Hi I'm Dan

My life consists of math, music, and Jesus Christ. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born in Sacramento, California, but I have lived in various places in the United States, including Riverton, Utah; Miami, Florida; Orlando, Florida; Boston, Massachusetts; Orem, Utah; and Chicago, Illinois. I recently finished my first year of college at Brigham Young University, studying Mathematics and Computer Science. I come from a family of six children, and I am fourth in line. I like playing sports, including basketball, volleyball, and soccer. I also enjoy playing videogames, riding my bike, and reading.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents were both members of the Church when I was born, so I have grown up with this church my entire life. But I choose to continue to follow the Gospel of Jesus Christ because of the knowledge I have about its truthfulness and the blessings that I receive from living the Gospel. As promised in the scriptures and the teachings of the modern prophets, we receive blessings to overcome the trials of this life as we live in accordance with the teachings of the Gospel. I have seen this in my own life, and I know it to be true that we receive God's help and we feel His love as we do the things he asks of us. I also know that the teachings of the Gospel are true. I have come to know of these things through the power and influence of God. I know that this church is true. I know that the Book of Mormon is true, and that by abiding by its teachings, we can draw closer to our Heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ. I know that Christ suffered for us, and through His sacrifice, we can truly be cleansed of sin. I know that through righteous living, we will be able to live forever with our families. This knowledge helps me because it gives my hope for the life to come, one where we can be happy for eternity.

How I live my faith

In my life now, I focus my efforts on sharing the message of Jesus Christ by talking to others every day and trying to help them strengthen their faith in Christ. I also try to help others in my church community to come closer to Christ every day and encourage them to share the message of Christ with others as well. I have served those in my church congregation by visiting with them on a regular basis to befriend them, render service to them, and talk with them and teach them the words of Christ. I have also served in my youth in friendshipping others of my age, helping them to feel comfortable in our church congregation, and helping them to come closer to Christ. I plan on giving service like this throughout my life, to the Church, those around me, and those in my community.
