Hi I'm Danelle Beckstrand

I'm a University student. I'm a wife. I'm a community volunteer and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah County and after graduating high school I started college at Utah State University. I met my husband in a math class and it was practically love at first sight. We were married a year later and have loved every second of it. Although we are both in school and practically penniless, we have found that there is a certain joy that can come with living the simple life. We love to come up with creative ways to do the things we love on a budget.

Why I am a Mormon

The gospel of Jesus Christ is a huge part of my life. I live the gospel because I know it makes me happier, it brings me hope, and it helps me bring joy to others. I have always known that we have a Father in Heaven and that he has a plan for us. Having the gospel in my life helps me to know this life on earth is worth it. The things we learn and experience all happen for a reason. Our Heavenly Father loves us and we have the opportunity to one day become like him. That is why I strive to live the gospel everyday.

How I live my faith

I currently serve the women in my ward by visiting them, teaching gospel truths, and observing their individual needs. I enjoy getting to know the women of my ward as we spend time serving each other. I have met a lot of life long friends through providing service and accepting assignments given to my husband and I.
