Hi I'm Damon Joseph Smith

I am from Washington State. I'm about to leave to serve a mission in the Tennessee Knoxville Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I like to play music; I sing, play guitar and a bit of piano. I'm currently finishing my associates degree online through South Puget Sound Community College, and simultaneously working about 30 hours per week at the New York City Department of Education as a data analyst intern.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the church, but it came to a certain point, as I think it does in many peoples' lives where I had to make my own decision, to live worthily, follow the commandments, and prepare to serve a mission. As I have done so, my knowledge of the scriptures, my relationship with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and my relationships with family and friends have improved drastically. I love this gospel and I am so grateful for the difference it has made in my life; it has helped me to love other people more fully, and to know and love my Savior as well.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving on the stake youth committee, called the youth executives in my stake. I help plan and carry out youth events.
