Hi I'm Dan Schouten

I grew up in Riverton. I have a bright hope for the future, for everyone. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in what used to be a small town. Now it is booming with businesses on practically every corner. I built furniture in high school to occupy my time and to cultivate a passion for something. I never really focused on the things taught in church. one day in my senior year in high school in seminary my teacher issued a challenge. It was simply to read your scriptures daily. I did as we were asked amazingly. It changed my life like nothing else before.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was down to college I had some roommates that well weren't the best influences. It wasn't just me though it seems that most people have this experience. If I didn't have my faith in Christ and his gospel it would have been very likely that I would have just followed them in their ways and ultimately become someone who I knew I wasn't. I'm sure that I would have gone through the heartache and sorrow that so many could have easily avoided. just by living the principles that the were taught earlier in their lives. The commandments of God are too constricting to many people but to those who live them and see the blessings that come from them make it well worth it to seemingly give up something so minor. when in reality they are gaining much more in the end.

How I live my faith

I am surely very far from being perfect as a human being as a member of society. how I live my faith is little by little daily to try and do better than I did the day before. I know that God has created a path back to him and we are able to do so by changing ourselves little by little to become the best people that we can be.
