Hi I'm Daniel Swainston

I'm a follower of Christ & I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the third of five kids. I'm a big guy. I enjoy athletics, hunting, rock climbing and sharing the Gospel. I love music of all genres. I'm a student at Utah State University.

Why I am a Mormon

Because the Atonement of Jesus Christ Allows me to change and progress. "Change is constant, progress is optional." - Grandpa Probst

How I live my faith

I just served the last two years as a missionary for the Lord, in central Texas. Everyday is something new, I try actively to discuss the teachings of Christ with those not of my Faith. Prayer is a daily nourishment I need,relying on my Heavenly Father has given me so much more streangth and guidance in my day to day life. I attend an Institute of Religion here is Bakersfield each week to expound my knowledge of the scriptures. I'll serve where I can and as often as possible.

Mormons believe Jesus Christ is their Savior. Why do we need a Savior?

Daniel Swainston
The feelings of guilt and shame that are brought from poor decisions and sin, can only be removed by one perfect enough to pay the price for those sins. Jesus Christ is the only one that could have done this. Without Him, we would never return to the presence of our Heavenly Father. I'm gratefull to have the knowledge that Jesus Christ is my Redeemer. That he lives. That he loves me, and knows me and the experiences I go through. I am grateful for the knowledge of repentance, and the opportunity to repent. I know that he is the only way back , and the only way to have true joy. You can be forgiven of your sins through the Atonement of Jesus Christ by the process of repentance. Because Heavenly Father knew we would sometimes make wrong choices, He provided a way for us to be forgiven of our sins (John 3:16). He provided a Savior, Jesus Christ, who suffered for our sins in the Garden of Gethsemane and on the cross so that when we sincerely repent, we can be forgiven (Book of Mormon, Mosiah 4:6).
