Hi I'm Daxton

I was born in Texas and raised in Arizona. I love playing any type of sport and I also love music. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a person of many interests ranging from music to school to sports. I recently graduated from high school and am preparing to serve a mission in Fort Worth, Texas speaking Marshallese. I play the piano, and the drums and I love creating my own songs and composing especially on piano. As far as sports go, I love soccer, basketball, and almost any other sport.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon, because it helps me be happy. Even in the hardest of times, whether it's the passing of a loved one, stress of school and family life, or something else, I always know that I can find hope, happiness and love through the gospel. It is reassuring to me that God and Jesus Christ will always love me no matter what I have done wrong in my life, and this knowledge always motivates me to keep pressing forward. As I follow God's commandments, he blesses me with joy and encouragement through any trial that life gives me. Every day, I am inspired by the words of God through the scriptures, the modern leaders of this church, and the personal revelation I have received through prayer. I don't know what I would do without this gospel. I KNOW that it's true. I know it for a fact, and you can too if you patiently, humbly, and continually pray to God for that knowledge and strive as hard as you can to follow His commandments no matter how difficult it might be sometimes.

How I live my faith

I love going to church and serving my fellow church members. I've held a few different positions that have involved organizing activities for my peers in the youth group, and for my classmates in seminary. I currently work at a daycare for mentally handicapped adults, and I appreciate the opportunity to serve members of the community.
