Hi I'm Dan

I'm a husband, father of four, volunteer and business owner. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm a husband, a father, a business owner and executive and a church volunteer. I struggle to try to balance all these competing roles in my life, yet I value all these as important elements of who I am. My marriage has been a central element of my happiness, my children each mean so much to me, and I'm grateful and happy to strive to provide for their needs and wants. I find fulfillment in helping companies improve and grow, and I find deep satisfaction in striving to help others through volunteer service. I am thankful for the rich, full life I am privileged to live.

Why I am a Mormon

Fundamentally I am a Mormon because I have found such profound joy and peace by following the teachings of the gospel of Jesus Christ. I have found no other source of lasting peace and happiness outside of the gospel, which encompasses essentially everything and everyone I care most about. I reach closer to the man I want to become when I am following the precepts of Christ's gospel. And I can feel those blessings flowing into my marriage and into the lives of my children as we strive to follow the Savior as a family.

How I live my faith

Living my faith starts with me, with private victories (and sometimes defeats) as I strive to live my personal life in a way that is consistent with the teachings of the Savior and His church. It flows into my marriage and is reflected in the kind of husband I strive to be--gentle, caring, kind, listening. From there it extends to my daily interactions with each of my children. I find that these three areas are where the rubber meets the road in the most direct way. From there I strive to be a good and fair boss and colleague at work and a kind and helpful volunteer at church. I fail many times each day, yet the gospel is about continuing to strive, to pick up where we left off and to reach higher through the grace and mercy and help of the Savior and our Heavenly Father.
