Hi I'm Devynn

I grew up on an Navajo Reservation. I'm a college student. I'm a full time missionary, and I am a Mormon

About Me

I am a Pre-Dental Student at Brigham Young University in Idaho. I love to run and play soccer! I am currently a full time missionary in the Samara Russia Mission. I have an incredible family who loves and supports me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was blessed to born into the church. My parents are both converts with strong testimonies of the restored Gospel of Jesus Christ. Throughout my childhood, I was able to lean on their testimonies, but when I began middle school I really needed to stand strong in my own testimony. I began reading the Book of Mormon and praying to our Heavenly Father to know for myself that this was the true Gospel. I spent hours searching, pondering, and praying. After each prayer, my heart was filled with the utmost peace and comfort. The Holy Ghost was testifying to me that the Book of Mormon was the word of God and another testament of our Savior, Jesus Christ. I fill so much joy as I am faithful, as I pray, and as I strive to be more like my Brother, Jesus Christ. So why am I Mormon? I am Mormon because I know that the Prophet, Joseph Smith was asked by our Heavenly Father to restore the Church on the Earth and to translate the Book of Mormon. This church is no mere American religion. It is true. As I read the Book, I feel of my Savior's love and I grow closer to him. I know that our Heavenly Father loves us and that is why he has given us the Book of Mormon so that we can learn to be more like Him. I am grateful for the plan of salvation for it is truly the plan of happiness. I am thankful for the love and sacrifice of our Savior. Because of His atonement, we can be forgiven of our sins and become perfected so that one day we too can return to live with our Father in Heaven. I know these things to be true because I have received a witness of it's truthfulness from the Holy Ghost. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

How I live my faith

Currently, I am serving a full-time mission for the Church! I am serving in the Samara Russia Mission! As a representative of our Savior, I live my faith by serving and teaching the people of Russia. I have the blessing to witness to the people of Russia that Jesus Christ lives and loves us. I live my faith by inviting others to come unto Christ by following his example! As I serve those around me, I begin to see and love them the way Christ loves and sees us. My mission is difficult, but with the strength of the Savior, I can defeat any obstacle. With the Lord on my side, I am able to share with those who are willing to listen about Christ's restored gospel.
