Hi I'm Daniel

I grew up in the Northwest. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I have graduated from high school and will attend my first year of college after I return from my mission. I love reading and listening to all kinds of music. I play the trumpet and the tuba. Baseball and racquetball are my two favorite sports.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a member of this church my whole life. I have been able to grow up learning the principles of the gospel and everything makes sense. Not only do I have a "logical testimony", but I have a spiritual testimony as well. God's spirit will come to me at times when I am learning one of His principles and I will feel that the principle is true. I know that when we pray to Him, He listens and He will answer. Some say that my following is blind but that is not true. The only way to see for oneself if something is true is to try it. I have lived the gospel my whole life and I know from my own experience that it is true. I know that others will find it to be true as well if they are sincere in their search.

How I live my faith

I am an assistant bear den leader. I have completed numerous service projects while obtaining my Eagle Scout Award. I also help out my fellow members and city workers when we participate in city projects such as cleaning highways and refurbishing recreational centers.

What is being a Mormon like?

Being a Mormon is like being in a pitch black cave with everybody else in the world and the only difference between myself and the people around me that aren't members is that I have a light to guide myself. That light is my testimony. I am the only one that can see it and put it to full use but I am able to share it at times with others to help them get their own light. The light brings me a joy like nothing else in this world can. Knowing that God has a plan for all of us and that Jesus Christ set our example and came to earth to teach and to redeem everyone makes me so glad to be a part of this life on earth. I know that I will get to be with my family forever and that brings me joy as well. I love being able to share my light and help others receive theirs by serving them through the spirit.
