Hi I'm Joel Deering

I'm studying at BYU-Idaho, I love sports, I hope to get into the sports business, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I served in the Iowa Des Moines Mission and I returned home in September of 2014. I'm studying at BYU-Idaho to get a communications degree and I want to work in the sports world. My favorite sports are basketball and football.

Why I am a Mormon

There is no other way to go! The Gospel gives you blessings and happiness that you can't find anywhere else. I've seen how living the Gospel impacts my life and the lives of those around me. There is nothing greater than being a Mormon! There are a lot of people out there who are searching for something more in their lives and this is it! I'm very blessed to be a part of the true Gospel of Jesus Christ. I've come to know that this Gospel is true and that's why I live it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by doing the things I know I should do. Basically keeping the commandments. A lot of people think that all of our rules restrict you, but life is actually easier when you follow them. I'm not perfect by any means but I do my best to do the little things like praying often and studying the scriptures.
