Hi I'm Deedra

I have always lived in Idaho. I love learning sign language so I can talk with my grandparents. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I come from a family of seven kids, every sibling I love dearly. I enjoy playing basketball, volleyball, and softball. I love painting and looking at life through an abstract point of view. I attend BYU-Idaho and am now leaving to serve a mission in the West Indies! I have been blessed with great grandparents and find joy in taking care of them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I can see how it blesses my life when I am following his example. I went through a time in my life when I was not very active in the church. Although it only lasted a couple months which I'm grateful it wasn't more, I look back and see how dark my life was. I was only living for myself, there wasn't any true happiness. When I decided to turn my life around everything changed for the better. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that it is a word of God. I know Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that Thomas S. Monson is our prophet today. I am so grateful that families can be together for eternity and that one day we can all return to live with our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I have come to find the many blessings that can come from taking the opportunity you have to serve others. This last month I was blessed with a great visiting teaching partner and am so grateful for being able to visit and serve those sisters. One day I will be able to look back on all the things they taught me in return. No calling is a small calling in the church. They all work hand in hand and are needed to keep things running smoothly. I have the pleasure of being in charge of a box which we keep temple names in. Although this calling doesn't require for me to do a whole lot but when it does I am able to enjoy the blessings of the temple which I have become so grateful for.
