Hi I'm Drake

I love playing sports. I enjoy playing games, laughing, and being with my family. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the oldest of three children and am a college student at Brigham Young University. I love singing, playing cards, and playing games with my family. I enjoy participating in different sports, especially basketball. I love interacting with others, meeting new people, and being a friend. Playing the ukulele is a hobby I really enjoy, even though I can't really sing very well. I have always loved eating food, and have a tendency to eat too much at times. My family is very important to me, and I love the time I get to spend with them.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always grown up and been raised in the church, but there comes a time when you have to gain your own testimony. I have gained my own assurance that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church on the earth today by doing some very simple things. I have read the Book of Mormon, and I have sincerely prayed to know if it is true. The time I first prayed about this to really know, the feelings I felt in my body are indescribable. I felt a calming reassurance in my heart, and tingling from my head to my toes. I know that this is the Spirit of God testifying to me that these things are true. The true peace and happiness that comes from living the standards of the church is what all God's children should have the opportunity to feel. I know that true happiness comes from following the teachings of Jesus Christ. I am so grateful for all the opportunities the church gives me to serve others in various callings and responsibilities. Serving others is what the Gospel of Jesus Christ is about, and in doing so, I have gained more abundance of happiness in my life. I have come to know and gain a real relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. This is the real reason why I am a Mormon. I have come to appreciate His sacrifice for me, and the opportunity I have to repent, change, and be better everyday. I love my Savior so much, and am grateful for His wonderful example to me and everyone. I hope through my example I will be able to share His love with all my family, friends, and neighbors.

How I live my faith

I have the opportunity to serve a full time two year mission to the Philippines. This gives me the wonderful opportunity to act as a representative of Jesus Christ, and help others come unto Him. As I share the joy the gospel brings to my life, hopefully others will be able to feel that joy and desire to have the same. I have always tried to be an example to those I am around by acting as a follower of Jesus Christ.
