Hi I'm Danielle Rae Esplin

I play collegiate volleyball. I will be serving a mission in Tacoma, Washington. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

About me; I am a freshman in college on Athletic and Academic scholarship. I play Collegiate volleyball and I love every second of it! I'm going into the nursing program. I love to sing, draw, sprint, and laugh my guts out on occasion... I love hanging with my family. I'm the youngest of 5 siblings. My life isn't picture perfect, but it's beautiful because of that. I have many weaknesses, challenges and struggles just like everyone else... What makes the difference is how you deal with what your given. I choose to love what I've been given. I choose to be happy. And how I am able to do that is through the Gospel of Jesus Christ! I hope you continue reading to find out more about why I choose to live this way. (:

Why I am a Mormon

I know it's cliche, but this gospel seriously has "the secrets to the universe." And not only can you learn about the answers to those questions, you can also feel a confirmation of its truthfulness. and once you've felt that, it is undeniable! If you just take the challenge and listen to our beliefs with an open heart, you WILL get your answer.I promise you, because I did. I've grown up in this Gospel and been around it all my life. But that's not why I am a Mormon. Just like any convert, I've had to take a step back, and seriously search it out. I'm a Mormon because I've found out for myself to know of its truthfulness. Everywhere I look I can see evidence of the truth! It brings me much needed happiness, comfort, and security in my life. I rely on the Gospel of Jesus Christ because I fall short with my many imperfections. It's so great to know that I can change for the better. With our Savior's help my mistakes can be erased, and that I don't go through anything alone; Ever! It's not just a way of life for me, it's who I am and something that will always be present in my life. It's the greatest blessing that I've ever been given and I'm truly grateful. The gospel not only refines me, but Defines me. I know WHY i'm here on earth. I know WHO I am, I know that death is not the end. I know Christ knows me personally and has been through everything I've been through. I believe that other churches also have truth to them. I accept and love people from other religions. But I know without a shadow of a doubt that this is the only church that has the COMPLETE truth on the earth today. I'm a Mormon because I KNOW it's true. I've found that out for myself. You could read this over and over again and believe me, but it starts with YOU to honestly know. Please, if you are uncertain about any of life's questions or about which church is the true church of God, I encourage you to pray. Your Father in Heaven IS aware of you. He is just waiting for you to want to know!James1:5(:

How I live my faith

I attend church every Sunday. I am a visiting teacher. I attend all my meetings. I seek after goodness, and true happiness! I live the Gospel by praying to my Father in Heaven and reading the scriptures each day. and I find that as I live the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I live this Gospel by following it with exactness, because I love my Savior and my Heavenly Father and I know that's what They want for me. I have many weaknesses, but I try to live a little better each day. I will be serving a mission in Washington in January. I live it, I love it, and I know it's true!! And I want others to come to know of it, too!
