Hi I'm Devin Shane Tonn

I am from Arizona. I am a son and brother of many! I love my family! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have recently returned from serving as a full time mission in the great Texas Houston South Mission! Now I am happily waiting to get married to the love of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and baptized at the age of nine. Shortly after that my family and I fell away because it was hard for my mother single at the time to attend church with five young kids. My mom eventually remarried at this point we would go every once and awhile but I still didn't have the interest in going. It wasen't until after my Junior year of high school that I finally realized what I was missing in my life was His Gospel and to fully have the Gospel in your life you need to attend church. Shortly after returning to church I lost a brother. He passed away after my eighteenth birthday. This was a hard time in my life but because of the love of my family and friends and members of the church I was able to overcome my sadness. Right before leaving for my mission I had the wonderful opportunity to be baptized in the temple for my brother. I know that only through the Gospel of Jesus Christ we can have everlasting happiness! I know that through this Gospel families can live together for all eternity! This is why I continue to live His Gospel and have decided to serve a mission! By serving my Savior I can bring other families happiness just like I have been given happiness!

How I live my faith

Before serving my mission I had the opportunity to be a home teacher. I visited two wonderful families each month and shared a message with them based around families. This experience has helped me prepare to serve my mission. I live my faith in this Gospel everyday by striving to bring Heavenly Fathers children closer to him through the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I know that through this Gospel Families can live together forever! I have seen many blessings in my family and others as we strive to live according to the Gospel. I have had the wonderful opportunity to teach some amazing families on my mission and I know that those families will be forever blessed as they come to know their Savior. I live my faith through my lovely family! I would not be who I am today without them. This is what this life is all about!
