Better in Every Way
“I found that I had a team surrounding me that cared about me and my success.”
One of the reasons I enrolled at Deseret Industries was to have an opportunity to finish school so I might provide a better life for my kids. I am a new convert to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and I sincerely wanted to move away from a past that haunted me. I found that my bishop, missionaries, job coaches, and my fellow associates at Deseret Industries also wanted to help me improve in every way possible. I found that I had a team surrounding me that cared about me and my success.
Today, I am more confident and open to doing things I wasn’t doing before. Much of what I do now is the opposite of what I did in the past. No longer does my life include drugs, drinking, or smoking. I attend church and have received the priesthood. Because of my experience at Deseret Industries, I will soon graduate from high school and now have a great job driving trucks with good pay and benefits. My whole family has been affected positively with the changes that have come. My life is better in every way.
I would recommend Deseret Industries to anyone who is looking to better his life. I thank everyone at Deseret Industries for making a difference in my life and that of my family.
