Hi I'm Daniela

I grew up in Italy. I love to work out and to jog. I graduated cum laude in math, I'm a mom. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I love to be active and work out. I go to the gym regularly where I enjoy lifting weights, jogging and Zumba classes. Working out gives me the energy to take care of my family. I love cooking, cake decorating and surfing the Internet. My family is my top priority. I got a degree in math and I have been a math teacher for some time but then I decided to concentrate my efforts on raising my three children. Studying is an important priority in our house but number one priority is to reach our eternal potential as a family. We love spending time together.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been raised in the Catholic Church in Italy. I was very active until my university years when I met the missionaries of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I was fascinated by their devotion and their way of living their religion by being true to their principles without sounding too rigid. The spirit that I felt being in their company led me to investigate the Church more. Since then, through a series of spiritual experiences, I have come to gain a testimony of the restored gospel and of the divinity of the Book of Mormon. It has been a while now but I still believe and feel the blessings of being an active member of the church. The words of our living prophets are a source of peace and guidance in my life. When I'm at church I feel at home.

How I live my faith

In our church we are called by our bishop to serve in different positions for a specific amount of time. It is a way to strengthen each other and to develop our talents. At the moment I LOVE being a Cub Scout leader. I work with boys age 8 to 11 and I help them to progress to the Scout program. I have served in different positions in the past, from being the director of a Family History Center (a church genealogical library open to the public) to being president of the children organization also called Primary and a Sunday School teacher. Through a program called Visiting Teaching we take care of the women in the church monthly and I enjoy visiting those assigned to my care and helping them in their needs. I also volunteer in our public schools as needed.
