Hi I'm Danai

I'm a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I grew up in Utah.

About Me

I am a college student and the oldest of 7 children. I love spending time with my family and going camping, horseback riding, boating, hiking and anything else that we can do together. I'm a piano performance major and love the power and spirit that music can bring. Along with music, science and human anatomy fascinate me and I am working towards going to PA school after I graduate. I also have 3 wonderful roommates who are practically sisters to me and we have way too much fun together at school.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in a home where my parents were LDS and of course my whole family went to church every Sunday. When I left for college, I went to church on Sunday because that's what we did on Sunday and that's what all of my friends did. However, as I've made the choice to continue to go to church every Sunday, I've come to realize that this church is the only way to be truly happy in this life. I know that my life would be meaningless without my family and in this church, the family is the most important unit. I know that there is a way for families to be together forever and that God loves us all and He hasn't left us alone in the world. Just like in ancient times, He has prophets that He communicates directly with to help us through this mortal existence. This church gives our lives meaning and purpose, which is really what every human being is searching for.

How I live my faith

Right now I am serving a full time mission to the people in the Philippines. I'm learning and studying the Tagalog language to be able to share the gospel of Christ with the Filipino people.
