Hi I'm Dana

I live in Oregon and I have the cutest dog in the world!

About Me

I'm a wife and I'm a mom. I'm a teacher (Elementary aged children and music). I'm a composer. I enjoy the outdoors and water sports. I enjoy laughing and reading a great book. I love to eat sour patch kids with hot, buttered popcorn.

Why I am a Mormon

It's the best thing I know and the best thing I've got! I was raised in a wonderful, Mormon family, but I've learned on my own that the principles the gospel teaches are true, and the joy and strength it brings are irreplaceable. When I was about 12 years old, I was at a Girls Camp, and we began to sing the children's song, "I Am A Child of God". The warmth I felt, and the sureness that it was true that I was a child of God, has never left me. I want to live and help others live so that they we can live again with our Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

The best I can each and every day. I try to teach my children and share my faith with them, even though they are grown up! I'm currently a Sunday School teacher for 15 year olds, and I love helping them learn and gain a love for the Savior, as well as learn how they can be faithful and happy in their school surroundings. One of the other things I like to do best is to create music that inspires others and brings joy.
