Hi I'm Daniel England
I'm a university student, a Canadian, and I'm Mormon.
I was born in British Columbia Canada, and I lived there for the majority of my life. I received a BA in philosophy, political science and economics from the University of British Columbia and am currently studying early Christianity at the University of Alberta. My main hobby is learning. I love learning new things - both secular and spiritual. I enjoy weight training and cycling as well as the occasional video game. I have two older brothers and three adorable little nieces.
Why I am a Mormon
My parents are Mormons and that's initially why I was Mormon. However, I am now a Mormon because God has let me know that the message of "Mormonism" is true. I developed a strong conviction of and belief in Jesus Christ and His gospel as I read and pondered the words of the Book of Mormon. The Book of Mormon changed my life. It helped me overcome habits of sin. It opened my eyes to all of life's possibilities. As as I pondered and prayed about the Book of Mormon, the Lord answered my prayers and let me know that the book is true. When I received that heavenly witness I also came to know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that Christ's church is once again on the earth. Now that I live the teaching of Jesus Christ I have more joy in my life than ever before. Being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is very fulfilling. It gives me so much purpose and direction to my life. I love being a "Mormon".
How I live my faith
I strive to follow the teachings and example of Jesus Christ in my daily life. If I see someone in need I try to help them out the best that I can. It may be that an older person needs a visit, or that a homeless person needs some money, or even as simple as having a smile on my face. I do my absolute best to keep the commandments God has given us, and I try to share the message of the gospel with others. I visit people each week who have fallen away from the gospel of Jesus Christ and I share scriptures with them and encourage them to come closer to Jesus Christ and His church.
