Hi I'm Daniel

I've lived in Norfolk all my life, I've been playing the piano for many years and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently studying music, maths and chemistry at 6th form college and I love playing the piano. My favourite composer is Beethoven, but I love playing all sorts of music, from sonatas to rock songs like Bohemian Rhapsody. I love performing at local events, whether it's for schools or at church where I get to play the organ. I have a keen interest in science and how the world works, in particular chemistry. I like carrying out practicals in the lab at college but I need to be more careful than I have been in the past, particularly whilst carrying boiling, toxic chemicals.

Why I am a Mormon

I have been a Mormon my entire life, but this doesn't mean that I haven't faced opposition. I could choose to leave church at any time, but nothing would make me want to do that. I have seen and experienced how much joy the church brings to individuals, families, communities and society. As I've been growing up in the church, I have increased my knowledge of Jesus Christ and my desire to follow him. I know that he lives and that he is not only my Saviour, but yours also. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God and that we have a prophet on the Earth today. I know that the Book of Mormon is true and that if we live by its principles, we can obtain happiness in this life and in the life to come. If you want to find out for yourself if these things are true, you only have to ask.

How I live my faith

I currently teach the children at church on a weekly basis which I thoroughly enjoy. It also gives me valuable experience for later in life, possibly with a future career. I also help with missionary work in the area from time to time which helps me to build a stronger bond with both those in the church and outside of it. This helps me in my preparation to serve as a missionary in a few months time. I strongly believe that being active in my faith is far more important than simply keeping these things to myself. It is vital to share this great knowledge and these wonderful experiences with as many people as possible, especially those close to me.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

A testimony means that a person knows that what they are saying and what they believe in is true. It is obtained through trials, experiences, questions and a desire to believe. Show more Show less
