Hi I'm Derek

I was born into the church, and have an amazing family that has taught me the gospel. I will soon be going on a mission!

About Me

I am just about to graduate and I am so excited! I will be going a two year mission to teach the gospel at the end of the summer. I have plans to go to college when I return from my mission. I have a scholarship that the school has agreed to hold for me. Some things I like to do are hiking with my friends, going to my grandpa's cabin, riding four-wheelers, fishing, pretty much anything out side I enjoy doing.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints so I have always been a member. I like the way I feel when I know I am living the way God wants me to live. I have relatives that no longer live the gospel and I've seen the way that life just doesn't seem to go as well as it could be, often times it appears to be because of the decisions that they are making. I have a firm testimony of this church and of its teachings. I know that life works out better when you fallow in the foot steps of Jesus Christ and that you will be happier. God will always bless you when you try to do what is right.

How I live my faith

I attend my weekly Sunday meetings every week, at the moment I am the youth leader of the 16 to 18 age group for the young men in my ward. I participate in as many of our planned activities as I can. I go to seminary, a class during school where we can learn more about the scriptures and the gospel. Reading the scriptures on my own is part of my daily routine. I always try my best to live my life like the Savior Jesus Christ.

What is faith?

Derek
Faith is a hope for things that you do not necessarily know yet or things that you can not see. When we have faith in Jesus Christ we are led to try to be more like him and to fallow his commandments. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Derek
A testimony is what a person knows or strongly believes to be true. When we bear our testimonies we are sharing that knowledge with others. Show more Show less
