Hi I'm Daniel Merrill

I'm serving a mission, I am an artist, I love sports, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Daniel Merrill . I originally grew up in California but now live in Utah. I have grown to love playing volleyball, basketball, and snowboarding. I also love to do art. I first started with just drawing then I learned about other mediums and wanted to try them all so I do spray paint scratch boards and pretty much any other kind of art. But those are my favorite. I am the second of 5 kids and I love my family.

Why I am a Mormon

Both of my parents are have been members of the church their whole live so I guess I sort of grew up in the church. At the begging I just kept going to church cause that was where my family went every Sunday and that was where I got to hang out with friends but as I grew older I started to realize that I didn't really know why I was going. I eventually found my own testimony and the reason why I go to church and why I am still an active member of this church it is because I know that this is the only true church. I have prayed and pondered whether this is and have received my answer slowly not all at once. It came through little things like feeling the spirit during church or while watching Mormon channel videos. And hearing other people share their experiences that have brought them closer to the Savior. I have been able to see the difference this gospel makes in peoples lives. Do we really know what we have.

How I live my faith

I have been going to church my whole life and have most recently been called to serve a two year mission in California. I have been the leader in a couple of my young men's groups growing up.
