Hi I'm Devon

I am a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Toronto, Canada. And I love it!

About Me

A few years ago, I decided to live my life with no regrets. Since then, I have traveled to some amazing places like Italy, been a camp counselor and performed in the Hill Cumorah Pageant. I've tried new foods, sung in choirs and ran in obstacle course races. But the most fulfilling thing I have ever done is leaving my home in Calgary behind to serve a mission in Toronto Canada. I never thought I would be on a mission. But after completing my degree in journalism, I felt something missing. And deciding to serve a mission has filled that emptiness. I have never felt more assured of my purpose in life. Each day I wear the name of Jesus Christ literally across my heart. And it is the greatest feeling in the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. It's as simple as that. I feel the best when I live the principles that the Gospel teaches. I still have difficulties but they are easier to get through because I know that I have a Father in Heaven who is watching out for me. I know I have a purpose on Earth. I know I came here to learn and become the best I can be. That gives me the strength to keep working through challenges and to find joy in every day. The Gospel gives me hope that despite hardships and mistakes, I can be happy because I have someone who knows all looking out for me. Rooting for me! He is always willing to forgive me for my mistakes if I just try to be better. God is excited for me to be on this Earth and to experience all the amazing things the world has to offer. And He is always there to help me when I need it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday! From the moment I wake up and begin with a prayer to the moment I kneel beside my bed at night. I try my best to share God's love, to be a Christ-like example, and to spread the good news of the gospel restored with everyone I meet. I am not perfect and make mistakes. But I try each day to be a little better. To leave someone a little better. To love a little better. And to know God a little better.
