Hi I'm Devin

I grew up in South Carolina. I love the sport of basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've grown up playing basketball and sports. I've grown up in the church in a family of 7. I plan on being a doctor after serving a mission in the Dominican Republic.

Why I am a Mormon

I've chosen to be a member of The Lord's church because I know it to be true. I also know that if I follow his commandments that I can live with my family again some day after this life. This means so much to me because my father has passed away. I know that I will see him again, which brings me peace. This is possible through the Atonement and resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I grew up in the church, but didn't know for myself that it was true until I earnestly prayed about it as a teenager. I have since found that Jesus Christ is the way to perfect happiness, and loves us more than we can comprehend. I know these things to be true, and because they are true, I hold my testimony very close to my heart.

How I live my faith

I was called as a ward missionary 6 months ago. I served my church ward by helping the missionaries serving there. I home teach three widows with the bishop of our ward, checking up on them. I have helped lead the youth the past year, being the oldest. I am now ready to serve my mission in the Dominican Republic.

Do Mormons regard the Bible as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Devin
Mormons believe in the Bible, and believe it to be the word of God. The Bible contains lesson, parables, and stories of Jesus Christ's life while on this earth. The Bible testifies that Jesus Christ is the only Begotten Son of our Father in Heaven. The Bible came from the writings of disciples of Jesus Christ, following the guidance of the Holy Spirit in recording this scripture regarding the Savior. Through a similar process, we have received additional scripture such as the Book of Mormon that supports the Bible and teaches of Christ. Show more Show less
