Hi I'm Danielle

I love music, traveling, and eating delicious food! I love life and laughter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a happy-go-lucky person! I love having fun, going to the movies, listening to music, dancing, playing games and especially eating yummy food. Growing up I moved around the country with my family which consisted of my mom, dad, and I. I currently live in Mesa, Arizona surrounded by great extended family. I graduated from Arizona State University with a Bachelor's in Justice Studies and a minor in Sociology. I currently work at Gilbert Municipal Court, and everyday is a new adventure there! I love traveling and seeing God's beautiful creations. I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. It truly provides me with happiness and I could not imagine my life without the gospel.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church and have been a member my entire life. The gospel has truly been a blessing in my life and has been my rock through many difficult times. I know that Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ love me and want what is best for me. When I am feeling down or when times are difficult, I know with all of my heart that I am never alone and God loves me. This simple truth has kept me going and been the foundation for my testimony. I know that God has a plan for me and if I keep the commandments and endure to the end, I will be blessed with the glorious opportunity of living with my Father in heaven, and my family for eternity. There is no greater gift than this, which is why it is so important to share the gospel. Christ attoned for our sins providing the way for every person to be able to return to Heavenly Father. Despite the mistakes we make, we can return if we truly repent and strive to be the best we can be every day. Christ knows how we feel in the most awful times and trials of our lives. This knowledge has helped me during trials in my life because I know I am not alone and someone does know how I feel. Christ knows, and my burdens are lifted as I feel the love of God in those times of despair. Through faith and the spirit the Lord guides me in my daily life, and if I listen and follow the promptings, I know I can remain on the straight and narrow and return to live with my Father in Heaven for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith everyday by trying to be an example. I try to live in a way that my Heavenly Father would be proud of me. I do live my life differently from others, but I know that by doing what is right and keeping the commandments, I can have the spirit to be my constant companion. I am currently called to be the librarian in my singles ward and love visiting teaching. My testimony of visiting teaching has grown and I truly believe that visiting teaching and home teaching can change people's lives. As a young girl, my dad was assigned to many less active members in the ward. By himself, he was unable to touch these people, so he was inspired to bring along my mom and myself. We would take cookies or treats when we went to visit, and ultimately became great friends with these good people. I follow the example of my mom who faithfully visit teaches every month, and I know it has been a blessing in both of our lives. I also live my faith by reading the scriptures. The scriptures are a powerful tool in remaining faithful and being an example to others. Reading the scriptures on a daily basis allows for the spirit to be a constant companion which will shine forth to others. I love being a member of the church and I hope by doing what is right and having the spirit with me, I am able to be an example and be able to touch the lives of others.
