Hi I'm Daegan Lente

Happy to be here, wherever here may happen to be.

About Me

The things that matter most to me are my duty to God, serving others, strengthening myself in all ways, and enjoying the life around me. I'm the second oldest in a loving family of seven. I believe we are meant to grow physically, mentally, and spiritually in this life. I strive to grow in these three ways. I paint and draw; art is a skill I have been blessed with and value greatly and I enjoy teaching what I know. In the future I'll play guitar, wrestle in college, dance every day, and read books every day. I love all living things. There is always a reason to be happy, and I'll be sure to find it.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up being a member of the church, and I'm very thankful for it. I have been blessed with parents with strong testimonies in the church. I obtained a testimony for myself over time, which is why I actively follow the teachings of the Church to this day. Making sacrifices is never easy, but it is always worth it when done with faith in the Lord. We are meant to find joy in this life, and I have found no greater joy than in doing my best to live the way God wants me to live, trusting the future to tomorrow.

How I live my faith

I am currently serving a full-time mission. I have been truly blessed with having the Gospel in my life at an early age. As I have grown, I have found that the greatest thing that I can do with what I have is to use what I have to help others. I have the restored Gospel in my life and it brings me daily comfort and purpose. Sharing this blessing with others only makes sense. By putting God's will before mine, I have grown immensely in my ability to bless the lives of others. There is no doubt in my mind that serving a mission is the greatest thing I can do with my life right now. Acting upon faith brings understanding, and understanding brings love, which removes all fear. I want to live every day without fear.
