Hi I'm Dan

I love going to Disney World, learning languages, biology, and looking at my fears straight in the eye. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born one of 6 (I'm the second youngest) in New Jersey and moved out to Utah right before I turned eleven. Since then, I've enjoyed the geography of the state and all of the activities I've had the chance to do on its soil, such as rock climbing, boating, digging holes, and camping. I enjoy nature, and I have a deep fondness of camping under the stars during all months of the year, because I love being exposed to the elements and taking nature for what it is. I always try to tag along with a friend when I go on adventures so that we never get hurt. I want to be a biologist when I am older because I love analyzing why living things operate the way they do.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because I know that not only does the Book of Mormon answer my questions about Christ, but living the Gospel blesses my life. I know that Christ's Atonement is real and that repentance helps anyone with any trial they're going through. I've seen my own, as well as other's prayers answered. I feel myself getting better each and everyday through Jesus Christ's Atonement. I love knowing answers to some of life's deepest questions such as " where we came from" , "where we are", and "where we're going".

How I live my faith

I strive to do everything I can to make it back to my Father in Heaven, by keeping his commandments and having faith in our savior Jesus Christ. The gospel has been a blessing in my life, and it's comforting to know that we have a God that lives and loves us and that we have a Redeemer to help us correct the mistakes we make. I do all that I can to serve God's children by doing service for them and devoting my time to make them happier people.

What are Mormon temples used for?

Dan
Since our ultimate purpose of this Earthly life is to prepare to meet God (Alma 34:32), we must perform sacred ordinances (i.e. one of them being Baptism by someone holding the priesthood authority) and make Covenants with God so that we can one day return to Him. We perform some of these things in temples, but as we do these things we also enjoy the benefit of recieving additonal knowledge that can help us to return with our Father again. Show more Show less

What is being a Mormon like?

Dan
What is it like being a Latter-Day Saint? It's all fun with friends and family! It is not neccesary for me to break God's commandments to experience a happy life. In fact, it's just the opposite, because I keep God's Law and because I'm living His standards I avoid many things that can harm my life; physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Show more Show less
