Hi I'm Daniel P Maughan

I can't talk or walk well because of a near-fatal auto/pedestrian accident. I love God, my family & life. I'm a Mormon!!!

About Me

I am the second of ten children and the oldest living of four boys and six gorgeous sisters. My beautiful wife and I are parents of four children; the last born since my accident in 1986. As of 2015, we also have been blessed with 13 Awesome grandchildren. I had the opportunity to serve a religious mission in Lima Peru from 1977-1979. I was able to teach many special families the Gospel of Jesus Christ and see the Happiness they found as they accepted Him and their new way of life.

Why I am a Mormon

I see others suffer because of loss of loved ones and other sadness which life brings to some. The Gospel gives us Hope of a Better Life and that Life is Eternal and our Families Can Be Forever. Our Father in Heaven wants us ALL to be Happy and sent his son to the Earth to Show us the way, to Establish his church, Take upon himself our sins and allow ALL mankind to be pardoned if they will Follow Him, Remember Him Always, Keep His Commandments, Bless the lives of the needy and Endure to the End. He was also Resurrected from the Dead and granted the Gift of Resurrection to ALL Men! (I LOOK FORWARD TO THE RESURRECTION WHERE WE WILL ALL HAVE PERFECT BODIES! ;-)) We will ALL have the opportunity to Accept or Reject the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the blessings that come.

How I live my faith

Because of my accident I can't do all the things most others can do; such as walk and talk... ;-) I have a power chair (Jazzy) and a recumbent trike that allow me to get around. I do have a BIG Smile. I try to befriend all I meet. These are some of my beliefs - "We believe in being honest, true, chaste, benevolent, virtuous, and in doing good to all men; indeed, we may say that we follow the admonition of Paul - We believe all things, we hope all things, we have endured many things, and hope to be able to endure all things. If there is anything virtuous, lovely, or of good report or praiseworthy, we seek after these things." (13th Article of Faith) "And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins." 2 Nephi 25:26 I have Pass-Along Cards I carry to share with others - since I can't talk well I smile and hand them a card that tells of the visit of Jesus Christ to the American inhabitants after his Resurrection from the Dead. He Lives! The Book of Mormon is a record of his visit and is another witness with the Bible that He Is The Son of God!
