Hi I'm Dan

I'm a commercial construction field engineer turned student, I love spending time with my family, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a commercial construction project/field engineer turned student. I am a husband and a father. My greatest joy in life is spending time with my family. I enjoy construction work and being outside. I am studying to enter the dental/medical field. I grew up in California and love the beach, soccer, traveling, family outings and everything Italian. I lived in Italy(church mission) and speak Italian, though not as often as I would like to. I'm grateful that my parents raised me in the church and for helping mold me into who I am today. I am humbled by the talents and abilities of my beautiful wife and can't get enough of our beautiul children. I look forward to every new day that awiats me and my family and the opportuinties to learn and grow from our experieces together.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a mormon because I believe that we are the only church on earth that has the full truth. I believe that Jesus Christ suffered for my sins and that through the atonement I can return to live with my father in heaven. When I feel like there is no hope or no way to overcome my problems, I pray to my father in heaven and can feel he knows what I am dealing with. I know that we are given challenges in life to be able to strenghthen not only ourselves but others around us. I am not able to deny the happiness that being a member of this church has brought into my life.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to follow the example set by my savior Jesus Christ. There are many times when I fall short but it doesn't mean that I give up. I try to lead my family by example and teach them about things that really matter in this life. I try to treat others how I want to be treated. When I get knocked down I get right back up and keep pushing forward. I pray continually to my father in heaven to be with me and to have his spirit help me stay on the right path to eternal life. I enjoy working with the full time missionaries and supporting them in their efforts to share the gospel.
