Hi I'm Daniel

I grew up in a small town in central Utah. I love basketball. I'm a missionary. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I absolutely love sports. I love all of them, but mostly basketball, football, golf, and baseball. I want to go into sports broadcasting. I would love to work for ESPN. I am a missionary right now in the Florida Tampa Mission and it's the best thing I've ever done in my life! I love to camp, hike, and hang out with friends. After my mission, I plan on returning to college and attempting to play college basketball. I love my family!

Why I am a Mormon

Growing up, I always knew the Church was true, but I didn't really act on it. I always did what I was asked to do, but it wasn't until I went to college that I gained my testimony that this is Christ's church. Finally, after I had received my mission call, I knew I had to find out if that's what I was supposed to do. So one night I prayed and asked my Heavenly Father if a mission was His plan for me. I received an overwhelming feeling that I had to go on a mission and that my Father in Heaven loved me. I'll never forget how I felt that day. I strive my best to follow the gospel of Jesus Christ because it brings so much happiness to my life. Without it, I wouldn't have the sure knowledge that I can be with my family forever. I wouldn't know that Jesus Christ really did suffer & die for our sins. I love the gospel!

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to do my best in everything I do. I read my scriptures everyday. I pray at least twice a day. Before my mission, in my Singles Ward, I was a leader of our home evening group. Basically, my partner and I organized & planned activities for Monday nights. We had a group of I think 10 or 12. We tried our best to get everyone involved and have a spiritual aspect to each activity. It wasn't always an epic experience, but we did our best.

What will the Mormon missionaries talk about when they visit my home?

Missionaries will talk about the Restoration of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and about the plan of salvation, which is God's great plan of happiness for His children, and enables us all to return to His presence. It's a message of happiness and joy, and it will bless your life if you sincerely seek to understand and apply the message the missionaries have. Show more Show less
