Hi I'm Dylan Simkins

I am from Idaho. I have attended BYU. I am going to serve a mission in the Baltics. I am a Mormon

About Me

My Name is Dylan, and I am a University student studying biology at Brigham Young University. I am 18 years old, and am a ballroom dancer. I love to ballroom dance! Some of my other interests are swimming, hiking, Scouting, and pretty much anything outside. I love to camp and just be with my friends. Besides the outdoors, I just absolutely love reading. It truly is one of my passions. I will read just about anything I can get my hands on. Right now I have been called to serve a Mission to the Baltics in Eastern Europe. I am learning Estonian, and love the opportunity which I have to serve. I will be gone for 2 years, and I am looking forward to helping the people in Estonian in any way that I can.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the happiness that it brings into my life. Everyday I receive hope and happiness becasue of the faith which I have. I know that the LDS church is true, and I can tesitify of the happiness which it brings. I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior. And I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. I know that all can receive the truth of my words through prayer.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith every day of my life. It affects every action that I do. I love the feeling that I get when I follow the standards of the LDS church. I am always encouraged to serve both in my community, and at home. Opportunities are frequently available for me to serve my community through the LDS church. I also live my faith by serving in my family. I try every day to be as respectful and kind to my parents and siblings. Because of all of us trying everyday to love each other, we have a very happy family. I try to be an expample of how to act for my little sisters and brother. I am going to Serve a Mission in Eastern Europe so that I can help the people in the Baltic area.
