Hi I'm Daniel

I'm a cancer survivor and a Master's student studying Mechanical Engineering. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised a Mormon in Utah. As a teenager I was diagnosed with bone cancer, which helped me to know God's love firsthand and to realize that each day is a gift. I served a two year LDS mission in Ft. Worth Texas, where I fell in love with barbeque. After returning home, I attended college at Brigham Young University, where I met my sweetheart at church. We had the blessing of being married in the Bountiful Utah Temple two years ago, which has been the best decision I have ever made. I currently live in Georgia working towards earning a Master's degree in mechanical engineering.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because the power of Christ has come into my life as I have followed the teachings of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. With each covenant I have made with God, including baptism and the eternal marriage covenant, I have found greater strength to be a better person. There are many weaknesses and sins that I never could have overcome on my own that He has helped me to overcome, because the covenants and teachings of the church have helped me understand how to to receive His enabling grace. There is a special strength in my marriage because we were sealed in the temple that helps us be more unified and more Christlike to each other. The church has also given us many practical tools which have served to strengthen our marriage, such as having a gospel centered, family strengthening, family home evening together each Monday night. The bottom line is that I keep going to church because it helps me to become a better person.

How I live my faith

I primarily live my faith by trying to strengthen my wife and marriage with everything I do. As a "home teacher" in the church, I make monthly visits to families in the local area, watching over and looking for ways to strengthen them. Teaching adult men is my current church position.
