Hi I'm Dane

I'm a born and bred Minnesotan. I love hockey, baseball, and cold weather. I'm serving a mission in Mexico.

About Me

I am the oldest of 7 kids in my family, with 6 boys and 1 girl. I love my family and the fact that it is huge. I love spending time with my extended family as well and do so as much as possible. I love baseball and have been playing for the last ten years but have put that as well as the rest of my life on hold while I am serving a mission for the Church. I love the winter weather of Minnesota and am sorely missing it here in Mexico. I also love playing hockey with my brothers and friends. I am loyal to every sports team from Minnesota. Baseball: Twins; Football: Vikings; Hockey: Wild; College: University of Minnesota Golden Gophers. I love reading, the outdoors, spending time with my family and having fun. I like to go to the movies, play video games, watch tv, and those kinds of things but not in excess. I´d rather be out playing ball or swimming and tubing on the lake. But like I mentioned all that is not happening right now as I serve the Lord.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me happy. Living this life and following the principles and commandmants of God brings happiness and peace to my life. I love my family and want to live with the for eternity and I know the only way I can do so is through living correctly. I have a testimony of this church and am sharing it with the world. But besides all that it´s fun to be a Mormon. People think you do strange things which gives you opportunities to share your beliefs and meet new people. We have great activites for families and youth of every age. I know that there is a purpose to life and where this life will lead me. Basically in the end it all comes down to the happiness.

How I live my faith

I am living my faith by serving a full-time 2 year mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have learned the spanish language and share my love of the gospel with people I have never met and am happy to do it. I strive to become more like Christ in my daily life and to do as He would have me do. I work hard to help others understand about our faith and our church and especially about what Christ did for us. I love the gospel and how happy it makes me and want others to be able to feel the same happiness in their lives.
