Hi I'm Daan

I live in the Netherlands. I like to play chess and soccer and many other sports and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

The hobby I spend the most time in is chess. I really love to play this game and to try to be smarter than my opponent. In 2011 I earned the title of Grandmaster. I also like to watch and play many other sports. Soccer is one of my favorites, but also tennis, racquetball and many other ball sports are fun to do or watch. I went to university and finished a bachelor's degree in linguïstics. I like different languages, although I don't speak that many languages fluently. I like to do things with my family and am happy to be in a big family with seven siblings.

Why I am a Mormon

I grew up in the mormon church, but only got baptized when I was 22 years old. At some moment in my life I wasn't really focussing on religion and focused more on chess and other things. But when my brother decided to go on a mission I decided to read more in the scriptures. Especially the Book of Mormon has been very helpful in helping me to grow a testimony of the truth of the restored gospel and my testimony is growing more and more by reading and pondering the scriptures and trying to follow the Lord as good as I can. Now a life without the gospel is just not imaginable for me anymore.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by setting a good example for the people around me. I have been working with the young men in my ward and it is really a blessing to see them grow in their lives.
