Hi I'm Danielle

I live in Colorado. I love to learn about new topics. Having a family is important to me. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm married with three children and love to spend time with my family. We enjoy being outdoors and traveling. Activities that we do as a family include skiing, swimming, hiking, fishing, cooking, reading and just having fun! My educational background is in interior design. Having our home serve as a comfortable and safe place is important to me. Design can be a creative outlet that brings inspiration and peace. My mother taught me how to sew, can fruits and grow a garden. I enjoy using these skills to not only provide for my family, but to also share them with others. Does it sound like my life is perfect? Let me tell you that we struggle with many of the same issues that all families struggle with, but the gospel is our guiding force that helps us to get through them.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church. I was raised with a religious background, so many of the aspects of attending a church were not new to me. I was baptized when I was in college after hearing about the gospel through a friend from high school. I had already read the Book of Mormon and was ready to begin living the gospel standards. One of the main reasons I am a Mormon is that the gospel is simple and challenging at the same time. It explains to me all of the questions I had about the purpose of this life and how I should live it. Another reason is that the gospel touches all aspects of my life and helps me to stay on the path to returning to Heavenly Father.

How I live my faith

I think that the best way to live my faith is through example. My children and friends watch what I do, so I try to show them what I belive through my actions. I participate in my community by voluteering for my daughter's Girl Scout troop and helping out at their school. I think that by strengthening youth, no matter what background they come from, is essential. Young people need positve role models!
