Hi I'm Dane

I'm a brother and a son. I'm a CrossFitter. I'm a Georgia Peach! I'm a Mormon!

About Me

I enjoy doing Martial Arts, particularly Jiu-jitsu, and I enjoy doing CrossFit. I am planning on becoming a Chiropractor when I finish school.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon all of my life, but I never truly appreciated or understood what that meant or what this Gospel offered until a few years ago. It didn't make sense all at once, and not everything makes complete sense to me yet, but as I have studied and worked to try to understand things about the Lord's church, I have come to know of the truth that it holds and I have come to love having the opportunity to be a part of it. If you desire to know about the church, then put forth the effort that is required of you. Do everything. Read, pray, ponder. Even fast, because when you do these things with an earnestness in your heart and sacrifice your time and energy to learn of Him, the Lord is bound-- and He will show you the truth.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith through example. I believe that that is the best teaching and testament of my faith that I can give to others.

Why are only some Mormons allowed into temples? Is there something secret going on in Mormon Temples? What goes on in Mormon Temples?

There are no secrets kept in the temple. All of the information on the ordinances performed and why is available to anyone who truly desires to know of them and who take the steps required to enter the temple to learn of them, but these things are not discussed outside of the temple due to the sacredness and reverence which is given them. There is first an amount of understanding that is needed in order to see and perform the ordinances in the context in which they were originally given. You can't start learning Calculus if you do not first know how to multiply, divide, add and subtract. So it is with knowledge as great and as sacred as this is. Show more Show less
