Hi I'm Danny

I'm a husband, father, law student, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am married and have one child. My wife and I enjoy walks with our son (only when it's warm outside). I am in my first year of law school enjoying every minute of it. In my spare time, I like to read, play basketball, and do anything outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

Simply put, I know The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the true church of Jesus Christ because the Holy Ghost has testified to me of its truthfulness. I know it in my mind and heart. I know that Joseph Smith saw God the Eternal Father and His son, Jesus Christ. Through the prophet Joseph Smith, Christ’s gospel was restored in its fullness. I also know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God. It’s like a breath of fresh air when I read it. Over my life, I’ve listened to modern day prophets. Each one has brought a sweet, peaceful comfort to my life of daily challenges. I know that Thomas S. Monson is our current, living prophet, and his counselors and the twelve apostles are prophets, seers, and revelators. Because I know these things, I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Part of my assignment in the church is visiting two families that have been assigned to me by my local leaders. I visit them at least once every month but try to call, text, or email frequently throughout the month. My responsibilities are to watch over and be with and strengthen them. I love the families I home teach. They are becoming great friends. I also teach a class on Sunday to young men ages 12-14. The lessons focus on how to live the gospel of Jesus Christ by honoring one's priesthood. The priesthood is authority from God delegated to men to bless the lives of others. These young men also learn to excel in scouting--which I love. I learn a lot from these boys; it's a great opportunity to participate in a program that has far reaching implications for future generations.
