Hi I'm Derek

I am serving the Lord in the Colorado Colorado Springs Mission. I am passionate for history, music, and service. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I was fortunate enough to be born to devout and loving parents who raised me in the Church. After my mission, I will be studying criminal justice at university. I love learning about history, culture, and current events and knowing that I have a part in the progression of our society is deeply satisfying. I am an enthusiast of classical music, especially the deep, emotional works of Dvorak, Copland, and the like. I also enjoy some of the more avant-garde pieces by John Adams and Philip Glass. I love getting to know other people on individual bases and I am extremely attached to the mountainous desert countryside where I live.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because my experience in the Gospel has brought the most joy I have ever felt in my life. I have read the Book of Mormon and have a testimony that it is the true writings of ancient prophets. I know that this church is Christ's restored Gospel and that Thomas S. Monson is a latter-day prophet of God.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving as a missionary in the Colorado Springs area. In the past, I have served in leadership positions for my seminary and other youth groups.
