Hi I'm Dane

I'm from Gilbert, AZ. I love sports and the outdoors! Music rocks! And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am currently serving a mission in Virginia. Being active in sports and the outdoors is one of my favorite pass-times. I enjoy basketball, volleyball, football, long boarding, camping, riding horses, fishing, skiing, hiking - the list goes on and on! Music is my life. I love playing the guitar, piano and singing. It brings me great comfort and joy to listen to music. I love life! I love it because I know why I'm here. This life is a speck in comparison to our life with our Father before and our life beyond this one. I know that this life is the time to prepare to meet God! I know that he sent his Son to help us accomplish that. I know that each of us are children of God and it is that fact which guarantees us the wonderful opportunity of maturing and becoming more like our Father. That is why I love life. I am learning how to be like Him! And it is a wonderful journey! Because of my perspective through the lens of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I know that there is happiness waiting, eternal happiness, if I am faithful to Him. I love my Savior. He is my lifeline - the only true way to life eternal! This I know with all my heart!

Why I am a Mormon

My conversion to God and Jesus Christ is like a sunrise. Before the sun is visible, light poors out over the horizon and things are visible in the growing light. Something bright is on the other side of the hills. Finally, the sun peeks through and there is no doubt that what you see is the sun, even though it is not completely visible. For me in my life, it has been a slow and steady process to know what I know. But now I feel the warmth of the Son and the brightness of His light - I know He lives! This is His church. It has been restored in it's fullness! I know by the power of the Holy Ghost that these things are true. I am a disciple of Christ. I am a child of God!

How I live my faith

Serving currently as a missionary, I am devoting two years of my life to the Lord! Sharing the Gospel with others is how I live my faith. This Gospel has blessed my life so much I would be ungrateful if I did not share it with the world! That is Heavenly Father's plan - for all of His children to make their way back to Him! I am proud to be apart of his wonderful plan for each of us.

What do Mormons believe about “eternal life?”

Because Jesus Christ overcame death and was resurrected, each person who lives and dies on this earth will one day be forever united, body and spirit. This is immortality. It is a free gift from our Father through his Son. Eternal life, however, is immortality in the presence of our Heavenly Father. It is living His life-style, it is feeling of His love, it is knowing His happiness. There is nothing greater and all things point to it - the ultimate goal! Show more Show less
