Hi I'm Dan

I live in the Pacific Northwest. We have four children, and I love taking them hiking. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I live in the Pacific Northwest, enjoy playing the piano when I get a chance, hiking, occasionally doing land surveying, helping my children with their math, and supporting my wife as she does home improvement projects. In the future, my dream is to read many more books, especially about history, about stories of people who did hard, but worthwhile things, go hiking more with my wife and children, follow my wife as she follows our children, and find time and ways to contribute more to my community. I have some really great neighbors.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because my parents joined the church in their 20's and raised my brothers and me that way. Sure glad they did. I'm a Mormon because of the many resources given me through membership. Work, play, associations, counsel. I'm a Mormon because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is here. This is how I hope to follow him.

How I live my faith

Yesterday my son and I went to an Eagle Scout service project with our church group and others not Mormon clearing a lakefront property, making room for handicap access. I help organize weekly meetings for church. This involves phone calls and meetings with men and women from our congregation. I often have opportunities to teach small classes for youth. I make Sundays special by attending church, visiting people, resting, spending time with family. I aim to be a good husband and father. A happy home is our goal, and one way we work toward that is gathering our children in the evenings for family prayer, scripture study where each may participate. I've always felt God cares about me. Personal prayer and scripture study is important for me and helps to keep a decent attitude as I work to please him.
