Hi I'm Dan Dalton

I've lived in Colorado for over 25 years. I moved here to do R&D work as a computer engineer, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah where I and most of my friends were members of the LDS church. At age 19 I volunteered to serve a full-time mission for the church. I was sent to the Japan Sendai Mission where I spent 2 years learning to speak Japanese, making many friends, and teaching people about the gospel of Jesus Christ. I was extremely saddened by the devastating tsunami disaster that occurred there in March of 2011. Upon my return I earned a B.S. degree at BYU in electrical engineering and moved to Colorado where I have worked for over 25 years. I love it here.

Why I am a Mormon

I have always been very grateful that I was raised a Mormon. The doctrine of Jesus Christ gives me great hope for the future and motivates me to always strive to live my life according to His teachings. I believe that much of the sorrow and suffering in the world could be eliminated if more people knew and followed the moral and health standards taught by my faith. The doctrines of the Church also answer the significant and eternal questions that nearly everyone longs to understand. I find great peace and confidence in my faith.

How I live my faith

My wife and I take our family to church every Sunday where we participate in gospel classes and lessons. Every adult in the church who has a desire to serve has a calling or church job. I've been a missionary, a leader of young men, a cubmaster, a teacher, a secretary, and a bishop to name a few. I've enjoyed every calling and have learned a great deal from each one. I try to be a good example to my family, and they are pretty patient with me.
