Hi I'm Dalan

I love skiing, dirtbiking, being outdoors, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am from a small town in Idaho. I grew up on our family farm and love working with my family. My hobbies are riding dirtbikes, hunting, camping, skiing, listening to music, and hanging out with family and friends! My family and I are really close. My sister and I have Type 1 Diabetes and have both struggled through the years together to be able to control and manage it. We have been there for each other and have a wonderful relationship. Along with my sister, i have my wonderful parents who have always been there for me and have provided so much love and support to me through all the years! I have been so blessed to be able to be brought up in the Gospel and see all the blessings that it brings to me and my family! It has changed my entire aspect of life and brought me so much joy.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of the church my whole life and have had so many wonderful examples to help show me the way. Being raised in the church i always went to church with my family and did all the things that are expected of me, but there came a time in my life when i had to find out for myself that it was true. It did not just come over night and i never had a miraculous expirence, but as i honestly searched for truth it came. I began to realize all of the tender mercies of the Lord in my life as well as in my family, all the blessings, everything that has been givin to us as we have been obediant to what has been asked of us as children of God. There is no doubt in my mind that God lives and that he has a plan for us. There can be so much comfort and peace found in our lives as we come to the realization that God is there and that we have the ability to talk to him through prayer, that Christ lives today and has suffered for each and every one of us, and that through him we can some day prove ourselves worthy and return to live in His presence. When we relize this, life takes on a whole new perspective. As lifes trials confront us we will find greater happiness and comfort that all will be O.K.. We may not understand why, but we will relize that God has his hand in every phase of our life and is testing, guiding, and supporting us through our struggles. So many blessings are hinged upon the simple principle of Obediance. God loves us and wants us to be happy! It is really just that simple.

How I live my faith

Living the Gospel is daily effort that brings me closer to my savior! Through constant prayer for strength and guidance i find comfort and greater ease following the spirit, alowing me to grow more than ever achievable on my own! I have the opertunity to serve others everyday and see the happiness that the Gospel brings to them. What a joy it is to help those around you follow the example of Jesus Christ!

What blessings can we receive through the gift of the Holy Ghost?

Dalan
We have a loving Father in Heaven who wants the very best for us and has givin us so many tools to be able to find all that he has to offer. After proper and authorized baptism, a worthy male who holds the priesthood will lay their hands on your head and give you the gift of the Holy Ghost. From that time forward he will be there to be a constant companion, as long as you are living worth of his presents. As we go through out life there will be unavoidable stuggles and challanges that arise, leaving us scared, doubting, and alone, but through the Holy Ghost we can find the comfort and direction needed at that time and forever. The Holy Ghost has blessed me so much though out my life. It is one of Gods greatest gifts he can give to his children while in this mortal life. Show more Show less
