Hi I'm Derek Taft

I'm an Idahoan for life I rodeo, hunt, an fish I'm servin a mission in Portland, OR, Im a member of the Wolf Pack an Im a Mormon.

About Me

Im a simple living kinda guy I live for being out in Gods country small mouth bass fishin an bird huntin are my favorite pastimes.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a member of this church because I have gained a testimony for myself that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the only true church on this earth. How I gained that testimony is I had to read from the Book of Mormon an sincerely ask God if it's true an through the faith an effort on my part I gained the testimony I will have forever. This church has the same authority the prophets in the Bible had. An with that authority back on earth we have full access to the atonement of Jesus Christ. This church has the same structure as when Christ set his church up in the Bible. I could go on forever but bottom line this is the true church.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by simply trying as hard as I can to pattern my life after how Jesus Christ lived his life. An when I do stray off to rely on his atoning sacrifice so I can change an get back on the strait an narrow path.
