Hi I'm Devon

I'm a brother, I'm a runner, I'm a musician, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm sixteen and a junior in highschool. The biggest things in my life are my family and this church. I dont know where i would be without them. I'm the second oldest in a family of five kids and I couldn't imagine it any other way. This is my second year running cross country and I've really found a love for running. I love being able to work hard at something and see yourself improve. Music is also a big part of my life and I hope it will continue to be as I grow older. It gives me the chance to step away from the stress of life. I feel blessed to live in such a beautiful place. Backpacking around the Northwest I am amazed at the beauty of this world. it makes me gratefull for all I've been given.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have grown up with its teachings. But there came a time when I had to decide for myself if this church was true. I do know that this church is true and that my heavenly father and Jesus Christ love me. Just looking at my life I see of all the blessings this gospel has given me. I know why I am here on this earth and I know where I am going. It is comforting to me to know that I can live with my family forevor and that God had a plan for his children here on earth.

How I live my faith

Sunday is the day where I try to devote my time to the lord. After all he has given me it's the least i can do to give him one day of my week. I also have the opportunity to go to seminary, a church class we have every morning before school. There, I am able to learn more about the scriptures and about our church history. It gives me the chance to start my day off right. I feel like I'm missing something those days that I dont go to seminary. This gospel is really the guiding force behind my life. I know that whenever I am burdened down with stress or grief or any problem at all, my heavenly father will be there to help me through it. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me" -Phiilipians 4:13
