Hi I'm Deryke Terrell

I grew up in Lehi Utah. I am currently serving a mission in Eugene Oregon. I 'am a Mormon.

About Me

I love sports, haha but that doesn't quite sum it up for me. I also love outdoors, anything out side works for me. Football is my favorite, but I love any sport really. I love people, my friends mean a lot to me, but more important is my family, I am so blessed to have 4 younger bothers and 1 little sister, as well as my Mom and Dad. I love music, I listen to a variety of it, and I really enjoy playing the guitar. I am pretty motivated about life in general, but at the same time I am pretty easy going, and I enjoy simple things in life, a good talk with a close one, a road trip, or a bag of frooties candy. I have dreams and ambitions, but most important to me is my family, and my faith.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised by parents who were Mormon, but I didn't always know for myself. As a freshmen in high school I attended a seminary class one day. We talked about the savior that day, and the spirit bore a powerful witness to me of the truthfulness of the things taught about the savior; and my whole soul filled with hope and joy,knowing that I had a savior, who loved and cared about me, and as I turned to him in my life, I was able to feel the relief that true forgiveness brings, and I have built upon the rock of my redeemer, ever since, slowly but surely. I know this is his gospel on the earth today, because I have experienced the blessing of the priesthood, the sacrament, the Gift of the holy Ghost, and the ordinances in the temples that are now available because of the restoration of Jesus Christ church through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I know these things to be real, and the reality of Christ and his Gospel have blessed my life with a Joy and happiness I can not explain.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a mission, which I love. It has been such a huge blessing to my life, the process of learning and growth is magnified as I serve Heavenly Father full time. It has been such a blessing to serve the people in Oregon and help them to come to know their savoir.
