Hi I'm Daniel

I'm a Mormon. I love sports and the outdoors. And I love to go duck hunting.

About Me

I am married and have 3 beautiful daughters. In my spare time when I'm not at work or chasing around my children, I love to watch/play sports mainly football and baseball or playing disc golf. I also love to go camping with the family, or going hunting with my friends.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. But not all of my family were members of the Church. My father was raised in the Catholic faith but did not practice his faith. He did not mind that my mother took us to church but did not want us (my two brothers and I) to join the church. Eventually we all were baptized, growing up in the Church was not always easy, without the support of my father. But I knew that the decision I made to do so was the correct decision for me. When I was 20 I decided to go on a mission, and again was faced with opposition from my father, but while I was on my mission my decision was validated by seeing the joy and happiness that was brought to families through my choice to serve the Lord. I know that the church is God's true and living church on the earth today, and that we have been blessed to have a living prophet who leads and guides us today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and can help change our lives if we will take the time to read it and then pray of its truthfulness. I know that the prophet Joseph Smith was sent to restore Gods church on the earth today.

How I live my faith

Every Sunday my wife and I take our children to church, so that they can learn of Gods love for them and to develop testimonies of their own. And when we are not at church we strive to teach them the gospel in our home. We teach them that going to church on Sunday is not the only thing that we do as members of the church but that we live the teachings of the gospel every day. We have found that the best way to teach them is through our example and by living the gospel ourselves. We love to serve others. We try to do some kind of service all the time.
