Hi I'm Devon Webb

I was born into a small family, I am currently serving in the Iowa Des Moines Mission , and I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love music, I was in my middle school choir and have loved singing ever since. I spend my weekends with my friends and love to play what ever sport we may think of that day. I am an Electrical Engineering Major and I love learning about knew things. Anything that I haven't learned about before excites me and I find it fascinating to learn about other cultures. And although I would love to stay in school and continue my studies, I have chosen to go on a 2 year service mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day saints. I love to serve people and so this is a great opportunity for me to serve my fellowmen and the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the peace I feel from living the gospel of Jesus Christ. Having a knowledge that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me gives me such comfort because I know that everything will work out in the end, because he is in charge and has a plan for me. I go to church every week and feel the spirit so strongly and this gives me a break from the hustle and bustle of the week to think about how I am doing as a person and a disciple of Christ. Another reason I am a Mormon is because of the Joy the Gospel gives me. I know that the Joy the gospel gives is the purest and best form of it there is on this earth. I feel Gods love for me daily as I strive to live the teaching of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and I this gives me more joy and peace than anything else in my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by acting in my calling in my current ward and I will live my faith by serving a full time mission. My current calling in my ward is as a ward clerk, I am responsible for making sure that my portion of the wards records are correct and fixing them if they are not. I work with the bishop of our ward and his counselors to make sure that the logistical things of the ward are in order and that our ward is running smoothly.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Devon Webb
Mormons do not worship Joseph Smith. We do however worship Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. The way that Mormons view Joseph Smith can be compared to how Jews view Moses. He was a great Prophet who brought the Jews the word of God. He guided them to the place where God wanted them to and also Prophesied to them about future events. We believe that Joseph Smith did likewise Show more Show less
