Hi I'm Daniel Hildebrandt

i grew up in minnesota and lived in utah, i am serving a mission and i'm a mormon!

About Me

i grew up in minnesota till my parents got divorced than my mom took us to utah, as i grew up with seven sisters and three brothers, i was a middle child with one older brother and five older sisters. i always looked up to my brother and always tried to beat him in everything. i love just about every sport though i only play never watch, ive gotten into tennis, ultimate frisbee and parkour. ive been trying to learn the piano and like singing even though i cant. im big on jogging and run races every now and than.

Why I am a Mormon

when i was about 14 i wasnt sure the church was true or not but i never really cared i liked going and felt good about it, i always wanted to listen to my mom so i went and knew she had a strong testimony of its truth so i believed because she did until i needed gods help, the help that no one else could give me but my savior. this help that i needed was love, i never really felt loved a few times in my life, i would just lay down and cry thinking of how lonely i felt. on one occasion of feeling totally dispaired i started crying to god in prayer asking for his love because i was taught that i was a child of god and that he loved me and i knew that if that was true then all that i would need was to feel a little bit of that love he gives to all who are wanting of it. so as i prayed i stopped crying and began to be overcomed with the strongest feeling of love i have never felt before, so i knew that my god loved me and that this church is true and that all we need to do is ask god when we are in need and then his love can save us from ourselves.

How I live my faith

I've always had strong faith in the church but never really lived it because i didnt think it applied to me much but i always followed gods commandment which i am very grateful for. i have more recently gotten more active and finished the book of mormon for myself and now know for myself of the truth of this church not just because i grew up in it but because i've asked god myself if its true and he has given me the answer that it is! and that is why i now serve a mission for my god and savior jesus christ and want all to know how to find out the truth for themselves!
