Hi I'm Derrick

I grew up in Washington state. I play and coach volleyball. Dancing is my passion. I am a Mormon

About Me

I'm a college student but I am taking two years off to serve a full time mission. When it comes to my hobbies and interests two things stick out way above everything else and that is volleyball and dance. Those two things are my greatest passions in the world. I was actually on both my college volleyball team and dance team. I have two older siblings and two younger siblings so that makes me the middle child and its awesome!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church so growing up I was a Mormon because my parents were Mormon. I've always known that what I learned growing up was true though. But it was not until I finally sat down and read the Book of Mormon that I really knew without a doubt that this is the right and true church. Honestly I didn't read the Book of Mormon until I was 19 and I am 20 now and I so wish that I would have read it sooner! That book gave me so much knowledge and a better understanding of everything that I had concerns or questions about and when I knelt down and prayed after finishing the book and asked if this book was true with all the faith I had; I got this overwhelming feeling of joy and received my answer that it was true and that this gospel is the true gospel. This gospel brings so much joy and comfort to everyone and I know with all my heart that it is true and that is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Soon I will be living my faith by serving as a full time missionary and I will be constantly serving and helping others for two whole years. I will also do my best to bring as many people into this wonderful gospel as I can. Currently I live my faith by just being very welcoming to everyone I can about the church. I love to share the gospel as often as I can so that others can have and feel all the joy that I do from it.
