Hi I'm Derek

I grew up in Idaho and I love Chemistry, Music, and any other phyisical science. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love Idaho.I am the youngest of my family. I love doing any sort of science experiments and building things with my hands. I have had an entry and still love doing it a fruit toss competition. you build medieval devises to throw a peace of fruit as far as you can. if you ever have see the show pumpkin Chunkin that what it is. all sorts of science things I love. I am also a student going to college. thinking about studying chemical engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

I think everyone know that we are not perfect. I am just another guy trying to get through life. I have hit hard times in my life, and when they have come I have been able to rely on others in my church for help. I have also been able to go to my knees in prayer and ask our Father in Heaven for forgiveness for some of the thinks I have done. I know this church to be true. I have felt Christ love for me. I know I have been forgiven for the things I have done. I know Joseph Smith is a prophet of god. Jesus Christ restored this church through Joseph. I know that the scriptures are our map through life and can help us everyday though all of our problems. Most of all I know that Families can be together forever and we will return to live with Him again.

How I live my faith

I have participated in multiple leadership callings it the church. I have also participated in helping the church put on the Hill Cumorah Pageant. I helped build the stage and run the special effects. I had to give up a month of my summer to do that, but I had the funnest time with the hard work I put into it. I am also just about to enter the Missionary Training Center to start my 2 year full time mission in Recife Brazil.

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Derek
The church really focuses on family. family's are were children learn and grow. we want everyone to feel the blessing of a loving family. So we focus on strengthening the family as one of the main things we do and work towards. Show more Show less
