follow the commandments from the Lord that are in the Bible. We believe that the Bible & the book of mormon work together hand in hand. It is a wonderful book filled with answers to questions we may have. Show more Show less
