Hi I'm Dan

I am a husband, a father, and a Mormon. I'm active in my community; I want to make it a better place for my familiy, and yours.

About Me

I am currently an administrator at a small community college. When I'm not at work, I spend most of my time with my family. I have four children, three boys and one girl. We enjoy a variety of activities, including swimming, camping, television, and bowling. My personal hobbies include carpentry, hunting, hiking, reading, and television. Of these, hunting is my favorite. I look forward to the fall specifically because I get to spend time, not just in nature, but as a part of it. There's nothing quite like spending time outdoors in nature, enjoying God's creations and the beauty of the Earth.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for one reason: it's true. I grew up in the church. As a teenager, I felt pressure to serve a mission. I knew that there was no way I could spend two years of my life testifying to the truth of the gospel unless I really did know, for myself, that it was true. I needed to know that Joeseph Smith was a prophet. I needed to know, for myself, that the Book of Mormon was scripture. Most importantly, I needed to know, for myself, that Jesus Christ lived and died for me. I spent time reading the scriptures and praying to know if it was all true. In ways I can't describe in this format, I received personal revelation that I can never deny. It's true. Jesus Christ lived, and this is his church!

How I live my faith

I live my faith first by participating in the church. I attend meetings and participate in discussions. I fullfill a calling as the Ward Clerk. I home teach families in the ward, bringing the gospel to their homes. I also live my faith by acting on my beliefs to better myself. I strive to not just study the gospel, but live the gospel and follow Christ's example. I frequently fall short and recognize my flaws, but use these failings to try harder and work toward making my thoughts and actions more christlike.
