Hi I'm Derek

Hey, I'm Derek. I like snakes, board games, long boarding, making people laugh, and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love board games! Sure, games like risk and uno are great but I like lesser known games. A few of my favorites are Tales of Arabian Nights, Dominion, Evo and Catacombs. The reason I like them so much is because it gets people together to just have a good time talking and laughing with each other. As long as I can help other people have fun, I'm having fun. I love animals a lot too. I love mostly all of them, I had a lot of farm pets growing up and after that I've had a few ball pythons, a king snake, a milk snake, toads, a hedge hog and a rabbit.

Why I am a Mormon

The Mormon religion is truly a religion that is for everyone. It took me a long time to figure that out. I was born into the church and have been going to it all my life. That being said, until I was about 20 I was only going to church because I just thought that was what you had to do and I was just going to church with the attitude that I was being forced to go. Now, I know that what the church teaches is true and it's purpose is to bring joy and happiness into peoples lives by helping them come closer to the Lord. I know that this gospel can help everyone, no matter what your problems in life are the gospel can help you. I know that the Lord is our heavenly father and he wants nothing more than to help us along the path of coming back to him, and he defiantly listens and answers our prayers. I know that we do have modern prophets, and that through those prophets the Lord makes his will known. The way that I came to find this truth was to humble my heart and realize that I needed the Lord and that he loves us no matter what our past is, his love for us is incomprehensible. Never feel like you are unworthy of god's love, and never be afraid to ask for his help in any matter.

How I live my faith

I think one of the best ways to live you faith is to be an example of Christ "In all times, and in all places". Saying that by no means, means that I am a perfect person. But I think that people really do notice when you are being a genuinely nice person, people notice when you care about them, and people notice the little things you do, weather they are good or bad. I know that god knows that we aren't perfect, but with that, I also know that he feels every effort we make to follow his teachings. No effort to be Christlike is ever in vain.
