Hi I'm Daniel

I'm grew up in Australia. I'm a soon-to-be Father, a Step-Dad, a Husband, a Marketing Manager and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Australia as one of 7 kids in my family. I decided to be the first in my family to live abroad and moved to the UK in 2011. I met my wife in 2012 and after a lengthy courtship of 5 months became her husband and a step-dad all at once. Now I'm an expecting father with a child on the way very soon. I'm a Marketing Manager for a software company, but I've worked in marketing with everything from dancewear to motor cycles.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it is more than just a title that people know me by. I am a Mormon because it is an extended family of spiritual brothers and sisters united in the faith in a loving Heavenly Father and his son Jesus Christ. It is living my religion every day of the week, not just when others are watching. It is caring for others no matter our faith or background and finding common ground to share and enjoy. I'm a Mormon because it makes me a better person. It helps me as a husband, father, brother, son and friend. I am a Mormon because it makes me happy and brings me peace in my life. I know where I came from, why I am here and where I am going.

How I live my faith

I work with the men in the congregation to help us as husbands and fathers care for the needs of others in our area (both physically and spiritually). I help to arrange visits for the elderly and widowed women in our area and ensure that we visit all of the members of our congregation and friends of the church to lift their spirits and ensure every one of them have food in their cupboards and a safe roof over their heads. I love organising barbeques and football games and other social events that let us enjoy our friendships as a big happy family of friends.

What is the priesthood?

The priesthood is God's authority. It's what the Apostles of old were given by Jesus Christ to help lead and govern the church and it is very real. Through the priesthood we can bless the lives of others and perform the ordinances (or outward acts such as baptism and the sacrament) that we are commanded to perform to follow the example of The Saviour. Without this power we do not have the right to perform these ordinances. Show more Show less
