Hi I'm Dan Doxey

Ultimate frisbee, ski racing, 3-D animation, harp, scripture study, ice cream and smiling, all part of being a mormon.

About Me

I love to serve! (No, not food) I love to see people smile and to do things for others. There is no joy like the joy of watching someone's life be brightened. I would do just about anything to help ease the burden of someone around me! :D (I also LOVE smiley faces, so bear with me on that. :P) My favorite hobbies include: almost any sport (as long as it is Ultimate Frisbee), creating orginal 3-D animations on the computer, playing the harp, guitar, trumpet, french horn, piano, or ukelele, singing in the car and just about any clean fun that you could imagine...or have yet to imagine. ;) I like to make friends and take long walks outside. :)

Why I am a Mormon

I will try to make this very simple, but it is hard because being a mormon means everything to me. Without living prophets, the book of mormon, the church organization, the examples of the other members, the opportunities to serve and the spirit that helps me understand the Atonement of Jesus Christ I would be nothing. Every good thing that has ever happened in my life has come as a result of my membership in the church or the membership of my family members. These are the highest priorities in my life, my God and my family, and this church has guided me to come unto Christ as well as to come closer to my family. I am inexpressably grateful for that.

How I live my faith

As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ I do my best to live as close to the teachings of Jesus Christ as possible so that I can be a clean vessel worthy to receive His divine guidance. As I do this I am able to be led to the people who need spiritual help, as well as receive my own personal guidance and direction. Nothing is more important than taking care of my family, and because of this guidance, I am able to do so confidently, knowing that I am doing what God would have me do. This brings a great sense of peace and trust into my life.

Why do Mormon missionaries proselyte?

Dan Doxey
This question is close to my heart because I was a mormon missionary for two years. The simple truth for me is that I have received more direction, hope, peace and understanding through joining the Church of Jesus Christ and living the gospel of Jesus Christ and I want everyone to receive the immense joy I have received. The happiness of my family and those around me are how I measure my success in life. That was why I served a mission, because that kind of success and happiness is what the missionaries teach people how to obtain. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Dan Doxey
When the missionaries enter your home their only desire or goal is to help you to come unto Christ. They will tell you how the restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ can help you live happy and how you can know if Joseph Smith truly was called by God to restore it. They will ask you to do simple things on your own time that will bring you true happiness. I promise you that as you do what the missionaries will ask you will find greater peace and joy than you have ever expereinced before. Show more Show less

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Dan Doxey
I might be wrong, but from my experience every mormon I know (including myself) lives like every one else. We eat, breathe, sleep and occasionally we need to take a walk and think. What makes living a blast for me is that I have a goal and I know how to get there! So, life is just having fun while working to acheive what I desire most: a forever family. We know that families can be forever, not just for now, and through the guidance of the restored church we learn how to acheive this goal. It transforms a directionless, medial life into an exhilarating adventure to find the ultimate and ever-lasting treasure. :) And that, my friends, is how Mormons live. How cool is that!? :D Show more Show less
