Hi I'm Devon Kofoed

I was born in Nebraska and I'm serving a mission in Tempe, Arizona. And I'm a Mormon

About Me

I was raised in the gospel all my life. I love any outdoor sports, though my skill is sometimes questionable. My brother taught me how to ride the uncycle and I've been doing it ever since. I love to play the piano even though I can't read music very well. Horseback riding is one of my favorite activities and I even worked as a horse wrangler for three years. I appreciate most kinds of music but my favorite genre is definitely dubstep. I'm serving a mission and will be for another 18 months but so far I'm loving it. Give me any book worth reading and I'll read it and I love science!

Why I am a Mormon

I've always been a questioning person and never like to rely on 'blind faith.' But when I realized that the gospel encourages questions so that the answers will help us grow, I started putting that into action. Questions like: Is God real? Was Joseph Smith really a prophet? They plagued me for a time and took away from my faith in God and from my relationship with my family. Since they've been answered, I've found joy in where I stand in my beliefs and strive to help any I can to feel the same joy.

How I live my faith

I'm currently serving on a two year proselyting mission for the Church, so I am one of the guys in white shirts biking around Arizona. I teach people how the gospel has blessed my life and then I hope and pray that they will accept the gospel and bring the same happiness in themselves. I love watching the light come into people's eyes when they realize that they have a loving Heavenly Father.
