Hi I'm Derek

I'm from Rexburg, I love to run, play piano, and dance! I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to play soccer in the grass with no shoes on. I'm one that will jam on the piano and sing with the soul. I love a good beat to dance to. I like ballroom and brake dance. Running is my passion!

Why I am a Mormon

All growing up I had many leaders say that I couldn't rely on them, or my parents, telling me that this is Jesus Christ's church because one day it wouldn't be enough to convince me that it was. They told me that I needed to read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it was true. Time passed and the day came when I was riding the fence trying to decide if I should stay involved in the church or if I should go another way. I decided it was time that I should read the Book of Mormon and pray to know if it was true. Every night before I went to bed I'd read one chapter and then pray and ask God, "Is this book true?" and then I would wait for a moment and feel nothing. However, I wasn't finished with the book so I continued reading and praying every night. 5 months into it I read another chapter and I knelt down and started to ask the same question I'd been asking for months when the brightest feeling came into my heart letting me know that the Book of Mormon was written by prophets of God. That is how I know this is Jesus Christ church. That is why I'm a Mormon! :)

How I live my faith

Besides the normal, read my scripture, pray, and go to church. I strive to take some time out of my day to make a time to clear my head of all the crazy thing that are throne at me and refocus on what's most important to me.
