Hi I'm Derek Beus

I was born and raised in Utah. I love the outdoors and playing basketball. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to just be outside and go hiking, fishing, camping, etc. Sports have also played a huge part in my life mainly basketball. Basketball has been one of those activities for me growing up where you practice it every single day for years and its the most important thing to you. I learned there are more important things in life then basketball and im serving a mission this Augustin the California Irvine Mission. I cannot be more excited to serve the lord for 2 years.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a Mormon Family and growing up that's all I knew. When I became a older I had to find for myself if this Gospel is true or not. I read the whole Book of Mormon and I prayed and asked if this Church is true and if that book is true. I got an answer and I know without a doubt that this church is true. Time and time again life will knock me down But if you go to your Heavenly Father he will always pick you back up. Looking at my life and who I am I see that this Gospel has made my life the happiest is could possibly be.

How I live my faith

How Ive tried to live my faith in this Gospel is to just serve people. no matter what calling I get in this Church I always learned the best way to fulfill your duty in that calling was to just serve people in need and to show love and kindness as our Heavenly Father and Jesus would do. I participate in my wards meetings every Sunday and there is something there you cant get anywhere else.
