Hi I'm D'Kota

I'm a pureblood Idahoan. I am a Star Wars zealot. I absolutely love sports. I laugh a lot. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am at the brink of where my life is just about to begin. I'm still trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up. I am currently on an LDS mission. I'm serving in the Minnesota Minneapolis Mission! I'm a sports enthusiast. I enjoy watching any and every sport. Whether it be a football game, a wrestling match, a softball game, or a gymnastics meet, I'll be there to watch. I am also a fan of Star Wars. If I had one wish, I would wish I were a Jedi comparable to the Jedi Master Qui-Gon Jinn.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all of my life. I was born into a Mormon family. During my childhood and early teenage years my family and I were not very active in our faith. I began to go through multiple trials in my life. During those trials, I felt alone. I felt that no one could ever love me or care for me. Because of these feelings, I grasped for things that could give me satisfaction, that could give me that love and care I needed. But I didn't find what I needed. It wasn't until I began to be more active as a member of the Mormon church that I found what I needed. I began to read the scriptures more. I read in the Old and New Testaments. I read the Book of Mormon. When I read these books I felt a feeling that I've never felt before. A feeling without a sufficient description. The closest description I can give is love. When I read the Old and New Testaments and the Book of Mormon I felt an immense amount of love from Heavenly Father and His Son, Jesus Christ. Because of what I have read in these books that contain the word of God, I now know that God is real. I can testify that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ live. I testify that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ not only extremely love me, but love every one of us with an extreme amount of love. Because of what I have read in these books, I can also testify that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Savior's church upon this earth today. He is the literal head of the church. I testify that the Savior guides and directs His church through Latter-day Prophets, Seers, and Revelators. Christ is at the center of this church. He continues to live in all of our lives. He loves us tremendously.

How I live my faith

I try to implement love into others lives. I strive to show forth the Savior's love to those around me the best I can. I'll try to talk to people each day and see how they are doing. I'll carry a conversation with a person for hours, if they allow me too. I try to show concern for those around me. When it seems other person is having a down day I'll try to subtly show that they are loved. That someone really does think about them. I try to help people realize that they aren't only loved and cared for by their own family. I try to show them that they are loved and cared for by not only me, but the Savior, Jesus Christ.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being Mormon is the best! Being a part of this church brings so much joy into my life! By living the gospel I am able to find happiness in life even through the tough times. Through striving to live as Christ would I am able to be filled with peace and joy. I love being a Mormon! Show more Show less

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Of course Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture. I love the Bible. It teaches and testifies of Christ. To read from the Bible enables the reader to come closer to Christ. It most definitely is the word of God. Show more Show less

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is our literal Father in Heaven. We are His children. He loves and knows each of us perfectly. Because He loves us He has given us a way to become like Him. Show more Show less

How can I find someone to talk with, in person, about the Mormon religion?

Find the guys with name tags in the white shirt and ties or the girls with name tags in skirts. They're the missionaries. They can help you! Show more Show less
