Hi I'm Daniel Scott Hansen (R)

NFL enthusiast. Pragmatist. Patriot. Marine. Astronomy enthusiast. Political. Religious and i'm a mormon.

About Me

I am soon to be a father of a daughter! I am so eager to begin this part of my life with my wonderful wife. I am very political and want to get a PhD (I was BORN to RESEARCH. Booyah). I have a B.S. in political science and have a certificate of study in International, Arabic, and Islamic studies. I have a voracious appetite for knowledge. I love science although I regret not having studied it more officially in college. I LOVE astronomy. Absolutely love it, and reading about Einstein and Niels Bohr. Fascinating. I am a devoted Packers fan. I am very proud to serve my country in the USMC and plan to serve my country one way or another throughout my life. I love life (which is easy when you have such sweet and lovely family to come home to!)

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because the Lord has testified to me through the Holy Spirit that this church is the only church on this earth which can so completely bring us to pure happiness. It is that simple. Even feeling that church doctrine is the most logical and consistent doctrine of any religions (which I do), this alone is not sufficient to truly bring us to a deep knowledge of the truth of God and His son Jesus Christ. As our missionaries tell those they teach, if they read the Book of Mormon and pray about it, the Lord will bear witness to them of its truth. This the Lord has done for me. I feel the spirit literally every time I go to church and every time I read the scriptures. The sweet harmony of the spirit is something that you cannot deny when you feel it.

How I live my faith

I had the great privilege of serving in my last ward by meeting with new move-ins and others in our area. I absolutely enjoyed this aspect of my calling. I also helped coordinate hometeaching assignments and try to improve the families who were visited. The more relationships we develop, the stronger we all are. It can be hard at first, but once we are building upon those connections life is so much richer and we are edified by our service.
