Hi I'm Danny

I grew up in Utah. I volunteered to serve my church as a full-time missionary for 2 years. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Danny. I have been a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints my whole life. I come from a family of 6 kids, and I am the youngest with a twin sister. I am going on my two year mission to Lima, Peru just 4 days after my twin sister gets married for time and all eternity in the House of the Lord. I am a certified Pharmacy Technician in the state of Utah, and I like it a lot. I love watching movies and playing basketball with friends. And that's just a little bit about me!

Why I am a Mormon

I was born into a family that belonged to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, but I have not always been the most faithful member. I struggled a lot with the Church when I was in junior high and high school. I saw others around me doing what they were supposed to be doing, and I just didn't want to "fall in line" like everybody else did. The problem with that, though, was that I felt empty, and I felt like something was missing in my life. I had always believed others who would bare there testimony about the truth of this gospel, but I had just never felt that way. I didn't have a strong relationship with my parents, nor my Father in Heaven. When I was about 14 years old, I decided that I would try living the way that I knew I should. I started to listen and learn about the Church a little bit more, and I really felt a change start to happen in my life. Then, as time went on, I started to struggle and wander from the correct path, but I would always find my way back. There were definitely some ups and downs, but through Jesus Christ and His Atonement, I was able to be found, helped, and healed because of my faith in Him who has all power. I love my Savior, and I know that He will always love me.

How I live my faith

I strive to my life in the same manner as Jesus Christ. I attend my Sunday church meetings, I live the commandments that God has given, and I try to show compassion and give service to others whenever I can. I have been in a few leadership positions over our small group of young men, and I have always enjoyed doing that and serving them. I have also liked my teaching opportunities that I have been given, and I feel that I have grown each time I have shared with others my testimony. I love living the restored gospel of Jesus Christ, I have always felt more at peace while being faithful than when I have found myself wandering from the path of righteousness. I hope to share the message that Heavenly Father has prepared for His children with all those that He helps me to find, and I know that He will lead and guide me throughout my life if I put my trust in Him.
