Hi I'm Derek

I love to Yo-Yo. I love anything in the Outdoors and I'm a mormon!

About Me

I am from the Gem State of Idaho. I lived a normal life, i've actually lived in the same couple miles my whole life. I love to be me. I love music and going to concerts of all kinds. I listen mostly to Alternative music, but i will listen to about anything. Living is something that i love. I love to live and experience life because everyday brings new experiences. I am usually pretty enthusiastic about a lot of stuff. I love to have fun and just be spontaneous. I am attending college at BYU-Idaho majoring in Exercise Physiology. I plan on continuing my education and maybe going on to radiology or being a surgeons assistant.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the pure joy of the Gospel. I was born of great parents who took me to church and taught me. It wasn't until High School/College that I realized what I had in front of me. It was just dangling there for me to snatch it. I read The Book of Mormon cover to cover all the way through for the first time while i was attending college. All my life I was told that I needed to pray about The Book of Mormon. It never was important to me until I realized how much i needed it. I did pray to God and the rest is history. I knew by the thoughts and feelings that i had that The Book of Mormon was true and that I could have true joy and happiness if I listened to the scriptures and the modern day prophets. I knew for myself that truth is most important. I knew if i relied on Christ and his sacrifice that my sins and my shortcommings could be forgiven as I repented of them.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday. It is a life long decision that i have made in my life. I have served as a full time missionary and Its blessed my life to see people change their lives for Christ. I've been able to see many miracles be performed in peoples life. I try to set a good example for my family and friends as well. I want to help them all find out for themselves how good the Gospel of Christ is. I will continue to share the Gospel with everyone i can throughout my life. This is now a way of living for me. Its easy once you live it. I try to reach out to those around me and help them come closer to Jesus Christ as i set an example for them.
