Hi I'm Dyllan

I was born on an Army base in Georgia. I was faced with everything against me. I'm a mormon.

About Me

I am one of the only people in my class who is as good at math as I am while loving to do it. This alone set me apart from my peers. For many years I have been faced with temptations of many kinds. standing out of the crowd, refusing to give in to pressure, and general lack of skills were my top difficulties. First pornographic material was introduced in 7th grade. One of my parents had a problem with alcoholism while I hardly saw the other. I was socially awkward up until my junior year in high school. I was labeled many negative titles. I was raised in a smoking family. I was raised in a society that welcomed tattoos, sexual relations, and drugs. Never had more than two or three good friends at a time. Few remain friends to this day. I am now the only child in my family that is still active. I had a hard time learning church principles, so much I had to learn myself. I am going to serve a mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know it is the way to live with my father in heaven again. This is the only church that has to this day the proper authority directly from God to baptize and use the priesthood, the power of God manifested through his worthy sons of the church. This church gives me the knowledge that I can get to where I need to be and that I am part of a bigger plan. As a child of God, I have great self-worth and purpose. I am a Mormon. I am nothing but Mormon. And I will always be as long as I have anything to say about it.

How I live my faith

My most beneficial ways of living the faith is reading the scriptures and praying everyday. Going through the day and knowing that God, who is our literal heavenly father, is watching me, smiling upon my progression. He helps me through my stumbles and my falls. He knows where I'm going, so I trust him. I serve as a home teacher in my two or sometimes three different wards I am in. Every month I visit with particular families and visit with them. I ask them how they are doing and talk with them on spiritual topics they may want or need. I also love to talk to other people, especially in larger groups.

What do Mormons believe about the nature of God?

God is a loving father who has a body of flesh and bone, like us. He is our father, and has the qualities of one. He wants the best for us, but will not give us what he believes we do not need. He is alway there, even if we can't see or feel it. Show more Show less
