Hi I'm Daniel Gonsalves

I grew up in Vermont and moved to Utah right before i turned 18. My parents are converts and i'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Daniel, I love my friends, family, and people in general. I moved when I was 18 for school, and some snowboarding as well. I love sports and being outdoors.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that it makes me happier. It makes me want to be a better person and helps me grow as a person. The more I grow my testimony the happier I am. I have opportunities to help others in service and in many other ways because of what the church and my own beliefs are. I have been able to plan out my future better and avoid things that would give me problems. I know that my family grows closer and stronger because of our faith.

How I live my faith

I love this church and what it has done for the world but more personally what it has done for me. I have been so blessed and continue to receive blessings everyday. Home teaching has been a great way to grow and strengthen my testimony especially when i plan out the lesson. I am the ward mission leader in my ward and have seen how the gospel spreads and how people want to learn.

What is the Mormon lifestyle like? How do Mormons live?

Daniel Gonsalves
I have many friends that are not Mormon and I live very similar to how they live. I see how they have made mistakes and everyone does but there are differences. One of the biggest differences is having and knowing my standards. I know that drugs, alcohol, and things that are socially known to cause problems or be wrong are things i will never do. I say my prayers everyday and attend church every Sunday. Show more Show less
