Hi I'm Dan

I'm a husband, a father, a painter, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have lived in Arizona most of my life and have no plans or desire to move from the state I will always call home. I grew up in a family a of 9 kids and two loving and patient parents. I was taught to work hard be honest and help those in need. I have a love for the outdoors and would like to think of myself as a simple person. I was fortunate enough to find an amazing wife who loves me and encourages me to be better each day. We have had our good times and rough times in the ten years we have been married. We thought that not been able to have children was one of those tough times but our three beautiful adopted children have made me realize just how blessed we are.

Why I am a Mormon

Raised in the church or not, to remain in the church you become a convert at some point. I was taught Christian values by word but probably more through example. I was taught the difference between right and wrong and then was allowed to make choices for myself. I served a mission in Dublin Ireland and there grew in a knowledge of the gospel and scriptures. What was once the words of my parents became so real to me and my eyes were opened. I have been blessed with opportunities and challenges that helped me to know my Saviour. I have had my moments of "is this right" but they are always followed by the calming reassurance of the Holy Ghost that it is. I cannot deny that that He is there. Too many times I have felt His love to say otherwise.

How I live my faith

The gospel of Jesus Christ is simple. Do those things that He would do. Love others, help others, be kind and patient. Do I always do those things- not always. But I try and I teach my kids the same. I love my wife and children. I love my Savior and want to do His will. I am not ashamed, and cannot deny that it's true.
