Hi I'm Daniel Guzman

I love to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

About Me

My name is Daniel Guzman, I was born in Oaxaca, Mexico. The Lord bless me to have a humble family, who always love me and support me. I was bless to live with my great grand parents, who taught me the ways of the lord, who always taught me to be honest and truth. Even though they were not members of the church during this life, they prepare me to receive the Gospel. And Finally, two missionaries came into my life, during that time I was studying with other faiths, but I felt that there was something missing, when the missionaries taught me the first time, I felt it was what I was looking for. 3 months later I was baptized with my brother. The Gospel has bless me in so many ways, then I had the opportunity to come to the United States, it was a hard decision to leave everything behind, specially knowing that I would never see my great grand parents again in this Life, coming to a different country with a different language was hard. Sometimes i felt lonely but the Lord always show me that i wasn't. I have had so many trials in life and I'm so grateful for every one of them. I have been bless to served a Mission in the Sacramento Mission. It truly change my life. I can't see myself without the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

Right before finishing High school, I had two choices to make, it was whether to go to college or to served a mission, I had being a member for almost 8 years and I knew that church was something good and something I liked but I really didn't have my own testimony, I had never read the entire Book of Mormon in my life, I knew it was a good book but that was all, I had experience really strong spiritual moments in my life but I knew there was something missing, I need it to get my own testimony, to really say with my own words "I know this is true". So I realize that it was time to let that seed grow and to see if it was a good seed or a bad one. I started reading the Book of Mormon, at the beginning I could remember some of those stories told by Nephi, I prayed every day to get an answer but the it never came, so I realize that I need it to keep reading and that the answer will come somehow. it was really interesting to learn about my ancestors and their prophecies and teachings. There were times where I drop tears of joy and sorrow as I read those stories and events but the answer never came but I keep trying and reading. Then the last chapter of the Book of Mormon came, Moroni 10, as I was reading that last chapter and read the farewell of Moroni, my view of the Book of Mormon change, I felt something I had never experience before, my heart was beating so fast, my hands were shaking, then a really peaceful feeling came to me, I knew the Book of Mormon was true!

How I live my faith

The way I live my faith its by trusting in my Heavenly Father. I know He loves me and he's always there to guide me and to lead me to the right way. Knowing Jesus Christ has change my live, through His Perfect Atonement Sacrifice I can find forgiveness and a better life for this life and the life to Come. Reading the Scriptures always makes me feel closer to Him and to know and recognize the good choices in my life. knowing more of his words has made my testimony grow so much. I know the Book of Mormon and the Bible to be true. They are the word of God and are here to help us know better the Plan of Salvation that Our Heavenly father has for us. Praying is the best way to communicate with our Heavenly Father, he is always there for us no matter what, he loves us so much and want us to keep his commandments. Praying makes me feel closer to God, i know that he answers my prayers. Going to Church and partaking of the Sacrament its something really Special for us. When we take the Sacrament we REMEMBER HIS NAME, RENEW OUR COVENANTS AND PROMISE HIM THAT WE WILL KEEP HIS COMMANDMENTS. The Temple is The HOUSE OF THE LORD, the MOST BEAUTIFUL PLACE ON EARTH. THE HOLY GHOST a member of the GODHEAD can guide our lives on the right path, he is always there for us but that depends if we are worthy enough and keep Gods commandments so he can influence in Our Lives.
