Hi I'm Daniel

I grew up in Utah. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am second to youngest of 8 children in my family. I enjoy reading books and having fun with my friends, and playing xbox with my nephews. I Plan to go to college for Computer Networking when I get home from my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I read the Book Of Mormon and came to know it is true by the Holy Ghost. It has brought great peace and comfort in my life. The Book Of Mormon is the word of God as with the Bible, and together will bring the fullness of his gospel. 

How I live my faith

I Live my faith by doing the small things that the gospel of Jesus Christ teaches us that we should be doing.

Why is authority to perform a baptism important?

 Authority when talking about baptism is very important. look at the example the Savior set for us when he was baptized In Matthew Chapter 3 13 Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him. 14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me? 15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. In verse 13 Christ journeyed for 3 days to get to john because john had the Authority needed to preform the ordinance of baptism. Verse 14 John knew who Christ was and knew he needed Christ. Verse 15 Christ shows us the example we all need to take by being baptized by one holding that Authority that is need. The Authority also has a name it is called the priesthood. The Priesthood is the Authority to act in gods name here on earth for the salvation of gods children, so every one that lives on earth.  Show more Show less

Do Mormons worship Joseph Smith?

NO Mormons do not worship Joseph Smith. He is a man just like you and me he made mistakes. we respect him for what he did for us and for the world as a tool in our Saviors Hands. Show more Show less

In whom should we have faith?

We should have faith in Jesus Christ who suffered for our sins so that we might be able to live with him again. From The Book of Mormon in Mosiah chapter 3 verse 17 we learn that through the name of Christ we can be saved. Mosiah chapter 3 verse 17 17 And moreover, I say unto you, that there shall be no other name given nor any other way nor means whereby salvation can come unto the children of men, only in and through the name of Christ, the Lord Omnipotent. Christ suffered for us because of his love for us. What a great blessing we have to know our savior Jesus Christ.   Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

Yes there is a prophet like Moses on the earth today. Mormon 9 verse 9 9 For do we not read that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever, and in him there is no variableness neither shadow of changing? If god has called a prophet he will continue to call prophets like Moses.   Show more Show less

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is the power and authority for man to act in the name of God for the salvation of Gods children here on earth. the priesthood was given to the the apostles by Christ but what happened to it then? Well it was removed from the earth because of the wickedness of the people at that time but is that fair. That we are missing out on the blessings that come from the priesthood not being here on earth. God is just and he wants us to have those blessings so he has restored the priesthood back to the earth once again. Show more Show less

What is the Book of Mormon?

The Book of Mormon is a volume of holy scripture comparable to the Bible. It was written by prophets of god who lived on the American continent God loved these people just as much as he loved the people that lived at Jerusalem. So he called those prophets to teach the people the gospel of Jesus Christ so that whey may know how return and live with him again. Then when the time was right God called a young man to translate them into English by the gift and power of God. This young mans name was Joseph Smith. Show more Show less

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

 Well as a missionary we will share a message about the gospel of Jesus Christ. Where the Book of Mormon comes from. Where we all came from before this life? why are we here? and where will we go when we die? How you can know for yourself if these things are true, But we don't want you to take our word on it. The real blessings come when we find out for yourselves if it is true. Show more Show less

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

We have always had the bible and it is the word of God. But over time and thought the different times the bible has been translated plan and precious truths were lost by mistake. And even some of the ordinances were changed and when someone changes the ordinances of God and God has not told then to the authority which was given to the Apostles was removed from the earth. So no one on earth could be saved in the kingdom of god. But God loves each and every one of us and He wants us to return and live with him. So God once again has called a prophet to restore that authority which is needed to preform those saving ordinances here on earth and that authority only exists in the church of Jesus Christ of latter day saints.

How can I know Mormonism is true?

The only we can know of spiritual truth is through prayer. That's it there really is no easy way we have to pray about the church and we will receive an answer from god. One thing that would help is to know what you are praying about so attending church is something we need to do first. Show more Show less

Are all Mormons required to serve a mission?

NO where we belive that a young man should if he is able to. It is their responsibility to ask and prepare to serve a mission. We belive that all mankind has the choice to choose for them selves to act or to be acted apon. All who want to serve a mission are welcome to do so. Show more Show less

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

 We teach that Baptism is a nessicary ordinance that must be proformed for us to return to live with god. Jesus Christ told Nicodemus a ruler of the Jews 3 Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God. 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. Jesus Christ is teaching us that in order for us to enter the kingdom of god we must 1. be born of water or be baptized by one who has the authority. Then 2. we must be born of the Spirit or recive the gift of the Holy Ghost by that same authority.   Show more Show less

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

We increase our faith in Christ by living the way He has commanded us to. When we do the things that he has asked us to do the holy ghost will bear whiteness to us of truth of all things. Thats why the missionarys always want us to pray and ask God the Eternal Father in the name of Christ if the things they read out of the Book of Mormon is the word of God. Show more Show less
