Hi I'm Dan

I'm from Utah and I love it here! I spend my free time with my wife and two kids chasing them everywhere. I'm also a Mormon.

About Me

Hi, I’m Dan. I was born and raised in Utah, 20 minutes from Salt Lake City. I love Utah for it’s diverse geography and distinct seasons. I have a deep love of nature and enjoy many outdoor activities. My favorites include hiking, mountain biking, skiing, and snowmobiling. My favorite place to relax year round is my family’s quaint A-frame cabin near Park City. I graduated from the University of Utah with a BS degree in Health Promotion and Nutrition. I am a a certified health educator (CHES) and a Certified Wellness Coach (CWC) with Wellcoaches and ACSM. I currently work as a Wellness Coach for a large health insurance company. I spend my time outside of work with my beautiful wife and kids relaxing and enjoying life with them as much as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born to parents who follow the Mormon Faith. I was baptized at 8 years old as many Mormon youth are. I loved the experience! I remember feeling the weight of the water on my wet white clothing and asking my dad if we could do it again. I felt incredible, peaceful and joyful feelings that day. I continue to follow the Mormon Faith because of the happiness it brings to me and my family. I believe in the core values and principles taught and I like the moral compass it provides me in the crazy world we live in. I am teaching my children the Gospel of Jesus Christ to help them have the same compass to navigate the challenges they will face as they grow. I know the teachings of the Mormon Faith are true. I have sought to know for myself. I encourage anyone wondering about this church to start asking questions. Read everything on Mormon.org and talk with missionaries. I promise you will get every question answered and will know for yourself of the truthfulness of the doctrines taught. You can pray and ask God. Pay attention to how you feel when you learn about the Mormon Faith. That is key.

How I live my faith

I have served in various volunteer capacities through the years. I served as a Missionary in Melbourne, Australia where I worked with the Vietnamese and Aussie population. I have also enjoyed teaching various age groups Gospel Doctrine and working with the Youth as a teacher and Boy Scout leader. I currently serve as a youth instructor for the 14 year old age group.
