Hi I'm Dane

I'm a full time student, work full time and I'm preparing to be a financial planner in Denver. And I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Utah by a strong Mormon family. I never really understood why this church is so important until I served my mission in Eugene, Oregon. I loved every minute of my time there sharing the gospel message of Jesus Christ. I am very passionate about life and my faith. The most important parts of my life are my Savior, my family, my friends and my hobbies. When I'm not spending time with my family and friends I'm playing sports with friends. I love basketball, golf, tennis, football...you name it, I'll play it. I also love getting out and exploring the beautiful creations God has given us.

Why I am a Mormon

Even though I grew up a member of this church, it doesn't mean I always believed or knew it was the right church. The more I studied the doctrine and prayed for answers, the more clear it became. God loves all his children and he wants them all to be happy. He answers prayers and He has provided a way for all of his children to return to Him. I am a very logical person naturally. So the thought of God being a perfect being, with perfect doctrines for all his children only makes sense. God is not out to confuse us all by making the Gospel confusing and creating thousands of different churches. He has given us prophets throughout time to help us understand. Those prophets are not confined to the olden days of the Bible. God loves us today just as much as He loved the people back then. He has sent prophets in these days to help us. You can come to know this the same way I came to know. Read the Book of Mormon and ask God if it is a true book of scripture. If you receive an answer that it is, that proves that Joseph Smith, the man who translated the book, is a prophet of God. I know this is true. God has answered my prayers many times that the Book of Mormon is real scripture and that Joseph Smith is a prophet just like Noah and Moses of old. I have also see the blessings flow as I read from the Book of Mormon and live the teachings written there. The Book of Mormon is Another Testament of Christ and will increase your knowledge and belief in Jesus. I know this is true. God has answered my prayers. And He will answer yours.

How I live my faith

I have always felt that the best way to live is by following the example of Jesus Christ. If we follow His teachings and live the way he lived, we will find true happiness and we will be able to understand real truth in this confusing world. I am very blessed to teach the children in our congregation ages 9 and 10 each week. They are so smart and so pure. Christ always spoke of how much he loved and blessed the children. I am so thankful to be able to serve Christ by teaching these children about Him and His sacrifice.
