Hi I'm Daniel Bruce Linderman

I grew up in Visalia California. I have four brothers and one sister. I am going to serve in the Adriatic South Mission.

About Me

I actually only have three brothers... but the website wont let me change it...I am currently a student at the University of Southern California and I am studying chemical engineering. In high school I played water polo and swam on the school swim team. I enjoy lots of outdoor activities such as surfing, wake boarding, skiing, and snowboarding. On July 3rd 2013 I will leave to serve a full time mission in the Adriatic South Mission. This mission includes the countries of Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro, and Macedonia.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that this church is the true church. My parents raised me in a church but throughout the years I have been able to obtain a testimony of my own through my many experiences. The foundation of my testimony is in the family. I know that if I live The Lord's commandments and stay faithful throughout my life I can return to live with my family. I know that the Book of Mormon is the word of God just as the bible is the word of God. I know that God has given us a prophet today because he loves us and wants us to be guided back to him. I know that this gospel was restored by Joseph Smith and that he was a prophet chosen by God to Translate the Book of Mormon. I have been Blessed by this gospel in so many ways and it has helped me to get through many hard trials in my life. I know that my Heavenly Father loves me and knows me personally. I know that everyday I will be blessed for keeping his commandments and living worthily to someday retunr to live with him.

How I live my faith

I was really able to start "living my faith" when I got to college. At college i was able to serve in ward calling, participate in the student member activities, and most important share the gospel with people in my classes and that I met on campus about the gospel. I will take a break from school for two years to truly "live my faith" by serving a full time mission (like I said above).
