Hi I'm Delmont

I'm a wrestler, I love to dance, my little sister is deaf, and I just plain love to have fun.

About Me

I'm the 3rd of 4 kids and I'm stuck between two girls, I have an older brother who just had a baby. My big sister (Kista) is currently serving a mission in Michigan [Fun Fact: She left on her mission a week before me and we were in the MTC together for two weeks.] Last but not least my little sister is deaf and currently a Freshmen (9th Grade) in High School. Through her I've had the awesome opportunity to learn American Sign Language (ASL). [Even help others gain a knowledge of the Gospel through it.] I've already had success in the world of Graphic Design and I love it. The power to create is just amazing. I love to breakdance! Well I guess I just love to dance, in my free time when I wasn't working, wrestling, or hanging out with friends, [Well, even sometimes when I was with them.] I'd be a massive dork and breakdance in the middle, yes, the middle of my livingroom floor. Wrestling became a major part of my life when I started doing it my Freshmen year in High School. It taught me a lot about struggles and the need to never give up no matter how impossible it may seem. I look at wrestling as a part of me, it's helped define me and even though it was rough with family schedules I always had someone supporting me. [Even if the couldn't make it to some tournaments. They'd have me call between matches to let them know how it went.] I love my family more than anything and no matter how weird this may sound coming from a guy, I look forward to raising one of my own someday.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born Mormon but that doesn't really explain much of this question as to why I actually choose to stay Mormon... My Junior year in High School I had a friend who came very close to suiside. The idea of losing her really hit me hard. I actually began to really wonder if everything I'd learned growing up was true. I began to question where she might have gone had she of actually done it. I hadn't yet really read the Book of Mormon from cover to cover so I hadn't known of the truth that was written on each page. The light that resonated from each word. I had a friend who told me to finally open the book and read then pray. I did it and as I read and prayed I gained, for myself, a true knowledge that what I had been told most of my life was true. I could feel it. So much so that I could NEVER deny it. Why am I Mormon? I'm Mormon because I KNOW that it's true. That's all there is to it.

How I live my faith

Currently, I'm living my faith by putting my life completely on pause and serving a two year Spanish speaking mission in Alaska, [Yes Alaska.] where I share the knowledge and happiness I've gained with those of whom I've never before met in my life. In my ward back home I was a primary teacher for 8-12 year old boys. In my class we studied the doctrine of Christ and quite honestly we had A LOT of fun. [Granted keeping boys of that age (or any age as I look more at myself... ;D) focused isn't exactly the easiest thing to do but candy and (active) object lessons tended to make things a bit easier...] When I had the chance I'd attend the singles ward activities; ranging from games of kickball... to volleyball, human foozball, racket ball, tennis, pool parties/ beach parties, BBQ's, movie nights, dances, and dates. Every Tuesday I tried to attend a doctrine class at the LDS institute.
