Hi I'm Dylan

I am from Pinedale Wyoming...and that just about describes it, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Well. I really like to laugh. I think that it is pretty fun. I also like to work. Good hard manual labour is probably one of the things that makes me the happiest. I am currently serving a mission in South Carolina and I love it to death. I love working on farms and ranches. I farmed for about half of a year in Idaho and worked around horses my whole life. I have a mom and dad and 1 brother and 2 sisters. I love them all. I like sports. I played football for 7 years and ran track for that same amount of time. I enjoy a good branding every spring, and I really enjoy laughing alot. This little blog thing that I am writing is completley random, and maybe that describes me a little bit too. I like to be outside, and I like to try to do funny things. So...there you have it.

Why I am a Mormon

Well, I have a strong testimony of the restored gospel of Jesus Christ. I grew up in the church kinda knowing it was true, but as well I really didn't necessairlily like it as much as I should have. When I would strive to become christlike it felt good, but I wasn't willing to serve one master, or I wasn't willing to totally live the standards that Christ taught because I loved other things that I was doing better. Then I went and worked on my uncles farm in idaho and had some of the most life changing experiences of my life driving tractor and working on fence, not just because the tractor was a John Deere, but because I had alot of time to think. I know that Heavenly Father Loves me because I would always end up thinking the deepest questions like, what if there really is life after this, and what if what I really do here on earth does effect everything in my life after this one? In the end, I have come to know now that our purpose here on earth is to prove our selves worthy to return to live with Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ, and our families, and I know that this was made possible through Jesus Christ and His atonement. I am gratefull for God revealing all his commandments through prophets in the past and today so that we can be able to make our lives clean to be able to return to Heaven and have the same happieness that Heavenly Father has. I know the truths necesairy for this were restored through a prophet named Joseph Smith and that the Book of Mormon is a whitness of this. I came to know it was true, and therefore, I know the things that I know now are true(if that just made any sense), and i am so gratefull for that.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ, while at the same time trying to figure out who I am and trying to develope my talents and abilities for the benifit of others. I used to think that what I am saying now was so robotic and kinda sounded brain washed, but I can honestly say that I have never been happier and that my life is quite the opposite of robotic and brain washed. I am happeir now that I have ever been, and that is because I am trying to serve others and make them happy. I obviosly have a long way to go, and so much to improve on, but if I just, "take a long reign and a deep seat" and put my faith in Jesus Christ in knowing that he will help me, then I will live a happy life.
