Hi I'm Daryk

I'm a state champion swimmer, and a national award winner in Architecture. I'm Utah born, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah, and didn't choose to play ball despite the fact that I am over six feet. I chose to swim when I was young, and worked hard enough to travel to other states and took first place in my own state championships at one point. As I got older, I invested my time and effort into schooling. I graduated high school with an Associates degree so that I would be able to serve a volunteer mission for the Church for 2 years. Shortly before I finished high school, I received 1st place in a national architecture competition for a home that I had designed. I live with family who I love dearly, and have been blessed by many friendships in life. I plan on attending the University of Utah when I return home to study Architecture and Computer Science.

Why I am a Mormon

Although I've been raised with my beliefs, I have chosen to remain a member of Christ's church because He has blessed me with truth and a knowledge of where I came from, what I am on this earth to do, and where I will go after I die. I also love the people I am surrounded by in my life and have never met someone who didn't want the best for me within the church. Love and pure joy is what is given as a gift to me through being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I love sharing it. I continue to be grateful for the sacrifices people have made for me in the past, including Joseph Smith and his trials--which brought the restoration of the true Gospel. I know that if we live right, we will be blessed by God's spiritual presence in this life and eternal life with Him in the world to come.

How I live my faith

I try to bring the best out of people, because I know that everyone has an incredible side of them and that no one should be judged by their mistakes; I know I make plenty of them and I hope people find the best in me, so I try to find the greatness in others! That is how God works with us. I am able to show my faith and love for Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father by being obedient to the commandments they have set for me, but I am also trying to act like my Lord by showing pure love for others. I believe in compassion and kindness above anything else! Making people feel great and comfortable with themselves is why I strive to share this gospel.
