Hi I'm Danae

I love hanging with my family, laughing, playing and creating fun memories.

About Me

Basically, I just love serving and helping others. I have 7 brothers and sisters and we are always having a blast together. We love to play board games and compete.... I almost always lose. I love exploring the world around me. :) No matter what we are doing, there is never a dull moment around here!

Why I am a Mormon

Sometimes, as the oldest child, there are a lot of expectations placed upon you. Sometimes you measure up, but sometimes you do not. It is so easy to become discouraged and disappointed with yourself, but my belief in Christ reminds me that my weaknesses can become strengths. Because Christ performed the infinite Atonement, I have the opportunity to turn to Him and become better. I can overcome my insecurities and my doubts. When I am experiencing a trial, I know I am never alone. In those moments when you are not sure how to continue through the struggles, you can receive comfort and joy. Even among trials, our Heavenly Father wants us to be happy, and He will provide a way.

How I live my faith

It is easy to find ways to serve in the church. I have been asked to play piano for the children's classes. It is such a joy to hear their beautiful voices. The songs teach the children about our Savior, Jesus Christ and our Heavenly Father. Sometimes we sing Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes and other such fun songs to allow the kids a time to release their wiggles. What I love about this calling is that the music truly invites feelings of peace and joy. Often, I find myself singing the songs. The truths they teach help me in trials or struggles. Simple, yet profound truths are taught to these children and they can understand it. Sometimes, they understand it better than I can! Because I love my Savior, I want to serve, as He did. I volunteer at a local elementary school to teach ballet to girls who don't have the opportunity to take lessons elsewhere. It is so much fun to see the joy on their faces, as they tiptoe across the stage in their little tutu's. I also love babysitting for moms who need a day out. :)
