Hi I'm Darryl Elijah Mowry

I am a state champion in the state of Arizona for volleyball and have represented AZ in the Junior Olympics twice. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a very tall individual. Because of this, I have grown to love the sport and culture of volleyball. I won state in Arizona for my high school and have participated in the Junior Olympics twice. I plan to come back from my mission and walk onto the BYU Men's Volleyball team. I also enjoy longboarding the hills all around Arizona. I actually went to Hawaii with a good friend of mine and a major time was spent longboarding hills and scouting runs instead of surfing and body-boarding. I am 18, and really excited to be serving a mission for our Heavenly Father. I am so blessed because of the support i have received from all of my friends, family, church members, and church leaders.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. So I have always been surrounded by the gospel and its teachings. But once I started leaving the house and doing stuff on my own, i still chose to live the standards that i learned while growing up. They are so simple to follow and as bi-product of your decisions, you will feel love, joy, and happiness. At times it is hard to stay strong to the gospel, but with these hard trials, their are great rewards and blessings waiting to be poured upon you.

How I live my faith

I try to live in harmony with the gospel everyday. I try to be the same person inside of church and outside of church. Many people have come up to me and shown me that it is one of the reasons why they are my good friends. I am always happy to take people under my arm and show them what it is like to feel loved and to be a part of something bigger than themselves. A big thing that helped me with that was my Eagle Scout project that i did back when i was just in eighth grade. I was showing people that it doesnt matter how old you are to be in charge of a large project and to be able to go up to major corporations and ask if they would like the help of a scout. Never be afraid of something, especially if you don't know what the true outcome will be.
