Hi I'm Daniel

I've grew up in the Midwest and Arkansas. I want to be a surgeon. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

One of my favorite things to do is spend time with friends. I love being outdoors and in nature. I also enjoy baking treats and giving them to random dorms in my college ward. I am interested in any kind of science and love talking about anything relating to that. I am learning French and I have tons of fun speaking French with friends or even random people who I find out speak French. Giving service is wonderful because I love to see other people happy and working together to accomplish a common goal. I am the oldest of 8 children and was the first to move out when I left for college. I hope to someday be married and have a family of my own.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents are both members of the church, so I've been connected to the church for my entire life. Over the first part of my life I participated in the church because that's what my parents taught me to do and supported me in. As I got older, however, I started to have questions and doubts about the church and that's when I had to start to learn for myself whether or not the church is true. As I have searched for this knowledge over the past years I have received witnesses of my own that this is the true church. Beyond that, I have found that I am happier when I am following the gospel of Christ than anything else. Being an active member of this church has brought me more blessings than I can realize and I know that continuing in faith will bring even more blessings in the future. As I have received this knowledge my desire to share the gospel with others has grown. I want everyone to have the opportunity to feel the happiness and peace that I feel as a member of the church.

How I live my faith

As part of my ward in college I've been assigned two dorm rooms as my home teaching "families." My assigned companion and I are responsible to get to know them, keep in contact with them, and be there for them in case they need anything. Home teaching is one of the things I love most about responsibilities in my ward because I get to go and make friends with people I might not otherwise talk to and I have a chance to help people. I go to church every Sunday and participate in ward or church activities throughout the week. One example from a couple of months ago was a ward sledding activity we called the "snocial." We all went to a great sledding hill and had fun together. At one point we got 28 people on a train of sleds that all went down the connected! I also live my faith by following the commandments that are found in the scriptures and revealed to us by our prophets.
