Hi I'm Dexter Gross

I'm a 19 year old guy from a small town in Canada. I love playing sports, the beach, and summer. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grew up in a small farming town in southern Alberta Canada. I was raised in the church and am the oldest of 3 children. I think the world is such an amazing place and I love to be outside. I love to hike and swim in the ocean, my favorite place is on the beach! I play basketball, football, and hockey, and I like to draw and paint. I try to live everyday to the fullest. I love to laugh with my family and friends. My favorite kind of music is country, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Florida-Georgia Line, you name it. And that is me.

Why I am a Mormon

I love this church and know it is true. Everything just makes sense and fits together perfectly. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the father and His son Jesus Christ. I know that he was a true prophet and that he truly did translate the Book of Mormon. I know the Book of Mormon is true and I can't deny it. I have seen so many miracles in my life and have had so many prayers answered. I know Heavenly Father knows me better than I know myself and loves me for who I am. I am Mormon because this church makes me a better, happier person.

How I live my faith

I was raised in the church and so I have gone through primary, deacons, teachers, priests, and am now an elder in the church preparing to serve a mission. I live my faith by example. I try to smile everyday and make others smile. I love to talk to people and try to listen to who they are. I love to make others happy. I keep my standards high and try to live happy, clean, and full life with no regrets.
