Hi I'm Dion Krechting

I was born and raised in Arnhem a city in the East part of The Netherlands. I now live in Draper Utah.

About Me

Aside from reading scriptures and going to church, I like reading good books, love many type of movies. My favorite ways to relax, Music.. Either listening, singing, playing the keyboard / Piano, writing songs / poetry. I enjoy the outdoors. Like Hiking, skiing, general walks, tossing or kicking a ball around. I'm a proud father and enjoy my children. I like taking trips and enjoy many a thing. I'm very open minded and like to engage in enjoyable conversations. I have a good sense of humor and like to have fun.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised Catholic from birth. My grandfather went to church on Sundays en Wednesdays. We grew up with the teachings of the Catholic Church. I was baptized as a baby and did my Commune when I was six. Over the years growing up, I put my faith aside to explore myself and find myself. I always had the Lord in the back of my mind, but was not active going to church. It was not until September of 2012, until I was given the opportunity to visit the LDS Church. It was like I was woken up from a slumbering dream. I was baptized November 2nd of 2012 and feel I've come home. I feel complete and at peace with myself. Reading the scriptures is a revelation. I feel i'm just learning and growing every day.

How I live my faith

As I indicated, I love going to church and engage myself in the teachings of the Gospel. In my first ward I was called as Ward Missionary and 2nd Sunday teacher, which I enjoyed tremendously. Right now, i'm settling here in Draper Utah and have not set on a permanent Ward. I focus on reading scriptures and applying myself to the lessons on Sunday. I like to help were I can and help my fellow man.
