Hi I'm Derrick

I was born in the church. I´m a Longboarder. I´m a Bass Fisherman, Im a cook and a Brother. I´m a Mormon.

About Me

Well where do i begin, I grew up with a love for the out doors; From fishing, to camping, to sports. When I´m not working, you can probably find me on a lake or oind fishing or with friends longboarding. My grandma got me into photography; so if you can imagine, outdoors, sports, and photography. I plan on studying to be a mechanic and opening a small shop and taking it big and becoming a nationally known shop, working on cars, truck, boats, and anything thats brought to me. My favorite vehicule is a 69 Ford GT500 Mustang. I love music and in high school enjoyed playing the trumpet, as well as Football and track. I enjoy spending time with my friends and family, cooking, camping, fishing, and many other things.

Why I am a Mormon

Im a Mormon, I was born in the church but I went through a phase where i didnt want to be, that time in my life was very hard. I literally was in a dark place of my life and felt as if I was alone and without hope. I didnt want to continue, and the weight of the world was crushing down on me and depression started to take over my life. I started to come back to church and read from the scriptures and pray constantly, I soon found what i was looking for and felt of the Saviors love again. It is the greatest feeling in the world to come unto Christ. I know with out a shadow of a doubt that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is true, that it is the fullness of the gospel on the face of the earth again. That this gospel was restorred by a Prophet called of God, Joseph Smith Spoke with God the father and his son Jesus Christ and revieved and answer and he was to restore this gospel in its fullness. I know the Book of Mormon is the word of God and containts the fullness of his gospel. I know Jesus is the Christ, the Redeemer and Savior of the world. I know through His atonement or His sacrifice all might be saved from death and sin. I would exhort you to read the Book of Mormon and find out for yourself of the truths it contains. I leave this with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

How I live my faith, Well before in life, that was a little difficult, My parents divorced and that had a hard impact on my life. I have seen many blessings in my life. First what changed my desire and thoughts was a letter from my cousin during his mission, he sent me a letter with his testimony of the gospel and I wanted to feel and have that testimony too. I started going back to the church, not missing a sunday, I went with the Elders in my ward on visits, and started reading and actually thinking about the scriptures and a mission.
