Hi I'm Danielle

I'm a dreamer, an aspiring traveler, a go-getter and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I've always been known for putting too much on my plate. My senior year in high school, I was elected the Student Body Secretary, I served as the girls tennis team captain, the Homecoming Committee Chair, I took (and passed) two Advanced Placement classes, and balanced two jobs on top of all that. I love being kept busy and I have a wonderful family who supports me through it all. Beginning next month, I will be taking an 18 month break from school and work to serve a mission in Canada where I'll develop myself and help the people of Vancouver come closer to our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. There are so many trials and hardships that humans face every day, and although being a member of this church doesn't prevent bad things from happening to me, it does make them easier for me to bear. I know that Jesus Christ suffered for all the sins of the world and that through him we can each be perfected and return to both him and our Father in Heaven again. Because of Jesus Christ, I've personally been able to seek true repentance and receive forgiveness from the mistakes I've made. I also have the knowledge that our Heavenly Father knows and loves each one of us personally and that he knew us prior to our lives on this Earth. He wants us to return to him someday and we can do so through studying the Book of Mormon and living the commandments. I love this gospel and am so grateful to have it in my daily life.

How I live my faith

In my home ward, I have been blessed with the assignment of teaching the 3-4 year-olds every Sunday. I used to believe that I was the one teaching them, but I learned quickly that it was the other way around. These young children have taught me each week how to truly "...becometh as a child, submissive, meek, humble, patient, full of love, willing to submit to all things which the Lord seeth fit to inflict upon him, even as a child doth submit to his father." (Mosiah 3:19).
