Hi I'm Derek

I grew up in utah. I love music and adventures. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I play guitar, piano, and the ukulele. I love being outside and going places and seeing new things. Camping is something i really like to do. I'm accepted to a great college for the fall 2015 semester with a Founder's Scholarship. I also like big cities as well as the great outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in a Mormon family, and the principles of His church have always been taught in my home. But I have come to know for myself of its truth. I'd like to bear testimony that I know the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is the true church. I know the scriptures, especially the Book of Mormon, are true. I know God is our loving Heavenly Father and he knows each of us individually. I know Jesus Christ atoned for our sins, and also enabled us all to overcome our trials if we put our faith in Him. The temple is the House of the Lord. I know the God's power is on the earth today, and it is real. I have been blessed by it countless times. I know there is a prophet of God on the earth, President Thomas S. Monson. He has been called of God, as well as the other apostles and leaders of this church. I say these things in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I have been called to serve a mission for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints. A mission is where I will leave my family, friends, and home to go and invite others to come to Jesus Christ and to accept the gospel and the church. I am not paid to do so, but will actually be paying my own way with support from my family and friends as well. I want to share the happiness this church brings me with others.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Derek
One way to know Mormonism is true is to read the Book of Mormon and then pray about it! I know God will answer your prayer and that throught the Holy Ghost you will know it's true if you pray with faith and sincerity. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

Derek
The Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. It is a history of the ancient people in the Americas and Christ's ministry among them. It contains the fulness of the gospel of Jesus Christ, and I know it can bring tons of happiness to whoever will read it and pray to know of it's truth! I know it's true! Show more Show less
