Hi I'm Devin

I was born and raised in Idaho Falls, Idaho. I'm a missionary in Alaska. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life. I'm serving a mission for the Church in Alaska and the Yukon Territory of Canada. It's amazing! My family and I like to spend lots of time together playing games, watching movies, walking the dog, and going on trips together. I love to spend time outdoors and enjoy what God has created for us. When I return home from my mission, I will attend Brigham Young University- Idaho and study Construction Management and Architecture.

Why I am a Mormon

Being born and raised in the Church has made it really easy to continue to live it's principles and teachings. My parents are a great example to me and help me get through any struggles I may have. My older sisters are also great examples in following Christ's church here upon the earth today. They have both served missions and I love to hear of the different people they met and taught and how those people are so grateful to have the Gospel in their lives. These stories make me even more grateful to be a member of the Church. I know that this Church is true and that by sharing the Gospel message with others, I can bring the great joy that I have felt in my life into theirs.

How I live my faith

I have attended church regularly and participated in the many youth and ward activities since I was born. I love to go to church every week and miss it when I am unable to attend. In my ward, I have held several youth leadership roles in the different age groups as I have grown up. I enjoy the opportunity to become closer to the different people in my classes as I have participated in these positions. I am fortunate to live in an area where we have release time Seminary in school where I can feel like I escape the normal cycle of the school day for an hour and be with people who share my same values and feels of my Saviors love of me. When I heard of the missionary age change in October 2012, I was ecstatic because I would be able to serve a mission almost a whole year earlier than I had previously thought because I'm one of the youngest in my grade and wouldn't turn 19 until a year after graduation. This is a great opportunity to allow me to serve my Lord with all my heart, might, mind, and strength!
