Hi I'm Daniel

I grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah. I enjoy making films and photography & playing out door sports like Rugby.

About Me

All my life I've lived in the capital of the LDS Church in Salt Lake City Utah. I grew up with 2 brothers and one sister. I'm about to go serve an LDS mission in the Portugal Lisbon mission. I always loved making films, and shooting photos and being able to share those with the ones I love most. Film & Photography allow me to capture the moments that people cherish most, and still make it entertaining. I enjoy rock climbing and playing any kind of sport. I use to play on a Rugby team while in High school. I'm always open to try something new. I try to take advantage of any opportunity that can expand my knowledge and allow me to learn & understand.

Why I am a Mormon

I do have a true strong testimony of The Church Of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Even though I have grew up in the capitol of the LDS Church in Salt Lake City, Utah all my life, I'm still a convert. I'm more the grateful that the church was easily invited into my life when I was born. I was taught young and learned many amazing things but still I had questions of my own that I still needed answers to. Even though the church told me all these things were true all my life, it was time for me to test my faith, myself and ask my loving Heavenly Father if they were. I fasted, prayed with a real intent, studied the scriptures to look for more answers, and pondered on them like no other. Eventually with patience I got a amazingly strong true answer when I walked through the Draper Temple open house and stepped into the Celestial room. I received such a powerful feeling letting me know that I do have a Heavenly Father in Heaven and he did sacrifice his only begotten son to atone, not just for my sins but also the sins of all the ones I love and everyone who has ever taken a step on this planet. I knew that families can be together forever, in this life and the next. I do have a loving savior in heaven who wants me to try my best to get back to him again. I know if we strive to do what is right in all things and love one another that we will be happy for eternity with the ones we love most. I'm excited to teach these things to the people in Lisbon, Portugal so that they can take advantage of the blessings I have had. That they may know this gospel is set for us to get back to heaven again. I love the Church!! It has a power that you can't feel anywhere else on this planet. My name is Daniel Brandon Garcia, this is my testimony and I'm a Mormon.

How I live my faith

At the moment I'm a Sunday school teacher for the 4 & 5 year olds in our ward. Every Sunday I teach them something new and share with them the knowledge I have learned from my leaders and parents while in my youth. I attend church as much as I possibly can every week, cause it prepares me, and strengthens me so that I can face the next following week and the trials it has ready for me. Whenever the opportunity is open to me I try to be friends with new people. I like to learn and understand beliefs that people might have, so that I will know how to act around them and treat them as a friend.
