Hi I'm Clint Dedrickson

I was born in Texas, grew up in Utah. Playing acoustic guitar is my favorite hobby. I'm currently serving a mission. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play guitar, take my telescope out at night, and I love airplanes. After my mission, I want to go to college and get my pilots license. I love helping people and would love to work for life flight one day. I'm an eagle scout and love to camp and be in the beautiful mountains. I love being with my family and friends. I find relationships to be very important. They give us support, comfort, strength, and love. I'm so thankful to know families can be together forever.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints because I know it's true. I cannot deny it. I know that prayers and the Priesthood authority of God are major blessings if we simply exercise our faith in them. My girlfriend was diagnosed with leukemia a year ago. I personally gained a strong testimony of prayer and the Priesthood. Since then, with going on a mission, I have gained a testimony, that I know families can be together forever. Knowing that brings me much comfort and happiness. I'm grateful to know I can live with all those whom I love so dearly not only in this life, but in the life to come. The special Spirit that this Gospel holds is unlike anything else. Because I know this church is true. I know it contains the fullness of the Gospel. I have been greatly blessed in my life all due to the church. I know i wouldn't be where I am today without the Gospel. It has raised me into a righteous young man. I'm not perfect, we can all be better, but my testimony of this Gospel has changed me for the better. As I continue to serve, it makes me want to continue to progress to my full, righteous potential. One day I want to be the best husband, father, and friend. I know that this Gospel and my mission are constantly helping me to achieve that. I owe it all to my Heavenly Father and His son, Jesus Christ. I know they understand and love me unconditionally. no matter what, and they love you too! I leave my testimony with you in the name of Jesus Christ, amen.

How I live my faith

I have been teaching 7 & 8 year olds for several months now and I love it! They are great examples and have such good insight. I home teach and love to visit others in my area and help them in whatever ways they may need. I love to serve others. I'm currently serving a mission in northern California. We wear the name of Christ on our chest because we are His representative. We are serving to help bring others to the happiness that we have been able to experience through this Gospel. I want to help bring others and their families to know that they too can live together forever, just as I can with my own family.
