Hi I'm D.J.

"I grew up in Idaho, I build and race cars. Im a Mormon."

About Me

I grew up in Nampa Idaho, I am attending college to obtain my masters degree in Business Managment and Accounting. I am the olest in my family of 6 and I love every one of them. If im not at work or school you will definatly find me building a car or on my bullet bike. I love to ride, I love to race and most of all I love to have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to two beautiful parents, my parents were recent converts to the church and raised me with a strong foundation. But sadly my parents divorced, slowly we fell away from the church and I could definatly see a difference in my life, I was loesing that light that I had as a kid. I missed that feeling of happiness that came with the gospel of Jesus Christ. After I graduated Highschool I jumped straight into college and worked hard twords my degree, I am only 19 now but have an associates degree in Business Managment. I was ready to take on the world, I was working 40 hours a week and going to School fulltime, but still something was still missing from my life. I watched several close friends of mine depart on missions and I saw the woderfull blessings it had on thier families. And I knew I missed my family so I started to ponder the Idea. I jumped back into church and instatly felt the love of my heavenly father and the love for my family grow inside my heart. One night while out riding my motorcycle i took a turn to sharp and cut through a barbed fence, the bike flipped end over end several times with me attached to to it. I should not have survived that accident, but I knew the Lord had kept me alive for some reason, It had to of been a mission. I couldnt get the thought out of my head so i put in papers and prayed night after night for guidence. I recieved my answer and recieved a nission call to speak Portugues. I am a mormon because I know that my heavenly father loves me and loves all of his children. I know that through prayer to him and through this amazing church I can return to him and live with my family for eternity, through this church I will never have to be without the light of Christ in my life, I will never have to be alone again.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission in Lisbon Portugal until the year of 2015. I love this gospel so much because I know my Heavenly Father loves me and that is the message I want to share with the world. I want to serve because I know Can benifit not only the people of Portugal but it will cause me to grow closer to God and help bring my family closer together.
