Hi I'm Derek

I grew up in Scotland I am retired and I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

About Me

I have two daughters and four grandchidren. I worked for a glass manufacturer for thirty years. I have been retired now for about four years. I like reading, walking, traveling and spending time with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I was in my thirties before I ever heard of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I had of course heard of Mormons but did not know that was only a nick name given to members of the church. I knew nothing about their beliefs until I began to be taught by the missionaries. I was both delighted and amazed at what I was taught by these young men and women. I was impressed that they encouraged me to find out for my self through study and prayer if what they were teaching me was true which is exactly what I did. I was baptised over twenty years ago and I have never regret that decision.

How I live my faith

I have served in a number of callings in the church over the years, each calling has brought it's own challenges and rewards each calling has taught me how to better serve others and has helped me to learn and to grow for which I am sincerely grateful.
