Hi I'm Derek

I grew up in Salt Lake City. I love to play cello and volleyball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to play cello and volleyball. I started playing cello when I was 6 and have enjoyed playing in many different musical groups. I love classical music also appreciate almost any other type of music as long as it is well-made. I have played volleyball for 4 years and love it. Other things about me are that I love the outdoors. I love to hike, bike, and just spend time outside.Math is my favorite subject in school and I want to pursue a career in medicine or engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

I have grown up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, also known as the Mormon Church. My belief in Jesus Christ and the reality of the Church has grown slowly over the years as I have attended church and prayed. The biggest source of my belief comes from studying the word of God in the Bible and The Book of Mormon. These books have changed my life and made me a better person. This is especially true for The Book of Mormon, which is another testament of Jesus Christ. Every time t.hat I read from The Book of Mormon, I feel God's love for me personally. I know that Christ lives and loves me. And I love him, too

How I live my faith

I love to go to church every Sunday to feel the influence of the Holy Ghost and learn about the Gospel. I am the leader of the other young men in my ward and I love helping them learn and grow. Later this year, I will be serving a mission for the church in Argentina; I am so excited to share the Gospel with the people down there.
