Hi I'm Dillan Passmore

I'm a college student. I'm an avid reader and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I'm one of the many young adults in this world that are trying their best to make decisions to improve their lives. I'm currently attending college and am majoring in Journalism and Political Science. I want to become a lawyer after I finish my bachelor's and work to improve the justice system that way. I love reading the news and whatever book I can get my hands on. I'm also a big stats nerd. Yeah, I love hiking, backpacking, and basically anything outdoors. I like playing soccer even though I'm not very good at it. I'm also a Ravens fan and love Baltimore.

Why I am a Mormon

I wasn't always a very enthusiastic believer of the Gospel. I used to hold a silent hate against people who showed faith in the church or God. I would think that they were foolish, because the concept of faith can seem to exist without any reasonable proof. But I really had to humble myself and study and work to learn more about the gospel and the concept of faith. I prayed and asked God if this was true, and I was told that it was. Moreover, the gospel brings so much peace in my life. We live in a world of turmoil and strife but it is through Christ that we can gain peace in this life and eternal happiness in the life to come. I know that "[The Gospel of Christ] is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth..." (Romans 1: 16) I know that men can come closer to God by living by the principles taught in the Gospel and that it has the power to bring incredible happiness and joy unto all men.

How I live my faith

I'm not perfect by any sense of the word, but I like to try to live my life in way that resembles that of Christ's life-just trying to help others in whatever way I can. There's a lot of suffering in the world and I believe that we should all take time to help relieve whatever sorrow we can in the world. I'm not the best at doing this, but I try to personally minister to others in whatever capacity I can and help them live better lives.

What is being a Mormon like?

It's hard to say, because I suppose it's very much like being anyone else. We live our lives and try to just do our best. One thing I would say is nice is there is a lot of emphasis on gaining knowledge and peace through not only conventional wisdom but also through a relationship with your Heavenly Father. I have a lot of peace in my life because I know that God loves me and has provided for me to have the fullness of the Gospel in my life. It's amazing and I'm happy to be a Mormon! Show more Show less
