Hi I'm Terri DeJohn

I was the first female emergency physician in Utah. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I suppose that my training as an Emergency Physician has allowed me to see the difference in the response of people with faith vs. people without hope when disaster happens. I know that there will always be injury, illness and death but having the knowledge that God is over all and trusting Him, changes our response to whatever happens. I am grateful to have shared my beliefs with those who struggle during these dark and difficult times. Hopefully sharing my faith has made their loss a little easier.

Why I am a Mormon

I have a testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ. His mercy and tenderness has been manifested to me. I know that this is His restored gospel. I was once sitting in the Sacred Grove, and I prayed that I could know the the truthfulness of this foundational event. A sweet spirit came upon me, and in the quiet of this peaceful setting, I knew that God and His Son, Jesus Christ had appeared to the young boy, Joseph Smith in this very place. Over the course of his lifetime, Joseph Smith was instructed to restore all the truths of Christ's church. He translated the Book of Mormon by the power of revelation. This book testifies of the divinity of Jesus Christ with great power. I am grateful for the Prophet, President Monson and the Apostles and know they have been called of God to lead His church. As a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, I have an opportunity to be a part of this work.

How I live my faith

For the past few years, I have worked in a Wound Clinic. Many of my patients have sores on their legs and feet. Occasionally, while I was working on their feet, I would think of the Savior as He washed the feet of His apostles. A special feeling would come over me as I imagined that if the Savior were here, He would wash my patient's feet. It seemed He was allowing me to fill in for Him, to show this person His love. It was a sacred honor. This is often the Lord's way; He uses someone to serve another, but both are blessed.
