Hi I'm Devin

I am from Alberta Canada, I worked as a welder, I'm serving a mission and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am the youngest of three children, I have older two sisters. I enjoy working on vehicles and doing anything with my hands. Before I graduated from high school I rebuilt a 1982 GMC truck. I worked in a custom truck shop as a welder, where I did repairs on trucks and build custom semi trucks. I have taken my first and second year of welding in college. I love being outdoors. I love to go camping fishing and snowboarding in the winter. I also love to cook. I am currently serving a mission for The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints in Utah!

Why I am a Mormon

I know that Jesus Christ lives and that this is His church on the earth. I love this gospel and the peace and happiness that it gives me. I have received many blessing from being a member of this church from doing the things that Jesus wants me to do. I know that Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father loves everyone of us and that everyone can feel Their love if they seek it. I know that we have a prophet on the earth today that leads us and receives guidance for the whole Church. I know that the Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet and that he restored the same church that Jesus Christ set up when He was here. I know all of this because I have asked my Heavenly Father in Prayer. He answered my prayer and has helped me on my path in life to get where I am today. I know that anyone who seeks Him will be able to find more peace and happiness in their lives!

How I live my faith

I had the opportunity to teach the children at church, ages 4-5 and 6-7, and loved it! The children are great and know so much about the gospel! They taught me so many things and made me want to be a better person. I am currently serving as a full time missionary for the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-Day Saints in the Utah Provo Mission! As a missionary I get to share the gospel with many people on a daily basis. It is a great to be able to help people come closer to our loving Heavenly Father. I get to help people discover the true happiness that can come from having faith in Jesus Christ and His teachings. I also get to share with people how they can be with their families after this life and forever!

Why do Mormons perform baptisms for the dead?

Devin
Jesus Christ came to the earth and showed us the way we need to live. He had charity and pure love for everyone who he came in contact with. He set the example of what we need to do in this life to return to live with our Heavenly Father again. Jesus Christ lived a perfect life while he was here and he had to be baptized in order to return to his Father in Heaven. Baptism is an essential step in returning to live with God again. Many people have not had the opportunity to be baptized by the proper authority while they lived on earth. Because God and Jesus Christ love everyone They have provided a way for those people to have this opportunity. We as members of the church go into temples and act in behalf of the people who are dead and are baptized for them using only their name. By doing this everyone who has ever lived can have the opportunity to be baptized just as Jesus Christ was. Show more Show less

How can I know Mormonism is true?

Devin
Anyone can know if the Mormon Church is true. God loves everyone and wants to be able to help them. If you ask God with faith that He will answer your prayers you can have that answer come. as you read the Book of Mormon and ask to know if its true you can experience peace, happiness, understanding and hope. These feeling that you receive are from the Holy Ghost. the Holy Ghost is called the comforter and is a gift sent from God to help us and to tell us of the truthfulness of things. When you recognize these feelings you can know what you are doing is right and good and can receive these feelings every time you ask Heavenly Father. When you do the things you learn from the scriptures and live the commandments of God you can feel an increase of happiness peace and hope through the Holy Ghost. That is how you can know its true for yourself. Show more Show less
