Hi I'm Danny

I am a podiatric medical student in Arizona. I have a beautiful wife and baby boy. I love sports, especially basketball.

About Me

My name is Danny. I am 30 years old and am a first year podiatric medical student.. I have been married to my beautiful wife for almost 5 years. About 2 months ago our first child, was born. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Urban Planning. To get through college I worked various jobs, such as a math teacher, swimming pool manager, and airport shuttle driver. I served an LDS mission in Russia. I love basketball and football.

Why I am a Mormon

Being a Mormon has brought me happiness that is hard to express with words. By living my faith, I find the Lord's help in everything I do, whether it be help with my school work and help at home. There is an unspoken joy that comes from know our purpose in life, and even greater joy that comes from living it. I learned that my marriage and my family can be together forever through marriage in the temple. I know that the relationships with my family, which is the most important to me and brings me the most happiness, will continue after we leave this world. This is all possible because of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. In our day, God reveals through prophets about His Son and the Atonement. I know Jesus Christ is my Savior. I know his selfless sacrifice will allow us to be with the ones we love for eternity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be a good role model for the youth of this generation. I seek opportunities where I can be in such a position. I have been a teacher, a coach of multiple sports, and have been their boss. I remember being a teenager and wanted to emulate those adults I looked up to. I hope they look up to me and see somebody who can be fun and be happy without needing to give in to peer pressure that can compromise one's values. I hope this attitude will help me be a good parent as my son grows. You can be a person with honesty and integrity in these times. You can be happy. You can have fun. You can be that good person you tell yourself you want to be.
