Hi I'm Danielle Hess

I'm a Utahn. I'm a Harry Potter Fan. I love knitting. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in Utah, where I developed a love for camping, hiking, and playing in the mud. Whether it's knitting a blanket to making birdhouses I love being crafty. I have a passion for learning and for discovering things. Most of all I love my family. I love being silly and spending time with them, and I know that without them I would not be a very happy person.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born Mormon. But that's not why I am a Mormon today. I am a Mormon because I believe with my whole heart that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints really is God's church. Being a part of this church blesses my life and answers my questions, and it keeps me on the 'strait and narrow'! Having a relationship with God and being able to rely on my Savior Jesus Christ helps me over come any struggles or trials that come may way, and helps me deal with the little stresses of daily life.

How I live my faith

Right now I am living my faith my taking a break from family, friends, TV, and camping to serve a full time mission. I live my faith by sharing the gospel with the great people of Indiana! I teach, serve, and love these people! I live my faith by striving my hardest to follow the example of Jesus Christ in being kind and loving all men.

What is faith?

Danielle Hess
Like knowing that the sun will rise tomorrow morning, faith is having a confident trust in God. It is knowing and acting in the belief that all of his promises will be kept, even when it takes some extra patience. Faith is a like a spiritual muscle- if we don't excersize it it becomes weak- but when we use it and grow it gives us strength to do hard things. Show more Show less
