Hi I'm Dane

I love to have outdoor adventures. Building is work but also my favorite hobby. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love hiking with my dog even in the cold when we go snowshoeing. One of my hobbies is weight lifting and have everyday for the past five years. I enjoy Ju-jitsu with my younger brother even though he is way more skilled. I'm up for a challenge and I like to do things that the average person might never do! I could be a little bit of an adrenaline junkie. I grew up learning carpentry from my Dad. I have grown to love building throughout the years, but I love most learning from my Dad, not just carpentry, but the valuable life lessons he has shown me. I am truly thankful that my Parents have set the example of following Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon not because I grew up in the church, not because my parents were, not because I was forced into it but because I was invited to read the Book Of Mormon and ask God if it was true. I put it off for a long time but life seemed to keep throwing out challenges for me and I realized that I had no knowledge of its truth. Well, I did it, I picked up the Book of Mormon and read maybe just a few chapters but before I read I Prayed and asked God to let me know if what I was reading was true. Sure enough I felt the most amazing feeling come over me, at that moment I knew God was real. I knew that he was telling me through the Holy Ghost that the book I held in my hands was of him and his son Jesus Christ. So I continued to read and pray and each time I have done that, God has time and time again reassured me that it is true. Something I have learned about Heavenly Father is that he will always let me know the answer to that question, no matter how many times I ask it. I know that because I can receive specific answers from God I can ask him any question I have, Because I know the Book Of Mormon is true I have also come to know that Joseph Smith Jr. truly did translate it through the power of God. I have also come to know that the Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints is the Church that Jesus Christ Organized During his life here on earth and has been restored to the earth.

How I live my faith

The way I try to live my faith is by serving others, I try my best to follow the example of Jesus Christ and because he paid the price for my sins with his precious blood He has given me the opportunity to repent and to improve myself. Christ is the Driving force to becoming a better person. I have had many great leaders and teachers throughout my time as a member of the Church and they have shown me a great example of what I can achieve through living the Gospel. Currently I'm serving a mission in the Jungles of Alabama and I love every minute of it! My Family is extremely Important to me so I try to live the life that will make it possible to return to live with them, my Heavenly Father and Savior Jesus Christ.
