Hi I'm Darian

I was born an raised in Utah, USA. I am a musician, a chemist, and a missionary. And I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up loving music. My whole life I've been excited to learn new instruments and new styles and techniques. I play a lot of piano and guitar, I sing along, and I enjoy every minute of it. I also love chemistry. I love learning about the fine detail our Heavenly Father put into the creation of everything on this beautiful Earth. To me, both my passion for music and for chemistry has been a fantastic testament to the presence and the hand of our God in everything around me.

Why I am a Mormon

If I wasn't a Mormon I really wouldn't know where I would go with my life. Not a moment goes by when my actions and thoughts aren't influenced in some way by my faith. Because of my understanding of the Lord's commandments and his love I know the things I must do and the way I must live my life to please him and to better the lives of those around me. And I cannot describe how wonderful it is to be able to turn to the scriptures or visit the temple when the going gets tough and I get discouraged. I love that God always has an answer to my problems, and I can always come to him when I need comfort.

How I live my faith

My faith has always been a reason for me to follow my Savior Jesus Christ and his example. His life was devoted to serving others, and it has become one of my greatest joys to see the smile on the face of someone in need who I've served. He taught to love children for their purity, and I have learned through working with children to love and delight in their brightness and energy. I do my very best to put others before myself and to put God before everything. It is my constant hope that perhaps my example and service will in some way touch someone else and lead them to action, to pass along the love of God that I've felt, that I know governs my life and my actions.
