Hi I'm Devin Reading

I was raised in Florida and in the Gospel.I am serving in the Brisbane, Australia Mandarin Chinese speaking Mission. I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love reading books and playing basketball. Some of my favorite works are the Lord of The Ring Trilogy, Harry Potter, A Brief History of Space and Time, and the Book of Mormon. I may not be very good at basketball but I make up for it with height and enthusiasm.I have fun juggling when i am bored. I have a talent for singing and have recently discovered that I love ballroom and choreographed dancing. I like playing board games and video games with my family and like just being able to spend time with them. I'm not going to college yet and instead am serving my full time mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church and have been in it all my life, but don't think that is the only reason why i am still a member. I have had my challenges as I have grown in the Church and have gained a testimony of my own in its truthfulness. A big part of why I am still a member is the Book of Mormon. I have read it and have prayed and received a witness that it is the word of God, just like the Holy Bible is. Because of that and the companionship of the Holy Ghost I have been able to make it through the trails in my life. I believe that Joseph Smith is a prophet of God and that we still have prophets on the Earth. I sustain and recognize Thomas S. Monson as the current prophet of the Lord and being able to hear his words and the words of the Lord's Apostles have helped my stay true to the Gospel of Christ. I am a Mormon because I love it and I love my fellow members in the Gospel

How I live my faith

I live my faith by serving the people in my ward and community. I help our members move into and out of the ward and enjoy saying hello and meeting all the new faces that have been coming to our ward.I was a member of the Stake Youth Committee ( planing activities for my region's youth to do) and helped organize a Easter play celebrating the Birth, Life, Death, and Resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I preform all the callings that I have been given and assist the children Sunday classes when they need it. I have helped prepare, bless, and pass the Sacrament every Sunday and enjoy being able to visit our Temples.
