Hi I'm Derek

I have moved over 9 times. I am an Eagle Scout. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I have never been really good at math or english so school was always tough for me. I never felt like i was ever gonna be able to graduate, but with hard work and determination i passed with a B average and got my diploma. I enjoy hiking and fishing, its always nice to just go out and get your head clear in the outdoors. There is nowhere more peaceful than next to the river or hiking in the mountains.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints not because i was born into the church but rather i cant see myself in any other religion. Nothing feels the same as this church, i have freinds who are baptist and catholic, i have heard what their message was but i didnt feel the same as i would in seminary or sacrament. I am a mormon because i know in my heard it is what i need to be.

How I live my faith

I was always taught that you said yes to a calling no matter how inadiquite you felt. I was so nervous when they called me to serve in the primary. I didnt know how to get the kids attention or how to teach them, so i almost gave up before starting my calling. Then i got this overwhelming feeling that i needed draw a tree on the board. Well that got there attention and i was able to tie in the tree with the lesson about faith. Faith is jsut like a small seed, we need to nurture and take care of not only our faith but those around us. I am always doing service and helping those in need. It is not always easy going up to a persons house and asking is there anything that my freinds and i can do. I know that as long as you try to keep your faith growing and help others find a nurture their faith blessing will always come.
