Hi I'm Danny

I love sports, traveling, spending time with friends, being with my family and love to have fun. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I grew up my whole life playing basketball, baseball and football. I love traveling, spending time with and making new friends, but most importantly spending time with my family. I served as a missionary in Tijuana Mexico and therefore I speak Spanish. I am studying business and communications at BYU. Many of my friends and family are not members of the LDS church. I am an independent business owner that is currenly going international.

Why I am a Mormon

There was a time in my life I had to make a decision: to go with my friends and do what they did, or live the gospel faithfully. I read the Book of Mormon and prayed to know if it was true. I clearly received an answer that this is the same gospel and church that Christ himself established when He was on the earth. Now, as I strive to live the commandments I continually receive a positive confirmation that I am in fact doing the right thing. I am extremely happy as an active, hands on member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I do know, with no doubt nor confusion that this church is true.

How I live my faith

My faith isn't just an important part of my life, it is my life. I live it and I love it. I have come to know for myself that Christ lives, that we do have prophets of God on the earth today and that the work of the Lord is just as much active as it has ever been in the history of the world. I love the gospel and know that it is in fact true happiness. I have received leadership callings up until my mission, which I served in Mexico for 2 years, and continue with my active service in my callings. I try to find and loving finding opportunities to help and serve others.

Why was a Restoration of the Gospel needed? Haven’t we always had the Bible?

Yes, we have always had the bible, but as we know there are many different interpretations of the teachings of the bible. This confusion leads to many different beliefs and churches. God teaches us that there is only one straight path and that needs 1. a Prophet of God that talks to God face to face, so that we can hear and understand exactly what God wants (just like the ancient days like Moses) 2. The authority of God (Priesthood), which allows us to make promises and minister with the sacred "key" that is authorized to open the special doors of heaven to us. Without these blessings, much confusion exists. God is a God of clarity, not confusion. I know that the gospel has in fact been restored through the Prophet Joseph Smith. I have no doubt. If you want to know for yourself, find out more about the Book of Mormon, read it, and pray and ask God if these things are true. I know you will receive an answer, just like me and millions of people throughout the world. Show more Show less

What is the Word of Wisdom that Mormons talk about?

It is a very special commandment. It keeps us healthy and happy. We simply have to avoid the substances that are listed above and treat our bodies as a "temple of God". We need to avoid harmful subtances and strive to obtain healthy foods to love and respect the God-given bodies we enjoy today. Show more Show less

Do you really believe there is a prophet like Moses alive today?

I know there is. In the bible it teaches that we shall know a Prophet is truly a prophet based on his fruits and his labors. Today the prophet is Thomas Spencer Monson and the sweet, warm feelings that I get every time I hear him talk cannot come from any other source other than God. Everything that is good comes from God, everything that is bad comes from the adversary. Good can't come from bad and bad can't come from good. I know that he talks to God and receives specific revelation for us all in these difficult times in the world. Show more Show less
