Hi I'm Danny Johnson

I was born and raised in Utah. I love working as a physical therapist! And, I'm eternally grateful that I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love being active!! I believe that having a healthy body is vital to having a healthy lifestyle and living a productive life! I love getting out and experiencing nature...fly-fishing, hiking, picnics, sports. I grew up playing basketball and baseball, but since have added volleyball and tennis to my favorites. I love helping out and serving those in need (because we all end up in that spot at one point or another). I love spending time with family and friends to get a break from the busyness of life. I love talking about life and how it's challenges can make us stronger. I recently graduated as a physical therapist and look forward to helping people the rest of my life!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon for many reasons...First, and foremost, because I have a strong testimony (or declaration) that Jesus is the Christ. We need Him every day of our lives in order to learn and grow properly. I know He was resurrected and that He lives and loves us dearly. I have felt His love often, though it is more poignant through the more trying times of my life. Christ is always supporting me and helping me to be my best. I know He loves all of us just the same, and that He has called prophets in our day just as He did during his mortal life. Through them, in our day, Christ has restored the church He established long ago... Second, I feel the Holy Spirit touch my heart regularly regarding the truthfulness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know it is true, and that it is found in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Whenever I read the Bible and Book of Mormon I feel the Spirit of the Lord witness to me of their reality, importance, and connectedness. I know they are both of God, and can teach us what God wants us to know (if we will listen). I am so grateful for these books and the clarity they bring to my life.

How I live my faith

I attend a ward (congregation) that is for 18-30 year old young single adults. I have the privilege of serving in the Fellowshipping Committee. I get to make sure that all feel welcome and comfortable at our meetings and activities. Our committee strives to make sure no one sits alone at church and that everyone has a friend. I also have been asked to volunteer on a committee for a large-scale service project this year. We are hoping to have a few hundred volunteers (maybe 1,000 if we're lucky!). We are still planning what kind of service we would like to provide and who the recipients of this service will be. I also have the opportunity of visiting with five or six people in my ward each month. We talk about life and how things are working out (or not) at the present time. We discuss how we can make improvements and how we can help each other--it's nice to be at church with people my age so we can relate better regarding current life situations. I also live my faith by reading the scriptures each day. I pray daily for guidance from God to help me learn and grow. Thus, I can be His hands and help those in need whom I encounter. I seek to serve those I meet and bring a smile to their face(s). Every day I think of how I can be more like our Savior, Jesus Christ, and thus help people find the joy I have found through believing and following Him.
