Hi I'm Daniel

I lost my job and started a family business to provide for our needs. I'm grateful for my faith in Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy hiking, nature photography and doing genealogy. About a year and half ago, my manager came to say we were all going to be laid off and that we should look for other jobs. I prayed about it and felt that the job would last a little while and then end. I felt I should prepare by developing a business. The job lasted for a year and a half during which time I studied and prepared for the eventuality. Now my wife, sons & I have started a business and it's looking hopeful so far.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day saints. I've seen friends who lived their religion and some who didn't. Those who do seem happier and at peace. In my experience, living life as the Prophets & Apostles teach opens the windows to Heaven's influence and guidance. I don't regret my decision to follow the Lord and His teaching as taught by the LDS church.

How I live my faith

I strive to read scriptures each day and do what God's Prophets teach. I work to keep the commandments.  When I was young, my dad told me that business isn't always Christian. I do my best to ensure the business puts family first not money. 

In whom should we have faith?

Daniel
Faith in Christ and family relationships are about the only things we can take with us out this life. Jesus taught "Ask and ye shall receive." To understand and believe deep down that it's true is the beginning of a powerful faith. To believe deep down that Christ will judge all of us so that we don't have to hold a grudge or seek revenge is the beginning of the peace that He promised. There is a connection between keeping the commands that Jesus taught and our freedoms individually and as societies. There is no other church teaching the commandments of God as effectively as the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, IMO. Show more Show less
