Hi I'm Danny

I was raised in Draper Utah. I love playing sports and hanging out with my "bro's". I love being happy. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

Throughout high school I played on the lacrosse team. I love to hang out with friends and spend time with my family. Any opportunity that I am given, I like to go snowboarding with my buddies. I recently went to a semester at a nearby university where I studied mechanical engineering. I am the youngest of eight kids. I have three brothers and four sisters. All of which are now married and have wonderful children. I am an uncle. I am a sports fanatic. I hang out with my friends. I am a Mormon.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born and raised a Mormon. Throughout my childhood I was taught the gospel and all the stories of the Book of Mormon, but I never really understood what the church meant to me until my eleventh birthday. When I was just a kid and on through childhood, my Dad was my very best friend. I remember when he would get home from work he would always be sure to find me and give me a big hug and tell me that he loved me. We would spend our evenings together doing random chores around the house or even watching a movie together. I remember when my mom would say goodnight to us and head up the stairs, my Dad would sneak me a drink of soda. We were the greatest of pals. Two months after my eleventh birthday my Dad passed away. I was miserable. One day my best friend was there, the next morning he was gone. Then I thought about the plan of salvation and I found comfort trough the gospel. I know that through this church and the gospel of Jesus Christ, I will see my Dad again. This is my testimony, and my witness. I share them with you, in the sacred name of Jesus Christ, my savior and redeemer. Amen.

How I live my faith

All growing up I attended the program for young men. Each week we would get together one night and do an activity. Once a month we would go around the neighborhood and do service activities. Whether that was picking up litter, landscaping, or simply visiting someone that was in need. It was awesome to have that opportunity to make a little difference in my community.

What does Mormonism teach regarding baptism?

Baptism is an important step to eternal salvation. By being baptized, we show our obedience to our heavenly father. When we are baptized, we are made clean and our sins are forgiven. Baptism must be done by the correct authority, by one who has the priesthood of God. It is a beautiful ordinance given from our heavenly father to help us in our earthly being. Show more Show less
