Hi I'm Devyn

I was born in Georgia and grew up in Utah and Arizona. I love to play the piano and sing. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I graduated a little over a year ago from High School. I absolutely LOVE music! One of my favorite things to do is sit around and play the piano for as long as possible, and to sing with my family or by myself. When I was 11 I was in my first musical and loved it so much and have done a couple more since then. I love the snow and traveling to visit my family for Christmas and whenever possible during the summer. Spending time with all of them is what I always look forward to. They are so wonderful and such great examples to me.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in the church, and throughout my life my parents taught me all they could about the gospel using words, but most importantly through their examples. They lived what they taught. But I knew that living off their testimony wouldn't be enough. I had to learn and gain one for myself. I had always felt that this was the right thing to do, but I wanted to know for sure. So I began to study and pray and continue to live the way that I knew the lord wanted me to live. The spirit would always testify to me that I was doing the right thing. That this was the true church, and that I was where I needed to be. My testimony came through study, prayer, and the experiences that I had when acting upon what I was taught, and as I went to church. I know that this is the true church, and that as we listen and follow Christ that we will all be able to live with God again, and be with our families forever.

How I live my faith

Growing up in the church whenever I was given a responsibility I would do my best to fulfill it as best as I could, and to try to be a good example to all the other kids. When I got to my teenage years, I loved it when all the Young Women of the church (ages 12 to 18) would go camping together. When you were in your early teens the older girls would teach you from experiences in their lives how they knew the gospel was true. I couldn't wait until I got older and was able to do the same. When it was my turn I loved being able to help strengthen other girls testimonies as we went around to the younger girls cabins to teach them a sort lesson. It was absolutely amazing!
