Hi I'm Daniel

I grew up in the Netherlands. I moved to the North of England. Now I live in the United States. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I lived in the Netherlands for 8 years, then I moved to the North East of England where I lived for 6 years. I then moved to Colorado and also went to College in Utah for about a year and a half. I am currently serving as a missionary in Oakland and San Francisco in California. I will be serving for 2 years and will be back near the year 2016!

Why I am a Mormon

I remember that in Holland there was a temple open house. At that age I used to fight a lot with my siblings. Inside the temple I felt peace inside. I now know that feeling to be the spirit of God now. I am now able to have a constant companionship with the Holy Ghost, which is the spirit of God. I have lived in three different countries and made many friends I can really see the difference between those friends who have high standards and those with lower standards. Having good friends has greatly affected me to keep the commandments. Your friends are very important, especially when you have doubts and questions. I am just thankful that I have guidelines and "rules" to follow. Because I have the commandments to hold on to, I have freedom. I know that God Lives. I know this because I know that my prayers have been answered by Him, on multiple occasions. I know that through Him we can be cleansed and be made pure again. I know the Book of Mormon to be true and I know that we have a living prophet here today.

How I live my faith

Having been a member all my life and having gained a testimony, I live my faith each day. I pray each day. I strive to read my scriptures daily which can be difficult when we don't prioritize our tasks each day. I go to church where I am able to feel peace and love. I desire and try my best to keep the commandments. I want to keep the commandments because I know blessings are given to us freely when you do what's right. I try to follow Jesus by developing Christlike attributes.
