Hi I'm Devin

I was born in South Africa. I was raised in Oregon. I was homeschooled through high school. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was a swimmer for 10 years on a club team in the town where I grew up. I play a little bit of guitar. I like to play rock music, particularily music by the band "Rush". I do balloon art. I love playing with children. They are so much fun and full of life and energy. I love reading books, esspecially fiction. I was going to college but I am a vollenteer for the church right now and I will finish being a volenteer in March of 2015. I love serving people and helping them become happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into this church, but over the years I prayed and asked God if this church is true. I got my awenser and I love it. I have felt a sense of belonging and of peace from being in this church. I am a Mormon because I love Jesus Christ, I know that this is His church, and because I can and have found the answers to my questions and problems in the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon means everything to me. It helps me have the strength to live life everyday. I feel peace when I read it's pages and it helps me become more like Jesus Christ. Another reason I am a member of this church is because as I live the standards I feel a power beyond my own helping me and guiding me in my decisions everyday. That gives me the confidence to do what I need to.

How I live my faith

I try to always have a positive atitude. I feel like having a positive attitude has helped me overcome many of the hard things in life and it has helped me keep moving forward. I try to smile and be encouraging to people. Right now I am a missionary for the church and I am serving in and around Tokyo Japan. Everyday I have the chance to make someone smile and to help someone feel more hope. Sharing what I have gained and what I love with people for over a year now has been one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. I try to live my life as Jesus would have me live it. I do my best to study what He taught and to be the kind of person that He was.
