Hi I'm Jason Danciak

I'm From New Jersey and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in a small town of in New Jersey. I have attended college for criminal justice . I am currently working for a Solar Panel Company here in New Jersey and preparing to serve a mission. I am the only member in my family but they still are an incredible family. They have helped me grow so much I love doing things that make my adrenaline pump. I love having a good time and making people laugh. I am a huge Football fan. I love the New York Giants.

Why I am a Mormon

I came about the church after my best friend left for his mission. I really was angry with him because I did not understand why he was serving a mission. I was still angry with heavenly father because of the trial he put my through several years before. I had an eating disorder and suffered from depression. I was angry with heavenly father because I did not understand if he was all merciful like I was taught in my catholic upbringing, then why would he allow me to go through this? It wasn’t until after my friend left on his mission that I investigated the church. His girlfriend at the time kept hounding me to meet with the missionaries; I did not want to offend anyone because I did not believe in Jesus Christ or God at all because of my past. Finally I gave into meeting with the missionaries. After meeting with the missionaries for a month and a half I was baptized. Through meeting with the missionaries I was able to quit smoking. I used to smoke almost 2 packs a day and it was through my faith in Jesus Christ and with Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ help to give me the strength to quit smoking. The Plan of Salvation being able to see my grandmother who I was not able to say good bye to allowed me to realize I will see her again. It helped my conversion. The Book of Mormon is an amazing book that I learn something new every day I read it. It developed my faith in Christ and builds my testimony. I know that Joseph Smith restored the church. I know this because someone with a third grade education could not right with the complexity and consistency as he did. I know Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ lives and loves each and every one of us. I know this to be true and stand as a witness of this. I testify that the Church is true and that we have a living prophet on the Earth today. I know this all to be true because I have prayed about it to gain a witness through the holy ghost and every time I gain the same answer that it is all true. Pray to find out for yourself.

How I live my faith

The best way I live my faith is by doing the best to follow the teachings of Christ. I go out with the missionaries as much as my schedule will allow me to. I read, pray, and go to church. I magnify my callings as best as i can. I am a ward missionary in my ward and i teach gospel principles for the newer members. I have only been a member a for a year and a half and it feels like i have been a member my whole life. I home teach families in my ward. I also am preparing myself to serve a full time mission. I live the best i know to be righteous, true, and according to the way the gospel dictates i should founded upon the teaching and commandments of Christ and God our eternal father. I love being the example because it can change someones life like my best friend did for me.
