Hi I'm Danny

I'm a History Major, I love learning about other cultures and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love History and learning about other times, peoples, cultures and places. I believe that there is a lot that we can learn and grow from as we truly seek to understand and appreciate the world in which we live. I love to play all sports, even if I don't impress anyone (and I won't). I am a college student and I really enjoy learning and studying. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family, and can enjoy myself doing pretty much anything.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the Church, but I would say that I am a Mormon because I love the Gospel and the Church of Jesus Christ. There have been times in my life when I have struggled to find happiness and peace, but in my life I know that when I follow the teachings of the gospel that I find great peace and happiness. There is nothing better for us, there is no other source of happiness that is so real. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy, and I love it.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by attending Church meetings every Sunday, by reading the scriptures and praying daily, and by serving in various callings in the Church. The greatest way that I would say that I live my faith is by trying to serve others in any capacity. If I have made someones day even a little better, then that is something worthwhile.

What is the Atonement of Jesus Christ? Why was it necessary for Jesus Christ to sacrifice His life?

Danny
We came to earth to be tested and to prove our faith to see if we would follow the commandments of our Heavenly Father. But, as humans and mortals we will fall short and sin. It is for that reason that Christ came to earth to pay the price of our sins, so that we can be cleansed of them. He paid the penalty of our sins, and if we will rely on Him and repent, or change, then we will be forgiven of our sins, as it says in Isaiah "though our sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow." I know that Christ also suffered through our pains, and sorrows and hurts, so that He can help us in our times of need and sorrow. Because of Christ we are never alone, and we can always have another chance to be clean. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Danny
When I look at the world around me, with all of its beauties and wonders, and the skies and all of the wondrous gifts that we have, the only explanation that makes sense to me is that there is a power that created it. These things did not just appear, and they did not just evolve out of nothing. Another thing that helps me to know that there is a God is the people that are in the world. So many people are seeking to help others, and to make the world better and kinder and happier. So often we find someone to help us during a rough day and I do not think that these are coincidences. I believe that there is a God, and that His influence is what helps us to seek to be kinder and more loving. Show more Show less

Can husband and wife be together forever? Do you believe that families will live together in heaven?

Danny
YES!!! When we look at our lives and around the world we can see that families are some of the most important and cherished gifts that we have. Our Heavenly Father loves us, and He knows how important our families are to us, and central to His plan is that families can be together forever. If we follow God's plan for us, our families can be eternal, and that is one of the happiest things that we can ever understand. Show more Show less
