Hi I'm Daniel Hale

Im From Minnesota, Serving a Mission In Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Love my family, friends, traveling and sports, and ya im a Mormon!

About Me

i have been in the church my whole life, and have done a lot of moving around living in 6 states, i am always eager to share the gospel with anyone who is willing to listen. i love this church and would not be the same person without it.

Why I am a Mormon

i remember growing up in the church and for the most part just being in the church cause thats what my family did but then i remember around the age of 12 i started to really care about what i believed in and started to really study for myself, and i remember when i was 14 i went to my first church camp youth conference and felt the spirit so strong and i really knew that it was true and i felt so unbelievable, but i didnt want it to end there, i continued to pray about the church and because i had to know if it was true and i continued to get the feeling in my heart that told me this gospel was true, the holy ghost tells me of it every time i need a reminder. after having those feelings i have no doubt in my mind that this church is true. i started being converted because i wanted to be converted, but then i realized it goes much more beyond that, i am a member of this church because i NEED to be! there is no other way that i can draw closer to Christ, there is no other way that will help me return to live with my father in heaven other then by following the Prophet that is called of God. this gospel isnt just a luxury to me but its a necessity, i have found that i cant be truly really happy without the blessing that come from this gospel, its the bread of life, that if i dont partake of i will be lost. its the light house that guides me safely to shore in a world that wants me to crash and sink. Jesus Christ is my savior, and i know that i am a son of my father in Heaven!

How I live my faith

i live my faith by making it who i am, in school i have always been different because of the fact that i am a member of the church, in high school everyone knew that i was a member of this church, everyone knew i had early morning seminary and everyone knew that i wouldnt take part in things that were not moral. in school i wasnt afraid to pull out my Book of Mormon in class if i had a few minutes to spare, or to give some out to friends i knew where going through a hard time or that just might be wondering what its about. i wanted people to look at me and see that i wasnt one to just say what i believed but that i lived it too. this wasnt always easy and like everyone i slipped up a few times but i found that the more i studied the gospel and put what i studied in my life and work on those Christ like attributes it talks about in the scriptures, i found it easier to study the gospel, i found it easier to stand as a witness in a place where not many members of my faith lived. i once new someone that used to say "i dont want you to be a candle on a hill like the scriptures say, but i want you to be much more, i want you to be a torch or maybe even something bigger" and i have always tried to live up to that, so people can see me and know what The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints is all about! I love this gospel so much!
