Hi I'm Derek

I'm a piano player. I like playing soccer and love spending time with my family and friends. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy watching and playing sports, especially soccer. I played on a soccer team with my friends throughout my teenage years. I also like music - singing and playing the piano. I have been in several choirs throughout my middle and high school years, and was even in a choir at the Orem Institute of Religion. I also grew up playing the piano and have a special talent called perfect pitch. I like sharing my gifts and talents with others. I enjoy using computers and am into digital media - creating music and videos using music and video editing programs on a computer. I hope to develop my interest in digital media as I go back to college this fall at Utah Valley University. I love to travel and have been to several states within the US and several countries in Europe and South America. I am an eagle scout and recently was a missionary for the LDS Church.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. My parents and grandparents were faithful active members of the church. I grew up going to church and always enjoyed it because of the wonderful family, friends and neighbors around me. Even though I grew up in the church and learned its doctrines and principles, I didn't really understand them until I became a missionary. I always loved helping and serving others to bring joy into their lives. In fact, I continue to follow the gospel of Jesus Christ because it has brought so much joy into my life. It is the gospel that has given me the blessings of a happy united family and friends who live righteous standards and help me to do the same.

How I live my faith

I love helping and serving others. A big part of being a member of the LDS church is being able to constantly visit, help, uplift, and just spend time with friends and those I don't even know too well. I love being able to represent Christ by doing what he would do if he were here and loving people as he would love them.
