Hi I'm Dani

I grew up in the Southwestern U.S. Currently I spend my time as a wife, mother, and a college student. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am an eternal college student, I've been married for 3 years to my best friend, Hunter, and have 2 beautiful girls. I am studying Human Development and Family Relations with a minor in Psychology. I enjoy star gazing, camping, hiking, and sewing. I don't enjoy changing poopy diapers but I do what I gotta :) I love to learn and my interests are often in conflict with one another because I love both the hard and the soft sciences. I was previously a physics student determined to be an astronaut; however, I felt the Lord calling me to study the family system rather than the solar system and have found a passion and love that I didn't know I had.

Why I am a Mormon

Because I love my Heavenly Father and Savior and by following Jesus Christ's teachings I am more able to feel their love for me. As I have searched through different religious teachings finding truth here and there I find that all the questions I have are answered by our prophets, scripture, and most importantly through the Holy Ghost who is the ultimate teacher. As I follow the Holy Ghost I know that where I am going will be where Heavenly Father wants me.

How I live my faith

I have heard it said by some that it is hard to be a member of this church but honestly I've never thought that. Quite the contrary, I think it would be difficult to give myself up to many of the temptations this world offers. The gospel of Jesus Christ provides security for me. I just try to be the best example of Jesus Christ that I can be, although I'm not perfect at it. But I'm doing my best. I have the best calling (a church responsibility) right now! I get to work with the 12-13 year old young women and they are amazing ladies. They are full of spontaneity and love for me. They are teaching me about what it will be like to raise my daughters at this age and I learn so much from them. I am in charge of their yearly young womens camp next year as well and find myself relying more on the Lord to know what will be best to touch their hearts and increase their testimonies. In high school I was one of only a few members of my faith and wasn't afraid to show it. Often I would receive questions from other students about what I believed because everyone knew that I didn't drink and wasn't going to do that or do drugs. I'm grateful for the gospel because it kept me safe during those years.
