Hi I'm Daniel Dansie

I grew up in Utah. I served a mission in Utica, New York and will now serve a Youth Church Service Mission. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I am a history buff, I love the outdoors, and I like to go shooting, camping, and fishing. I grew up in Utah my whole life. I came to love the outdoors and would go fishing, camping, walking, hiking, and going shooting a lot. I came to appreciate all that our Heavenly Father has created so that mankind as a whole can grow and learn. I have been blessed to have been raised in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, my mom was baptized when she was pregnant with me and I could not be happier that she made that choice. I am 6'5" and I do not play basketball =D I am hoping to get into the discus throw when I complete my mission in Utica, New York. I have 4 younger siblings who are the best, though they can get annoying at times. I hope to also start up my own business soon after my mission.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon even though I was raised from birth I started to question my faith in what I had been taught my whole life, I know now from my own study and prayers that the gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth. I am serving a mission right now because I want others to have the same knowledge and understanding that I do, I am sad to see some of my friends not accept the gospel because I love them and want what is best for them and I hope I can be an example for them so that they will return to the true path of happiness.

How I live my faith

I attended church each Sunday but it does not stop there, I always tried to keep my commitments that I have made and try to do my best with all of the callings that I received. I try to be an example to people that look up to me and for others to see. I served a mission in Utica New York, but was sent home for medical reasons and will now be serving a Youth Church Service Mission in Utah. Just as everyone else in the world, I have had my personal issues but I know that if you lean on the lord that you can overcome anything.

Are Mormons Christians?

Daniel Dansie
Simply stated, Yes we are. We are called THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST OF LATTER DAY SAINTS, not the church of Joseph Smith or the church of the Book of Mormon. We follow the teachings of the Bible just as other church's do we also follow the teachings of the Book of Mormon, which supports the Bible just as the Bible supports the Book of Mormon.
