Hi I'm Devin

I'm a singer, athlete, and movie lover. I study Optometry. I married an artist who loves to run, and we have 1 son. I'm a Mormon

About Me

My wife and I just moved to San Antonio, Texas so I could start Optometry school. We have a 1 year old son who never stops moving or eating. I love playing all kinds of sports, soccer, volleyball and racquetball are just some of my favorites. I run just to stay in shape, but I just did a marathon with my wife this summer so we could check it off our bucket list. I grew up in a very musical family and have been singing my whole life. My friends and I even had an a cappella group in high school. I love watching movies and good tv shows. I do enjoy a good book when the subject is right.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born in a Mormon family and come from a long line of Mormons. But I was raised to understand that I needed to know for myself that this is the true church of Christ on the earth. It all made sense to me since I was a child and I never felt like it was wrong. Yet I knew that I had to ask God in a personal prayer whether or not this was his true church. I was a determined 15 year old who wanted an answer. So I decided to fast, or go without food or water, until I felt like I got an answer. I fasted for 3 days and prayed like I had never prayed. I felt so much peace and calm like I had never felt in my life. I knew that my Heavenly Father was telling me that this was the true church because of the spirit that he sent to confirm that to me. Since then I have never doubted even for a minute the truthfulness of this gospel. I love this gospel and this church and know that all of it is true. It's so simple, if the church is true, it's all true. It has shaped me into who I am today and I wouldn't know what to do with my life without it.

How I live my faith

I currently just moved into a new area and will soon find out how we can best serve those around us. But we are already trying help out those we have met by helping others move in or out and inviting the local missionaries over to our home for dinner.
