Hi I'm Dani

I'm a sister, a daughter, a musician, a student, a movie buff and a sports fan. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a student in Utah and I am studying political science and business. I plan on attending law school in the next couple years and hope to end up working in the sports and entertainment law industry. I am a huge sports fan (mostly American football and basketball). I am also an aspiring musician. I have co-written and released a couple of originals as well as covered a few other songs. I am a singer and am currently working on learning the guitar and brushing up on my piano. I used to think I wanted to work in government office because I love public speaking and debate - anything where I can voice and even argue my opinions and beliefs. However, after I spent a semester in Washington DC, I decided that was not the path for me. That is when I decided I should combine my two passions (athletics and music) with my dreams and goals in my career.

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into the church. Both of my parents were raised in the gospel and taught us of it's importance all through our childhood. However, I am an adult now and being a Mormon is a daily choice for me. My parents don't force me to go to church or believe in God, they never have. This is the religion that I choose. I can't imagine my life without the church. It taught me who I am and helps me get through each and every day. I love knowing that God hears and answers my prayers. I love knowing that through my Savior, Jesus Christ, I can be forgiven of my sins. I love having the Holy Ghost with me to help me with my daily decisions and calm me through my anxieties. But perhaps the most important thing for me is the opportunity I have to live with my family forever. About two and half years ago my 12-year old passed away due to a tragic accident. It was hands-down the most difficult thing that I have ever experienced. This gospel is the only thing that saved me and my family. I don't understand how people could lose the people closest to them without the knowledge that they will see them again. I have the incredible blessing to know that not only will I be able to see him again, but, because my family was sealed in the temple, I will be able to live with him forever if I live worthily. I want to live with my family and my Savior for time and all eternity. I want to make my Father in Heaven proud of me. And I want my future family to grow up with the knowledge, opportunities and standards that I did. That is why I am a Mormon.

How I live my faith

Living my faith is a daily adventure. There is always something there to discourage me from dressing modestly, speaking appropriately and kindly serving. I am not perfect at it and I definitely have some harder days. However, attending my church meetings every Sunday and fulfilling my callings in my ward are the weekly reminders that I use to get me through those times. I have served as a teacher to the other single adults in my area as well as helped plan meals and activities throughout the weeks. I have been a visiting teacher which means that I check on and assist other women in the ward with their problems and their needs. The biggest part of living my faith is following the example of Jesus Christ and being my own kind of example to those around me.
