Hi I'm Derek Webb

I grew up in Utah. I am a soon to be Full- Time Missionary in the service of our Heavenly Father. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I'm 21 years old I have live in the Church my whole life. I love history I want to become a high school history teacher one day. This is something i've wanted to be since i was five years old. I have never been married but hope to one day have a family. I have attended some college in hope of starting my career. I had put a pause on this dream to serve my heavenly father on a mission. I also like baseball and football which I have played since I was old enough to sign up.

Why I am a Mormon

Some people think when they hear the word Mormon they automaticlly think that this person is perfect. This isn't true I have been a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints my whole life, but i didn't always fallow the teaching and doctrine of my church. I Became in-active for almost three years. For those three long years I lived a very rough life-style. Till one day I met a man who gave me some advise about how I was living, how he had been there, and how the church change his life. Hearing this man's story I wanted to know for myself what he was talking about. It took me a few months to relize after hearing his story of in-activity that if i wanted that feeling he had that i would need to go to church. I prayed to our heavenly father to know the truth and what I should do and in 2010 I had started my mission papers. I can stand today and say I know my God and the path he wants me to walk on. That this is his church. That through the doctrine and teachings of this grand church we can find happiness like I have. That the questions I had about where we came from? Why we are here? What does God have planned for us? And how do we return to him? Through this church we can have these anwers.

How I live my faith

In the church there are mean different calling that are given to ward memebers. My calling in my ward is known as a ward missionary. What it is that I do is i go to ward memebers who are less active in the church and them come back to church. How I do this is I sometimes will given lessons to them about The Gospel of Jesus Christ, if they need help around thier house or yard, and sometimes i just go to visit and be friend to those members who have become less active.
