Hi I'm Devan

I grew up in Canada. I attend a lot of courses put on my companies across North America. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to learn and to read. I often take courses to grow, develop, and become a better person. I'm not married yet, but plan to be soon. I intend on making a living serving people and helping them get better results and happiness in their relationships, finances, and relationship with their Heavenly Father. I love the Gospel of Jesus Christ and I'm so grateful I found the Church.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because I feel and know that it is Jesus Christ's true Church. I came to know this through honest, sincere, and fervent prayer. I met with the Missionaries simply because a friend invited me to. I decided to act on faith just to "test and see" if God would answer my prayer to know if this was the Church I should join. He answered my prayer, and told me by way of feelings of peace and confirmation, that I should join this Church. Over the past months I've grown in my testimony and now am certain that this is His only true and living Church, and that I will get closer to God by living the Gospel of Jesus Christ only found in this, His true Church. I'm a Mormon because I know that this is the true Church of Jesus Christ, because I can't dely it, and because of the immeasurable blessings living the Gospel has brought into my life.

How I live my faith

I love to participate in activities in the Church. I especially like our Family Home Evening activity, that usually takes place on Mondays, where we have a lesson then enjoy quality time though games or other activities with our families and/or friends. I also attend institute, similar to Sunday school but it's during the week, to keep myself sharp, fresh, and to grow my understanding. I study reverantly and often, in the scriptures and in other useful material. I mark things that are important to me or catch my attention in my scriptures. I work hard to be strictly obedient to my Father in Heaven, and have received many blessing because of it.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the power and authority to act in God's name. The priesthood that exists now, within the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the same priesthood that existed in the original Church established by Jesus Christ. The priesthood is required to do things like bless the Sacrament, lead Church meetings, and bless those who are sick. Show more Show less
