Hi I'm Daniel Cedeno

I grew up in Pennsylvania. I love skateboarding, music, and hanging with friends and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I'm 19 years and preparing to serve as a missionary in the Irvine, California mission. I currently work at a pizza place slinging dough and filling ovens and when i'm not working i love to spend time outside. In Pennsylvania there's plenty of woods and wildlife so i like to take in the scenery by going on hikes, spending time in the creek, or jogging on the network of dirt roads that surround the small town where i live. To be honest there really isn't much else to do here anyway. I also love skateboarding. I've been skateboarding just about every day since the 6th grade and i still enjoy doing it. i also enjoy riding longboards and in the winter snowboarding. As far as team sports go in high school i played soccer and baseball although i wasn't very good at either. I guess my knack is more for sports that involve a board and i enjoy them much more anyway. And one day i will learn to surf if i ever get to an ocean. Im very excited to be serving a mission in California and if all goes well after my mission my plans are to go to BYU hawaii for business management.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because i know that God the father and Jesus Christ live. and that we are truly sons and daughters of our heavenly father and that he cares and loves each of us and has a plan for each of his children to reach there maximum potential and happiness in this life and in the life to come if we do all that he asks and put him first in our lives. I also know that Jesus Christ is are ultimate example and loved us so much that he endured the atonement that we may be forgiven of ours sins and have the opportunity to live with the father again some day. And im so grateful to have the knowledge of eternal families and the plan of salvation and all the other answers that the gospel of Jesus Christ brings into my life. And the hope it brings to know that this life is not the end of our existence or purpose and that is why im a Mormon.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by just being an example i guess. At work everyone knows that i dont drink alcohol or go to parties or anything and most of them ive been friends with for a long time and went to high school with and they know that im LDS. And its the same with skateboarding because you get to meet a lot of random people skateboarding and i think they can see the difference because i dont smoke or drink or swear or any thing like that and thats rare when your hanging out with a bunch of young people. And ofcouse i go to church every week and make sure that im going to all of my classes and take time to read the scriptures and pray every day.
