Hi I'm Whitney Daynes

I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I lived in Southern California until i was 17, then I moved to Hawaii to attend school at BUY-Hawaii. I graduated with a degree in art. I was married to an awesome man, and now we live in Arizona with our 2 beautiful children. I love to paint, play soccer, run, surf, hang out with family and friends, and i love the sunshine!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I believe in everything that this religion stands for and teaches. My membership in this church means so much to me and provides so much comfort and peace in my life. I have a testimony of the truthfulness of this church, and I feel so lucky to be a part of it. It gives my life purpose, happiness and joy. I have a strong testimony of the realness of the Savior Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father in my life. I know for a fact that they are there and that they are involved in everything that goes on in my life. I love them for caring so much and for being there to guide me and lift me through all trials that come to me. I am grateful that they have made me want to do good and to be a good person in all that I do. I love them and I love this church so much. It is the foundation of my life!

How I live my faith

I participate in my ward by helping the young women learn skills and standards to help them throughout their lives. The skills and standards help them to serve others, be self sufficient, and to be good examples to other youth around them. In my community I really make an effort to be friendly and courteous to others, and most of the time it comes as a surprise to them. If I hold the door open for someone of smile at someone they seem so grateful and it seems to make their day, which in turn makes my day. I just want everyone to know that I am happy, and I want them to want to know why I am happy. The reason is because I am a Mormon.
