Hi I'm Jon Daniel

I from Alabama, Im a skateboarder, I'm serving in the California Carlsbad Mission, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I love to skateboard, I've been skateboarding since I was about 8 years old, It helps take my mind off of things and get away from the world. I'm an artist, an older brother that is trying hard to be a good example, and more than anything, someone that knows how precious this gospel is. And I LOVE life. The mountains, the oceans, the people you meet, the things you can do, I'm in love with all of it. I'm the second oldest of six kids and I'm a twin. I love learning new things, working hard, and helping people. I love the feeling you get when you make someone happy and know that you put a smile on their face. I decided to serve a mission for my church and was called to the California Carlsbad mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints because of the truth, happiness and guidence that you cant find anywhere else but here. I know what its like to live without the blessings of the gospel in my life. I was baptized when I was young, but was never really active in the church until about right after I graduated high school. I was not handed a testimony or forced to believe anything. I had to find out for myself whether or not this church was true. I could take it or leave it if I wanted to. I decided that I would give it a chance and try it out. I decided to actually live the gospel and read the scriptures for the first time in my life, and as I did my eyes were opened to glourious truths that I had been completely oblivious to my whole life. I've had experiences in my life that have conifirmed my testimony of this gospel. Acting upon even a twig of faith will allow God to grow it. All you have to do is act.

How I live my faith

I strive each and every day to be a little better and to follow the example of my Savior and to help those around me to be happy. As of right now Im serving the people of Southern California helping them feel and know of the joy and peace that I have experienced through the gospel of Jesus Christ.
