Hi I'm Darian

I was born in Washington State and grew up in California. I was in the Academic Decathlon in High School. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I just graduated from High School where I was a wrestler for two years and an academic decathlete for the two after that. I was in various AP classes and I love to learn and challenge myself. I come from a family of gamers and if I haven't played a board or card game, I have heard of it. I am about to serve a two year mission in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I have learned for myself the truthfulness of this church. I have grown to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, He died for me and my sins specifically as He has died for each and every person's sin individually and specifically. I never had one mighty moment where the truth was witnessed to me but every time I pray, I feel a peace and comfort that can only described as divine. I love this church and I know that it is true. I love my Heavenly Father, I love Jesus Christ. I know that they are real and they always watch over us.

How I live my faith

I regularly enjoy participating in service projects for the community and for other members of the church. I act as a family history consultant, meaning I help others learn how to become active in their own family history.

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

No Mormon is required to serve a mission, we do it because we love the Lord and we have felt the truth of this Gospel. When you have something that is special to you, you want to show it to as many people as you can because its exciting. A mission is no different, we serve missions because we have something that is special to us and we want to show it to the world. I chose to serve a mission because I know this church is true, I love this church and I love the impact it has had on my life. I want others to be able to share the joy I have and the best way I know how is to serve a mission. Show more Show less
