Hi I'm Daniel

I'm studying to be a doctor. I think soccer is the best sport. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a 22 year old college student majoring in Nutrition Science and hoping to attend medical school. I love to play soccer, be with my family, read any good book there is, and eat large amounts of ice cream.

Why I am a Mormon

Whew. Good question. There are so many reasons why I choose to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. First and foremost, I know that there is a God, and that He is truly the Father of our spirits. During the hardest parts of my life, I have felt Him helping and guiding me. Not to say that I haven't struggled, I have - but He has always been there to help me through whatever comes my way. I know that our Father wants us to return to live with Him, to be with the ones we love, and to have a fullness of joy. That is our purpose here on earth - to find joy. It is Jesus Christ who makes that possible. He suffered and died for our sins, pains, struggles, sicknesses - everything. Through his sacrifice, anything that is unfair in this life can be made right. I have read the Book of Mormon, and have felt the spirit touch my heart, bringing me peace, and helping me to know it is true. It is the same feeling I have when I read the Bible - that is truly words from Him given to prophets.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith in Jesus Christ every day. I turn to the Lord each time I need to make a big decision. I try to treat others like the Savior would. When I make mistakes-and it happens a lot- I do my best to change and do better next time. With the Savior's help, anything is possible!

What is the Book of Mormon?

 The Book of Mormon is a gift from God to his children. It is a record of an ancient people's faith in the Savior. Just like the Bible it is words from God given to His representatives on the earth- prophets. A lot of people ask me why it's called the Book of Mormon. It's called that because of one of the ancient prophets who wrote in the Book of Mormon was named Mormon. The difference between the Bible and the Book of Mormon is the place in which their stories take place. The Bible in Jerusalem and The Book of Mormon in the ancient Americas. Different places, different people, different experiences, but the same witness that Jesus Christ is our Savior and Redeemer.  Show more Show less
