Hi I'm Derek

I grew up in Ogden, Utah. I play lacrosse, snowboard, play guitar and am currently a full time missionary. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love the outdoors. Specifically hiking, camping, snowboarding, and hunting. i have spent my whole life in the church. I am currently serving in Malaga, Spain on a full time LDS mission. I graduated high school in 2014 from Fremont High School in Plain City, Utah. I played lacrosse for Fremont all the way through high school.

Why I am a Mormon

Honestly I grew up in the church, and then after time I truly found out why I'm a Mormon. I'm Mormon because I know that Christ is my Redeemer. He paid for my sins, and knows my pains. I'm Mormon because I have read The Book of Mormon and I know that it is true. Joseph Smith was called as a prophet when God and Jesus Christ appeared to him two hundred years ago. I know that this is the church of Jesus Christ, restored again in these last days so that we may have a full knowledge of God's plan for us.

How I live my faith

I love service projects. I am an Eagle Scout and for my project I cleaned up a local park. I cut up logs that had fallen over and cleaned out small twigs so as to help prevent the spread of wildfires. I am a full time missionary and serving has been the best decision of my life. Every day I find joy in sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone.
