Hi I'm D.j. Black

i love my family, im a snowboarder, i dance, out doors and water is where i like to be. i love life and im a Mormon

About Me

i am currently serving my mission in Alabama. i go from snowboard to longboard. i love being in the water! (tubing, rope swings, cliff diving) i love new and fun things. iv taught dance classes. i love hip hop! i krump! i play the ukelele! iv played baseball my whole life. i love shooting hoops and playing soccer in the back yard! i defiantly love life! i love my family! i am all ready stoked to one day have a family of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints is Gods gospel on the earth today. the Book of Mormon is Gods second witness that Jesus is the Christ. once i found this out for my self, through sincere prayer. asking specifically if this is true. i could not deny the answer i received from my Heavenly Father. and there's no way i couldn't afford to not take all the blessings he had in store for me and my life. i became the man of the house very young. and needed all the help i could get. my Heavenly Father and His restored gospel gave me what i needed to be the leader and example i had to be for my family. its blessed me through every part of my life. being baptized by some one holding the proper authority, and receiving the gift of the holy ghost and eventually receiving the priesthood has saved my life. the gospel has provided every thing i have.. and gives me great hope and faith in an insured bright and successful future. waking up every morning knowing that i belong to Gods church, the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints, and knowing that i have a loving Heavenly Father that has a plan of happiness for my loved ones and I. just brightens my smile and strengthens my life. it is a one of a kind feeling that no trick on the board, no stunt, no great dance move can give. but now that i know this feeling and this truth, i put it into my tricks, my stunts, my moves, and my whole life. and it is so much BETTER!

How I live my faith

i volunteer as much as i can. from teaching refuges dance and serving at the homeless shelter to giving extra money and helping a neighbor with the yard! i help organize recreation programs and teach younger kids how to play basketball, soccer, baseball, and flag football. i am an eagle scout. iv taught primary in my church (2-3 years old lil kids) i try to visit neighbors of mine as much as i can and give a helping hand or just talk. iv all ways tried to be an example to younger kids in my church and neighbor hood. i love the characteristics of Christ. and i try so hard every day to grow in these characteristic
