Hi I'm Dan

I can't stand being bored so I'm always trying to find fun and good things to do.

About Me

I grew up on the east coast but I've lived in tons of different places. I'm studying at my university to be a mechanical engineer so I'm always very busy with school but I really enjoy having fun with my friends and living my life the way that God wants me to. I played soccer all through high school and I miss it so I'm always looking for a spare minute to play sports when I'm not at school or work.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon not because of any pressure or conventional reasons but I just feel so spiritually full when I live my life the way God has asked through a prophet today. Many people might find it hard to accept commandments given through modern men called by God but I can confidently say that I wouldn't follow any man's religious teachings without personally praying to my Heavenly Father and asking him if these things were true. I know God loves me and because he does he's answered my prayers in which have included the question of whether the Book of Mormon really is a true book written by ancient prophets. He's also touched my heart to confirm that this is his church and he inspires apostles and prophets today. If you haven't read the Book of Mormon as a companion with the Bible and asked God with a sincere heart and real intent if these things are true I suggest you do because it has given me lasting joy which I feel is the most precious gift God can give any of his children.

How I live my faith

I am a full time mechanical engineering student and with work it's hard to find time for dating and fun things to do. I don't see my lifestyle as too strict or "no fun". I'm 22 years old. Why would I do something if I didn't want to or if it was extremely boring? I simply avoid things that I think God doesn't want to see his children doing. Yes this might meant that some things the world does for free time isn't on my to-do list but I love to dance, play sports, watch good movies, get together with my friends and be involved in my community. I am not shy at all so I'm never just sitting around. In my church congregation I am in charge of planning weekly activities for small groups of young adults my age. We get together every Monday night to be around each other, laugh, have a bit of food, listen to an uplifting spiritual thought and socialize. Living my faith is not inconvenient at all. In fact it makes my life much less complicated when I obey the teachings of a loving Heavenly Father. Jesus Christ was not ashamed to live the life asked of him. He is my Savior and it makes it much easier to stand up for what is right when I think of how he stood strong during the toughest moments anyone will have to face. There's no better way to live than the way Christ teaches us today through his servants the prophets.
