Hi I'm DJ

I grew up in a small town in Illinois, I'm an Eagle Scout in the Boy Scouts of America, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm a Junior In College, currently studying Computer Science. I am a Nerd. I like Star Trek, I play Dungeons & Dragons, I like to play Video Games, and I enjoy programming. I have many friends although I'm a private person. I have no problems with just disappearing to my room for hours on end with little human contact (although I know that isn't good for me to do.) I'm the oldest of 3 brothers, 0 Sisters. I've effectively grown up in a small town in the Midwestern United States. I don't have a problem with City's but I'm fine not living there. I also enjoy rock climbing and just being up high in general. I love the view.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this religion. However when I was about 20 years old I started to question is this really the right church for me? I prayed about it. I knew I felt horrible on those days that I decided to skip church. so I kept going. the real decision came for me when I read the Book of Mormon cover to cover finally and prayed about if it was true. I did the same thing that the Missionaries challenge people to do and I recieved an answer. saying yes, the Book of Mormon is true, and so is this church. So I am Mormon and will continue to be Mormon.

How I live my faith

I don't hide my faith. all of my friends know I'm mormon and respect that even though they are of a different faith themselves. I try to live by the teachings of Jesus Christ in my everyday life. I help others in need when I see them. I also have had positions in church where I've been responsible for organizing activities for Young Single Adults (Unmarried College Age Men & Women.) I Help with one of the local Boy Scout troops in the area helping to teach the new scouts.
