Hi I'm Deion

I grew up in Utah. I love football and track, but I put sports on hold to serve a mission in Tennessee! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love playing sports. I love having the chance to better myself as a person and in my athletics. Track is one of my favorit sports just because it is so much fun seeing myself improve each and everyday. I really love being around all my teamates and working hard together. But I have put that all a side for two years and I am now serving a full time mission for my Church. I love my mission so much there is not a place that I would rather be than here in Tennessee. Being able to share the gospel to everyone is the best thing on earth. I love being able to serve my God and share the love that Jesus Christ has for each and everyone of us. I love my family so much, they mean everything to me. That is why I am out here... to tell people of the blessings that come from being a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all my life. I have come to know for myself that the teachings from the Bible and Book of Mormon are the word of God. I have found that when I live those teachings and follow the standards of the church, that I am happier. I have learned of the plan that my Father in Heaven has for me. I know that I am here on earth to learn to follow His plan, to serve others and to return to Him. It is through the scriptures that I learn of Jesus Christ and His life and purpose. I also learn of his sacrifice so that I can repent and be forgiven. I know that families can be together forever and knowing this has brought me great joy. By reading the Book of Mormon I have also come to know that God is still speaking to man today through a living prophet. This knowledge that I have makes me want to live the best that I can so that I can have the blessings God and Jesus Christ have for me. There is so much more to why I am a Mormon. I hope as you read about me, that you feel the spirit and the peace and happiness that I have in my life. You can have it, too!

How I live my faith

Right now being a missionary is great I know that I am where the Lord need me right now. How I know that is because I have felt the love the my Heavenly Father. I read and study my scriptures everyday to try and understand the blessings that God has for me. I pray for the strangth so that I can have the spirit with me at all times. That is one of the most important gifts that God gives to us is the spirit of the Holy Ghost. This is how missionary's teach is by the spirit there is no other way that we can. I am doing my best to live my life so that the Holy Ghost can be with me. I know that everyone can have the spirit in there lives as they follow the commandments and the example of Jesus Christ. This is what I do each and everyday out here in Tennessee showing people how they can come closer to Christ. I love it so much it brings me so much happieness.
