Hi I'm Dani

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a mom of 3 children who keep me on my toes and learning continually. I have been married for 13 years my husband has just recently finished college with his bachelor degree. I love cycling, running , scrapbooking, reading spending time with my family and with friends.

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up I knew there was a God, my parents always shared that with me. We never read the Bible or went to church but I knew that there was a God. I had friends that were LDS (mormon), and I would go to church with them occasionally. I remember loving the way their home felt the way their families worked together and did things for others. I remember they each had so much respect for others and always included our family no matter their beliefs or lifestyles. When I got older I got baptized in the church because my friends were to me it was a trend and I lived in Utah it was "normal". I didn't attend church regularly by the time I was 13 I didn't go at all and didn't want anything to do with it. But when i turned 18 I woke up one morning realizing that the way I was feeling the way i was living wasn't leaving me feeling "happy" or "relaxed". In fact it was the exact opposite. I was ornery I was no fun to be around unless I was using something to relax me. I went on a trip with a friend to clear my mind and try and figure out what was going on in my life what I was missing. I met my now husband. He had such a great spirit about him. I felt lighter and I wanted to know what he had that I didn't. He invited me to church, I very reluctantly went with him. When I walked into the chapel (where we meet as a congregation) I felt so much love I felt so much joy I had tears streaming down my cheeks. I still didn't understand why, I had forgotten that God was there that he loved me and he was telling me as I sat there in those pews. I can't tell you what was spoken of that day. But I can tell you what was spoken to me was unconditional love forgiveness and home. I have never stopped going back since that day. I never will that day increased my faith and filled my heart with more joy than I can ever explain.

How I live my faith

Since my "personal conversion" I have become very active in the church. I have met so many wonderful people learned the value of serving my neighbors, friends and family. I get to work with the youth in the church the 12-18 year old girls. It is so much fun to watch theses Young Women learn about the church, learn about how much Heavenly Father loves them, something I wish that I had held onto. We take our family to church every week our children love it they understand who they are (sons and daughters of God). They understand what it means to respect others and their differences they accept people for who they are because they have been taught that each one of us were created special just the way God wanted us to be.
