Hi I'm Danelle

I'm a Mormon. I am loving life and having a new baby girl!

About Me

I am a new mommy, I am an astronomer and a high school physics teacher. I love to play the piano and sing, sometimes at the same time, and try new things. I love sports and I ran the LA marathon in 2006 with a great friend I met during grad school at UC Irvine.

Why I am a Mormon

Many of my ancestors were Mormon and I was raised Mormon. I believe the Book of Mormon to contain the word of God. I have followed Moroni's Promise and prayed about the truthfulness of the Book of Mormon and I have received an answer through personal revelation through the Holy Ghost that it is true. It testifies of our Savior Jesus Christ, along with the Holy Bible. Jesus Christ loves us, has paid for our sins, has overcome sin and death, and we can follow Him and become more Christlike through Faith, Repentance, and Baptism into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I try to live every day better than the last, and I get so much joy in the service of others. Life is to be enjoyed and we can find happiness in the nurturing of others, and especially through our families.

How I live my faith

I try to make right choices, serve others, and live each day better than the last.

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

Mormons don't worship Joseph Smith, we believe that God is the one to worship and who should get the "glory," "the glory be thine" as it says in the scriptures. We do believe that he has been an important part in the church. He is a prophet and by the power of God he was able to translate the Book of Mormon and restore the true church and the Holy Priesthood to the earth. He has done a marvelous work and a wonder.
