Hi I'm Devin

I grew up by the Rocky Mountains. I'm studying about families. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a family studies major in college. I love the outdoors, music, and sports. I have lived in Venezuela.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was a little boy I remember thinking about and feeling a closeness to God. I was baptized at 8 years old. When I was about 12 years old I prayed and asked if the Book of Mormon was true. As I prayed I felt a love and happiness that I had never felt so strongly before in my life. I knew that God was answering my prayer at that very moment. I have felt those feelings many times since then. I know that God really does love all of His children and that He is aware of all us. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. He literally forgives us of our sins and cleans us as we follow Him. He is Love. I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet of God. I know that we still have a prophet today. His name is Thomas S. Monson. I know that he is a true prophet who receives guidance from God. I know that the Book of Mormon is a true book. I love God and am grateful for His guidance and love. He will guide us every day as we turn to Him.

How I live my faith

I study from the scriptures and strive to help others. I serve in the church as a ward missionary. As a ward missionary, I visit members who may be having a hard time in their life. I also volunteer at a family history center where I help people discover and learn about their ancestors.
