Hi I'm Darren

I was born and raised in Calgary Alberta. I moved to Victoria BC, where I fell in love with the gospel. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a great family with loving parents. I have a brother who's two years older than me and a twin sister whom I'm older by 1 1/2 minutes. After high school I spent a lot of time on personal growth, I went to school for a little bit but I couldn't find a desire for what and where I wanted to go. I instead spent my time between work and wide range of activities and sports, where I had many fun experiences that helped me add the pieces I was looking for to the puzzle of my life. I enjoy anything on the water and everything from hiking hills to rock climbing. I've worked up to earning a solo jump ticket in skydiving and I look forward to hang gliding someday!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that I'm a child of God. I know that he loves all his children and that he wants us to return to his presence in heaven. I know he sent his only begotten son to earth to lead us on that path back to Him. He has put us here on earth at a time that's right for us to grow and develop, and has given us the people in our lives to help us along the way. I know that families and marriage are eternal, and are of the utmost importance to me. I know I can, and do, have a personal relationship with my Heavenly Father and that everyone too can have a relationship with Him. I know He answers prayers. I know the gospel that Christ taught and the chruch He set up in His time on earth, has been fulIy restored in these latter days. I know I have learned these valuable life changing principles through learning and understanding that very gospel. I know that I am HAPPY. So why am I a Mormon? I guess you could say it's because of what I know.

How I live my faith

I think what I say is important, but it's how I act that I feel is most important. I want what I do to say who I am and who I want to be, so I try to live a healthy life style that reflects that. I have been blessed and been given so much in my life and I want to give back, I want to share. The best way I think I live my faith in Jesus Christ is to help others. It is what Jesus Himself devoted His earthly ministry to. When there is opportunity to serve, I want in! The great thing about that, is that there is always an opportunity to serve!
