Hi I'm Drake

I grew up in the military and spent good portion of my life in Michigan.Served the church in Micronesia, I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am newly married, preparing to have a family, I also am at school working hard to get into dental school. I love to ski, and read books, I love to play board games and watch movies.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because its how I was raised, and over time I have tested the gospel in my prayers and study of the Lords language and have come to know its all truth. I can feel my Saviors love and know God is mindful of me and I can feel the Spirit of the Lord when I go to church and participate there. I have had ups and downs and this has always helped me turn my life back on course to where I hope to go, in other words to my Fathers kingdom. I love the church and just simply know its true, its Gods church on the Earth, and I want people to know about it.

How I live my faith

I am active in the church and enjoy visiting members in my ward. I am a college student and am the Home Evening leader for a group of other students, we meet together monthly and have fun and review gospel topics. I served a mission in Micronesia out in the Pacific Ocean, I served on the islands of Saipan, Yap, and Chuuk. I currently translate for the church in the language Chuukese.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

Drake
He is our Father, and He loves us with perfect love. We do not fully understand His ways, but we know He always does whats best for us no matter what we may think or feel. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Drake
Its like being anyone, but knowing there is more to life than just the same day-by-day experiences, its trying to be better and helping our families and friends do so also. We do this simply by trying our best to follow the commandments of God, and if we mess up we fix it. Show more Show less

What is the role of the husband and the wife in the family?

Drake
Their roles are tied together, it is to work as equals, one with another. They are to raise their families and support their children. This includes teaching them the gospel of Christ and helping them to be self starters and proactive members of society. Show more Show less

How are the activities of the Mormon missionaries funded?

Drake
I worked since I was 12 to save up money for my mission, I think a vast majority pay from their pockets, with help from family and friends at times. Show more Show less
