Hi I'm Devin

I grew up in Arizona. I enjoy outdoor activities, sports, and music! I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Hey! I have been called to serve a mission in Chile and leave in January 2014. I am really excited to share the gospel and serve the people of Chile! Anywho, about me... I am a college student. I really like to learn. There is always something interesting to learn about in any subject. I don't know what kind of profession I would like to take up (preferably something I have a passion for and really enjoy doing everyday). When I was a kid, I wanted to be a llama farmer in the Andes Mountains in South America. I think that would still be pretty awesome, especially since I am the proud owner of 7 llamas! But I know one thing for sure, I want to be happy! That is all. Some things I enjoy are sports (especially soccer), family, friends, hiking, biking, uni-cycling, kayaking, swimming, going on random adventures, and singing songs in my lederhosen. My toothbrush is green (if you wanted to know). One way I have greatest joy is when I am serving others and and making other people laugh and be happy.

Why I am a Mormon

I know this is the true church of God that has been restored on this earth by a man called of God, the Prophet Joseph Smith. He was a prophet just like any other prophet in the Bible (Noah, Moses, Abraham, etc..). I know that we have a living prophet on the earth today and his name is Thomas S. Monson. I know that he receives inspiration from God to guide and direct us in this dispensation. I know that we have a Heavenly Father up in heaven who loves us and wants to help us. I know that our Heavenly Father sent His son, Jesus Christ, to pay the price for the sins of man so that we all may return to live with them again. I know that the Book of Mormon is truly the word of God, and it holds the answer to any question we could possibly have. One of the greatest reasons why I am a Mormon is because of the happiness it brings. It's amazing to know how we can live with with our Father in Heaven again. It just makes sense to me that our Heavenly Father would want us to be happy, and by being a Mormon, I feel those good feelings. I know there are and will be many much more rough and sad times in my life, but by knowing that I can return to live in his presence with my family, friends, and others it brings sunshine to my life on the rainiest of days.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be the best person I can possibly be and trying my best to make right choices. I know I falter and make plenty of mistakes, but I sincerely desire to be a good person. Currently I am preparing to serve a mission in Chile! (as i mentioned above). I will be teaching those in Chile about our church and my purpose is to invite them to come unto Christ. I will be giving up two years in this service as a missionary, but in all actuality I'm not giving up anything because I know that I will be gaining so much by dedicating those two years in the service of God and His children. God loves us, and He wants us to return to live with Him again, and I hope to share this message of love with those around me.
