Hi I'm Drezden

I love using my imagination to create characters, worlds, stories, and the otherwise impossible. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a high school graduate going on a mission. I did school at home so I could finish school early, and because I hated all of the public school drama. I love the arts: music, literature, theater, and art, and participate in each one of those as a piano player, a fantasy writer, acting for fun, and drawing manga. I love using my imagination, and make-believing all sorts of scenarios that are in no ways contained in reality. I also greatly enjoy the outdoors, specifically the mountains. Snowboarding and rockclimbing are some of my favorite hobbies, even though I hardly ever get the chance to do them and am not very skilled in either. I'll be going to BYU in Provo, UT when I get back from my mission, and will be majoring in either mechanical or chemical engineering. Even though my dream job is to become a full-time author. I already have four different stories planned, and even more scattered ideas, and I hope to provide stories that will both stretch the imagination and provide wholesome, fun material for all ages to enjoy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church and have been a member all of my life. However, even most people born into the church have their moment of doubt, when they stop believing the words of others and have to figure things out for themselves. However, I am very happy to say that I have never doubted for a single moment the validity of Jesus Christ's Gospel and his Church. Everything taught to me has made complete sense and checks out with the rules of reality 100%. Not only that, but the help I've received from answers to prayers during my darkest times of my life, when only the grace of God was what carried me forward, is unmistakeable. I KNOW this gospel is true, and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I am a missionary, and as such I am going out to the streets and neighborhoods of my designated area and teaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to all who are willing to listen. I know that what I am teaching is true and will truly help out everyone who is willing to make that change in their lifestyles. It is a bit different, but it comes with rewards that are much greater than anything the world can provide, both physically and spiritually. The church and its people is a great support system, so I support it by living by its values and being a good example.

What is being a Mormon like?

Drezden
Basically, being a Mormon is simply just being a human, but with values, because we know that these values will help bring joy to our lives. Being a Mormon also entails trying our hardest to help others gain these values because we care about our fellow humans and know that if these values help us, then they can help you, too.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Why is family so important to Mormons?

Drezden
Families are the central unit of society, and are central to God's plan for us. They are of utmost importance, because a proper family setting (a mother and father lawfully wedded as husband and wife) provides love, and support, and a healthy environment for people to learn and grow up in. A family that teaches truth and righteousness to their children passes on the values we as Mormons cherish so much, and will help bring happiness to their children, and to those whose lives those children touch. Even though we cannot chose the conditions we are born into, we can chose to make the best out of what we have, and eventually make our lives and the lives of the ones we love most even better as we start families of our own. What's more is that we know it is possible for families to not only last "'til death do you part", but for all eternity. Show more Show less

Can a husband and wife be together forever? Do Mormons believe that families will live together in heaven?

Drezden
Through sacred ordinances performed at our temples, a marriage between husband and wife can be bound together for not just "'til death do you part", but for all eternity. Through this sealed marriage, all of their children are also bound to them forever. The true love felt in the Show more Show less

What is Mormonism? OR What do Mormons believe?

Drezden
We believe that this church is the restoration of the teachings of Jesus Christ as he organized his church in the New Testament. We hold to all of his teachings and know that all people are able to receive the Gospel and return to live with God. We continue to receive revelation and guidance for these changing times through our modern day prophet and the apostles. We can also receive revelation for our own lives and the lives we have responsibility over. This is all made possible through the Holy Spirit, which guides the prophet and members and even people who aren't Christian through a still small voice, that can only be heard if we try hard enough to listen. Ultimately, we believe that Jesus Christ is our Savior, the Son of God, and that he came down to live a mortal life to be an ultimate example to all of us, and to sacrifice himself for all of the sins of the world, so that each and every one of us has the opportunity to repent for a wrongdoing and eventually live with God, Our Heavenly Father, again.
