Hi I'm Drake Crockett

I am from Riverton, UT, I love professional sports, I share the word of God with his children, and I am Mormon!

About Me

I am normal 20 year old guy who decided to leave everything he has ever known to devote 2 years of his life what he believes! I have friends who are Mormons and friends who aren't Mormons. I love all of them equally and want the best for them! I can see the difference that the gospel creates in peoples lives and I can truly say with all of my heart that if it wasn't for the gospel of Jesus Christ, my family would not be the way that it is right now. I don't know who I would be, what I would be doing, or where I would be without the gospel so I am eternally grateful for it in my life. I am proud to share with everyone that I am a Mormon and I am not ashamed of it! Aside from my missionary life, I love watching professional sports, hanging out with my friends, listening to music, playing music, and longboarding. I also have the lucky opportunity to preach as a missionary in the language of Spanish! Que Suerte!

Why I am a Mormon

Well for me, I was born in the church so that is why I always thought I was a mormon. Now, I realize that it is much more than that! I am mormon because it brings me much happiness in this life! I not only have a family at home, but I have one at church as well! That means to me that everyone at the church really does care about me and they are always willing to help me if I ever need it. I love having a place where i can go to anywhere in the world and feel the same comfort that I would feel at home! It is a wonderful feeling! I am also a Mormon because I know that it is the true church! If I didnt have a testimony that the church is true i dont think that I would still be Mormon! I know that every principle that the church teaches is true and is given to us so that we can have happiness forever and so that we can progress in this life! I know that if we truely live by the standards, we are able to enjoy the blessing of it! Having been born into the church is sometimes difficult to understand the blessings that you receive from the church rather than not being a member and then going through the conversion process and receiving the blessing of the church, but I do know that they are significant and that they can help many peoples lives and change them for the good! The laws and commandments of the church arent just from the church, they are from our heavenly father because he knows what is truely best for his children! That is why I am a Mormon

How I live my faith

Right now, I am living my Faith in the Gopel and in our Savior Jesus Christ by devoting my time FULLY to him and his church. I am serving a full time 2-year mission which means for 2 years, I focus on the gospel and sharing and teaching it with others. I left all of my friends, family, hobbies, etc. at home in Utah so that i can come out to Roseville, California and share the gospel with the people here. I have been serving since March 7, 2012 and my time serving ends in March of 2014. I love the gospel so much that i devote 2 years of my life to be able to go out and share it with people who dont have it in their lives!
