Hi I'm Danielle Kaye Bjorklund

I grew up in in Tri-cities Washington, I am going on an LDS mission to Saltillo, Mexico, I am a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up in a very religious home only to see it fall apart. I am a triplet, I have a brother and sister the same age as me and I am the only one left active in the church. It has been a struggle to remain constant in my faith but I see my example affects my family positively. I love music, I was in the High school marching band and I now play almost all brass instruments. My favorite in the Euphonium which is just a baritone but slightly bigger. I love theater and acting as well as all the other elements that go with it, tech, stage managing, costume and make up design. I am a very active person and usually juggle 3 activities at once constantly. I love being on the water, surfing, swimming or on the field playing a ball game. Anyways! I am a big nerd, don't ask me about comics or anything in that region unless you want to spent some time in the subject. I love my family and my friends. They are the world to me.

Why I am a Mormon

When I went to church I often went alone, many people would commend me on my bravery and strength for doing so, when in all reality I went to church for comfort. Being in the Latter Day Saint church has a spirit and feeling of calmness and joy that I have never experienced anywhere before. Trust me I have looked. I am a Mormon because it brings me joy, and comfort knowing that I am in the true church and that I am following the road to my eternal salvation.

How I live my faith

I find living in faith is the one thing we will always strive to do. I have had a few callings helping look after the children in our church. or planning youth activities. I loved going to girls camp and being a youth camp leader. One of the best ways I have found to live happily is through service. I don't mean going around picking up the city garbage (although we do that sometimes) but sometimes it is the little things that make the biggest impact. I know allot of the youth (me included) really don't enjoy chores but if I keep in mind that I am serving a small act of kindness to my mom. Or taking out the garbage before dad gets home so he doesn't have to do it, these small acts of kindness and love are the true power of humbling our hearts so we may be able to hear that still small voice.
