Hi I'm Darl

I live in Washington and North Dakota for the family beekeeping business, I go to college in Rexburg, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing Chess; I have competed in local tournaments several times including a couple times at college. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as canoeing, rock climbing, and snowball fights. I have moved out of the house and started college, but I still enjoy the time I spend with my family best. In college I have studied mechanical engineering, and out of the classes I have taken for it I enjoyed most the one where I got to play with computer aided design programs. I am currently serving a mission and loving it.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of the Church because, like Nephi in the Book of Mormon, I was raised by goodly parents who love the Lord. They set good examples and provided everything I needed to find out for myself. I have gained a testimony from attending church, reading the Book of Mormon, and having spiritual experiences including feeling the influence of the Holy Ghost and having prayers answered. My conversion was not a singular event, as Saul/Paul had, but coming to know the truth of the gospel through years of advancing line upon line, and precept upon precept, here a little and there a little.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission for the Church and inviting others to come unto Christ. I think that the best way to live my faith is to share it with others so that we can learn and be edified together. Before my mission I learned as a teacher, first as a home teacher, visiting members in their homes and helping them with their problems and sharing a message. Later in college I taught a class third hour every other week which greatly helped me learn how to teach. All that and a lifetime of trying to live the gospel has helped to prepare me to go out into the world and bring people unto Christ, strengtheen their faith, and do good works.
