Hi I'm Darren Johnson

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a family man and I love my family! I have many hobbies including Surfing, playing music, guitar, drums, piano that I love to do with my family and close friends. I love the ocean and have been blessed to live close to it all my life. My wife and I love to take strolls on the beach, especially at sunrise or sunset. I served a full time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints when I was 19 years old in the beautiful country of New Zealand. I fell in love with the New Zealand people and the Polynesians that I served. Several years ago I took my wife and two boys back to visit New Zealand and they fell in love with it as well.

Why I am a Mormon

I found out a a very young age that I have a loving Heavenly Father who know me personally and wants me to be happy. I was raised in the Church but it was and has always been my choice to be a member as long as I can remember. I always feel good when I am actively engaged in the work of the church and can tell that it really does bring great joy and happiness to my life. The family is such a prominent focus in the church and being able to be sealed to my family for eternity is one of the greatest blessings in my life.

How I live my faith

I have served in several calling in the Church and have loved all of them, however, I have very much enjoyed working with the youth of the church! I have been blessed to have served with the youth for most of the time. Most of my callings that have been given to me have been in working with the youth! Working with the Priests ( ages 16-19) has been a joy. These young men are always an inspiration to me and helping them figure out what is important in life is a real blessing to me. Watching them grow up in a difficult world and make good choices helps me realize what is really important in this life and how true happiness is found in serving others.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?
