Hi I'm Derek

I grew up in the United States, I love writing and swimming, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the forth of six children. I grew up in southern Idaho reading, making up games with my siblings, and going on trips with my family. I graduated High School in 2014 with a love for reading and writing stories of my own. Now, I have been called to serve a mission in the France Paris Mission.

Why I am a Mormon

My faith, or trust, in Jesus Christ is the single most important thing that I have. Because I know of His reality and love for me, I have been able to become whole from hurts, changed by love, and certain that I am not cast off forever. I know that He is the same today as he was in times of old, and loves us just as much today as He did then. Because of that love, He died on the cross to provide a way for us to be made clean of our wrong doings. I have learned these things as I have studied the Book of Mormon, and the Bible, and prayed to know if they were true. When I did, I received sure knowledge that they are true.

How I live my faith

To demonstrate my commitment to follow Christ's teachings, I have participated in service projects of a wide variety, including cleaning church buildings, shoveling snow from sidewalks, visiting people in my community to make sure that everything was well in their lives.I smile every day, and do my best to seek out people around me who are not hap Now I have been called to serve as Christ's representative, to teach and preach the gospel in France.
