Hi I'm Nick Dees

I'm a beach going,weightlifting, car loving Mormon.

About Me

I'm Nick! I was born and raised in Panama City, Florida. I am currently serving a mission in the Idaho Boise Mission, I'm only two weeks away from completing my mission as well! I was raised in the gospel by my parents, my dad being a convert and my mom having a few generations back the were already members. Where I'm from the Church isn't very big so growing up in the gospel was different because not many of my friends had the same views or beliefs as me but I wouldn't trade it for the world. Having the gospel in my life from such a young age has made me the person I am today and I'm eternally grateful for everything the gospel has brought into my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I want to be. Though I grew up in a Mormon family I have the option to choose. I have noticed the difference in my life between those who don't believe in the LDS faith and have seen first hand how it has blessed my life and kept me on a path to follow the teachings of the gospel. It really first became apparent to me that the teachings are true when my family and I took a church history tour one summer. We visited many historical church sites one being the Sacred Grove. Once I stepped into the grove I had an overwhelming feeling of what the prophet Joseph Smith said happened in that grove happened and that there was no denying that feeling. That is when I came to know for myself that this is the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by following the commandments and principles we are given. I try my best to set the example to show my friends why I follow this faith by trying my best to do what is right. I am serving God as a Missionary to share the happiness and comfort this gospel has given to me with others who are willing to listen.

What is being a Mormon like?

Nick Dees
It's the best! The values, teachings and doctrine of the gospel are the greatest blessing in my life. They give me a sense of direction, comfort and security in a ever changing world. Having a modern day prophet to lead and guide me through life to warn me of the dangers and traps that are out in the world trying to drag us all down to meet the worlds standards, while the prophet helps us understand and meet our Father in Heavens standards. Having many great opportunities to serve in the church as well, whether it's being a Missionary, being a Scout Leader or just going out helping a family move, there are ample opportunities to help out in the gospel, give it a try!
