Hi I'm Devon

I am a missionary in the Virginia Chesapeake Mission, I am an Eagle scout, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am preparing as of now to serve a mission in Virginia. Preparing has been an amazing experience and I can't wait to be out there teaching and doing the Lords work. I play guitar and the ukulele. I enjoy sports and doing anything out doors or in the water. I wake board and ski and tube and love spending time out on a lake. Camping is one of my favorite things to do, I think that is why I liked being a scout so much. Anyway I love having fun and do not like school at all. However after my mission I will be furthering my education at Dixie State University. And as much as I dislike school I am actually really excited about college.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is Jesus Christ's true gospel on this Earth today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that Joseph Smith having the faith that he had helped restore the whole truth. I found all this out because I read the book and I prayed for myself. The Book of Mormon has brought me closer to Jesus Christ than any other book and I am grateful for that. The Spirit testifies of all truth, and I can not deny the truth that was testified to me when I myself prayed about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon. I know that when I share the Book of Mormon with others, it is the word of God, and how great a thing that is. This one thing in my life, the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, has brought me so much joy. And now I get to share it. That is why I a Mormon, because of the true joy and the truthfulness of this gospel.

How I live my faith

I live my faith as much as possible. I think even more so now that I am serving a mission. I have been on my mission for a year, and love every second of it. It is amazing how close you grow to your Heavenly Father when serving those around you. I strive to live my faith everyday. And not only live it, but share it with others so they can live it. And I do this because there is true joy and happiness that comes from living the gospel.
