Hi I'm Dillon Thompson XIV

I grew up in Las Vegas, an older brother of 5 siblings, and excited to experience life I'm a mormon

About Me

Hey I love doing something, always on the move with something! I go mountain biking, snowboarding, wake boarding, dirt biking/quads. I spend lots of time with my family and love them very much. My brothers and dad go out and do things like that with me all the time and I grew up working with my dad in construction. He has taught me many things that are life time experiences for me and would't change those times for teh world!!! I take what I learn from my parents, friends, and peers and apply them to my life where I am now and how I can improve upon each subject that will help make me become a better individual. I started school in Idaho and will continue going to school after the mission to hopefully become a doctor or a businessman, haven't made up my mind yet :)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the Holy Ghost has testified to me that this is the true Doctrine that Jesus Christ has given to us on the Earth. I have felt the love, comfort, direction, guidance, and safety from my Heavenly Father throughout many experiences in my life and I have realized the importance of teh relationship I am able to have with my Father in Heaven as I strive to keep His commandments, build my Faith in Jesus Christ each day by helping others to come unto Christ, Repent of my sins through the Atonement which has been provied for each and every one of us through our Savior Jesus Christ, keep my covenants and promises that i have made with Heavenly Father at my baptism, and do all I can to Endure to the end and the last possible second. The gospel is an ongoing process and will never end, we will always learn something new and we can't obtain all of it at once!! I love this Gospel with all my heart, might mind and strength and I will be a member missionary the rest of eternity helping others to come unto Christ through His restored gospel, I often recall upon D&C section 4 to help remind me of being in the service of God as well as section 100, both sections of the Doctrine and Covenants are testimony builders to my life!! I read teh Book of Mormon and prey to my Father in Heaven every single day so that I can strengthen my relationship with Him and someday live in His presence as I am obedient to His word and Gospel.

How I live my faith

I had lots of church callings growing up in the young mens program such as serving as the Deacon/Teachers/&Priests quorom president. I was in seminary council and oraginzed and guided the seminary for the high school to make the seminary experience amazing for all the youth of the stake. I was on the youth commitee and planned and organized the youth stake conference; we planned a carnival for cancer children and their families. It was a huge success as well as a HUGE project, it went all day on a Saturday and served, loved, played, helped, etc. with all of the children and families. we had a little over 450 youth show up and 2000 people show up fom the families with children who have cancer,, it was a huge blessing and amazing experience that strengthened my testimony big time! My Freshman year of college I was a stake indexer and I was able to put names of people on the websites for people to look up the stories and background of people who are related to them.
