Hi I'm dan

I'm a Mormon. i grew up in cohoes new york im a us army vet and married to a wounderful woman named heidi have two great kids

About Me

im a corrections officer for twenty years, i converted from catholic religion im married and sealed to a great lady called heidi, have two children and four older children from a previous marrige. heidi and i converted in 1988 after we were married in a civil ceremony one year later we were sealed in the washington dc temple. we would not probably be still together if we hadnt joined the church. i have no doubt of that.r

Why I am a Mormon

i joined the church because i was looking for something else more than the catholic religion was giving to me. i believed there was a god i believed in jeasus christ and that he was my savior, but i didnt know him and didnt understand what the reason was for us being here in this life. the lds church tought me the answers to these questions and many more. over the years my wife and i have learned answers to many other questions. i have gained a testimony of the church and the restored gospel of jesus. and how it applies to my life. i dont believe we would have our children if we had not had our marrige sealed in the lords holy temple for all time and eternity. our chanches of having any children at all was no more than 20 percent, but the loed blessed us with two beautiful children.

How I live my faith

how i live my faith is to live the gospel on a daily basis. to try to be a good example to all my children and my family i am the only church member of any of my immediate family but i hope my being an example will eventually rub off. i go to sacrement services every sunday and try to keep the sabbath day holy. i am the priests quorm advisor which means i have alot to do with the youth of our ward. i perform as much service as possible in fact my son and i are helping to move a piano this weekend. i enjoy doing church activities as much as possible as the spirit of the lord is always felt strongly during these times.
