Hi I'm Daner Saaid

I'm an Iraqi and a Mormon ! 've grown up in Sydney ! I love the Book Of Mormon ! Let us reach our Divine Potential

About Me

My name is Daner and i'm the oldest of 4 children and we all live with our mum which is awesome ! my dad is still and always will be the man ! I came to Australia at 6 months old and grew up in Sydney my whole life and been loving it. I love my sports especially the Rugby and the NBA, i love Church Dances, i love my music, reading, chilling with friends, going out with the Missionaries, eating, sleeping, i love spending time with the family as we have come closer since i joined the Church. Life's great...don't hate haha...something i learnt on the way... I'm currently Serving a Mission !!! and I love it..

Why I am a Mormon

I joined the Church through 2 of my friends since we both lived in the same area and we would always go to each other's houses as we were so close in our friendship. We considered ourselves brothers. One tuesday night they were on their way to mutual as i was on their way to their house and they invited me to come and us kids grew up in a home where my mum taught us that God exists, but we didn't practice any religion at all ... So i asked my mum if i could attend Mutual and she was fine with it. I enjoyed attending Mutual and then also Church..i met the Bishop and he invited me to attend again to Mutual and i did and then he invited me to Church and i hesitated at the start cos the world views Church as boring haha and eventually went 4weeks later and loved it. So then i had lesson's with the Missionarie's with my friends and then had my own lesson's and 3months later i was baptised. Miraculously, there was a family who lived behind us had kids who went to the High School i was going to and we all seen each other at Church that following Sunday and they took me in as one of their family and being with them has helped me grow. Best decision i ever made in my life. Just like President Hinckley said: "Being a Member of the Church is not easy." I know this Church to be true, I know Jospeh Smith to be a Prophet of the Lord and Jesus Christ is OUR Redeemer, Lord and King. This Gospel really is good news and i pray to have the experience to continue coming closer to God everyday.

How I live my faith

My Faith is what takes me through everyday and though it ain't perfect i TRY my hardest to pay attention and learn from everyone who counsels me and helps me and i do my best to do what i can for the Church and my Heavenly Father. Times get tough but i know that every time i try my best to do what the Lord wants, I grow as my Faith grows. Setting an example is the hardest thing for me to do also .. ( I have many weaknesses haha )but when someone helps me set an example i can help someone else. I love being apart of the Gospel because everything i do i always TRY to look at life in an Eternal Perspective and think what would the Jesus or the Prophets do? In saying...My Faith grows by everyone's actions around me and they help me grow mentally physically emotionally and spiritually and i'm grateful =D. The Book Of Mormon is so true ! It's been my source of peace when times get tough ! and it has never failed me =).
