Hi I'm Hyrum Douglas Venema

I grew up in Rexburg Idaho. I like to work on cars and I am a Mormon.

About Me

From the time I was two years old and attaching my garbage can to my red Little Tikes car I have enjoyed modifying cars. I bought my first truck by trading my large Lego collection and a laptop. After employment at a car wash I was able to purchase a newer truck. It was here that I learned to love to modify cars and be able to use my skills and imagination. I am the third of seven children. Thus far I have survived five sisters and a little brother. We like to go on walks, play games, and read a family book.

Why I am a Mormon

I continue to follow Christ and his teachings because it brings me peace and allows me to be able to keep high moral standards. I know that through Christ we can be happy and that we can live with our families for all eternity and return to live with him again.

How I live my faith

I have been active in my church youth group my whole life. We have gone on many camp outs and outings. It has helped my develop high moral standards. I dont drink alcohol, smoke tobacco, or do drugs. I also try to use clean language and believe in living the law of chastity. Those things have blessed my life by helping me in choosing the right friends and keeping my healthy and strong. I also respect young women and it brings me peace.
