Hi I'm Danica
I'm an athlete, I work in juvenile corrections, and I laugh at my own jokes because I think I'm funny. I'm a Mormon.
I simply strive for happiness. Whether it's playing sports all day long, camping, reading, or sitting outside talking to family and friends, I love it. I graduated with a Bachelor's of Science degree in Psychology, with and emphasis in Drugs and Alcohol Counseling, and have been certified in Criminology. Working in juvenile corrections has helped me realize how much I want others to enjoy that happiness too. I have a huge variety of interests ranging from doing anything active to things like making jewelry and oddly enough, cleaning. Oh yes, and I love some good country music!
Why I am a Mormon
This question brings me back to the 'About Me' section. It all revolves around that happiness and joy. I've chosen to be a Mormon because of those simple but significant feelings of happiness I felt as I learned truths about the gospel. And I continue to be a Mormon because through all the stress, trials and heartache there is in life, I have continued to find peace as I study and live the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am a Mormon because the Book of Mormon has helped me develop a personal relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ, and it has helped me be more sensitive to the Spirit so I can stay on that direct path back to our Heavenly Father.
How I live my faith
I live my faith through doing simple yet significant things every day such as reading the scriptures, praying and attending church meetings. I live it because I love it. No matter what my surroundings are, whether I'm going to school, at home with family, in a counseling session with individuals who struggle with drug and alcohol addictions, or serving as a full-time missionary in the Mississippi Jackson Mission, I remember that I am a daughter of God and He loves me. That simple truth defines who I am, and determines how I live my faith.
