Hi I'm Val Danklef

I am a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I have lived in Pleasant Grove Utah most of my life.

About Me

I am retired from a career in IT. I am married and have two children and four grandchildren. I am enjoying life and being with my family.

Why I am a Mormon

I am LDS because that is the religion I was raised in, but I remain very active because of the knowledge I have gained and the my testimony. At 19 years of age I served a full time mission in Canada for 2 years, and my wife and I are leaving this November to serve a mission in Georgia. The greatest single event in my life was when I understood the plan of salvation and my relationship to our Father in heaven and His son Jesus Christ. I know I am a son of our eternal Father in Heaven. I understand the sacrifice that the Savior made for me and all mankind. If I remain faithful, I can be with my family eternally in the kingdom of God.

How I live my faith

I have been active in civic issues, served on the city council, and am currently the treasurer of our local Rotary International club. I have been active in Family History research and have been a consultant for several years.
