Hi I'm Drexson

I grew up in a small town. I served in the United States Marine Corps as a Infantry Rifleman. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a Marine, I joined when I was 17 and was severely injured in 2012 and was discharged at the age of 19. I have a great love for this country and the freedoms we enjoy. I love anything to do with Motocross and Dirt bikes (I guess I am kind of an adrenaline junkie). I absolutely love anything out-doors.

Why I am a Mormon

Well a major part of why I am a Mormon has to do a lot with the military. I was a baptized member from the age of 8. Born and raised in the state of Utah. But in my younger years I had a really hard falling away. I wasn't sure that the church was true. I started to come back around the age of 17 when I was deciding to either go on a Mission or go to the Military. For the first time in my life I asked God what I should do. Immediately an over powering feeling came across me and I heard a voice not of my own that told me to join the Military. (Not what you were expecting right!) So I joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17. I received a lot of criticism and harsh words that I should be going on a Mission. But I knew God wanted me to go to the Military. It was in the Military that my faith was truly tested. But for the first time in my young life, that is where I really clung to the gospel. Where I was honoring my priesthood and obeying his commandments. While serving there I have seen many miracles that with out the gospel I could not explain. From tender mercies to seeing and performing miracles. It was a true testimony builder. Because of the things I have seen there I can not and will not deny the power of this Priesthood which I hold. I can not and will not deny that this church is not 100% true. I have been so blessed to be able to be apart of these things and be able to be used as a tool thru Gods hands to perform these things. I know this Gospel to be true beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind. I know that God lives, I know his son Jesus Christ Lives, I know that the Holy Spirit is a real and separate being. I know that thru all things God makes it work. I know that we are his creation, because a life form as complex as ours could not have happened randomly. I very humbly and with my whole entire heart and soul say these things are true. In the name of Christ our savior. Amen

How I live my faith

I live my faith by example. I try to lead and show others that there is always hope in the darkest situations. I love to share my testimony when I feel prompted to do so. I love helping and serving others. Right now I am the Elders Quorum class instructor. So I teach the lessons and I love it. I try to teach outside the box and get out of the typical way of thinking. Because you cant live life inside a box.
