Hi I'm Daniel

I grew up in Eastern Oregon. My family are farmers. I love playing sports, going hunting, and serving others. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have grown up on a farm and love being out in the country. On my farm we grow corn, sugar beets, wheat, onions and we have a few cows. I love driving tractors and riding my dirt bike. I am a very family oriented person. I love doing things with my family and especially taking camping trips up by the lake close to my house. I also love spending time with my friends where we play sports or go fishing, hunting, swimming or ride dirt bikes "anything we can do that sounds like a good time". I am going to college at BYU-Idaho when i get home from my mission. There i will be studying Exercise Physiology and my goal is to become either a Physical Therapist or a Personal Trainer. I love sports such as college football and college basketball. I have grown up playing football, basketball, and lifting weights so i want a career that i can still be around those things.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because of the PEACE, LOVE, JOY that i have from living a life centered on Jesus Christ and his gospel. In this church we are taught the things our Savior shared while he was on the earth. We are taught from a very young age how to come closer to Jesus Christ by living his teachings and doing the tasks he has asked us to. The Gospel of Jesus Christ consist of having faith, repenting, being baptized by someone holding the proper Priesthood Aurthority from God, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the End. Those five core beliefs have changed my life and have made me the person that God wants me to be. Its funny as i keep all of the commandments of the Lord including the "Word of Wisdom" and the "Law of Chastity" and the Ten Commandments i feel more free. A lot of people think that us Mormons have so many rules but i pose these questions to you? How healthy, happy, and spiritual do Mormons feel because of the word of wisdom? How clean and pure do Mormons feel because of the law of Chastity. How much heartache, pain, and suffering do we not have to suffer because we refrain from drugs, addictive substances, and sexual intimacies before marriage. Satan is trying he hardest to tear down families or the righteous people of this world, and because we have these "rules" as people say we have a better chance of not falling into temptation which leads to sadness.

How I live my faith

Right now i live my faith by being on a full time mission for our church. I am helping my brothers and sisters of this world come closer to Jesus Christ and God by helping them recieve the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and his atonement, repenting, being baptized, recieving the Gift of the Holy Ghost, and Enduring to the end. I do this so they might know for themselfs that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is the Lords true church on the earth today. Also that they might recieve the same peace, happiness, and joy in this life that i have from being a member of this church.
