Hi I'm Dakota

I love being happy, I love sharing that happiness, I love Jesus Christ, and I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Tokyo Japan! I attended college at Brigham Young University. I am 20 years old. I have a younger brother who is 17, and an older sister who is 31. She has four kids now, so I have been an uncle for almost 12 years. I live in a very small town in the mountains of Idaho, and I love it so much! I now live in downtown Tokyo, which is a little different, but it's so great living here!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is such a fulfilling and joyous way to live life! I'm so, so, soooo grateful for all of my many blessings in life, and I know that they come from following a loving Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ. This church gives us so much happiness and so much joy. I am a Mormon because through helping others and putting others before me, I can also feel an overwhelming happiness. There is a happiness that is unexplainable found in following the teachings of Jesus Christ, and I'm so happy that I have found His church!

How I live my faith

Before I came to Japan, I feel like I lived my faith by just going through the motions and doing what I was supposed to do, but not with any reason or purpose. Now I know my identity, and I know that by living the way God wants me to live will help other people as well as myself. I live my faith by sharing it. I know that God gives us so many things and that we need to show gratitude always to Him, so I follow what He says.
