Hi I'm Dan Hughes

I live at 8200 feet in the Rocky Mountains above Denver. I own a small business that makes tradeshow displays. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am the Dad to six kids from teenagers to toddlers. I own a small company that makes graphics and frames for tradeshow displays. Even though the business can demand lots of hours, I love to find time to go for a hike in the mountains in the summer and hit the slopes in the winter. My home is adjacent miles of mountain trails that I try to find time on every day. To keep up with my kids I have started working on ski jumping and riding boxes in the terrain park. It's not real pretty, but mostly fun with a bit of terror.

Why I am a Mormon

I love the gospel of Jesus Christ. In His Church I learn of Him which helps me to focus on things that are most important. I know he loves me and wants what is best for me and my family. To help me he has sent prophets to teach his word and commandments. Simple and amazing, I can hardly believe how blessed I am to have such direction in my life.

How I live my faith

I help the Bishop in our ward as one of his counselors. A Mormon Bishop has the responsibility to administer to the needs of the entire congregation. This can be an overwhelming challenge for anyone, but he doesn't have to do it alone. I have seen the Lord help our Bishop inspiring him as he counsels people through the toughest of problems. As a counselor I try to help the Bishop as he delegates assignments that need to be fulfilled. I might ask someone to give a talk in church on prayer, find volunteers for overnight "bear patrol" at girls camp or meet with the youth to discuss the challenges and pressures they face in school. Whatever it may be, I know that I contribute and that the service we offer in the Church makes a difference in the lives of others in the congregation.
