Hi I'm Danielle

I am a college student. I grew up in a family of ten children. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a college student majoring in Biomedical Engineering. As of right now, I am not currently going to school, but I am preparing to serve an LDS mission in Brazil. My dream is to one day travel the world. I love to read, spend time with my family, and make memories. I am a lover of music, all things vintage, pinterest, and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents raised me and my siblings as members of this church. We have all chosen to continue to follow His gospel as we have grown up. The church brings a joy that I have never known before. I never had an amazing conversion story or one moment when I knew the Book of Mormon and church were true. I have always felt and known of the truthfulness of the gospel. Whenever I prayed about the Book of Mormon or gospel, I always had a confirmation of that truth. My testimony only continues to grow. I was baptized when I was eight years old, but I am continually converting myself to Jesus Christ and His gospel. I know this church is true. I know that we have a loving Heavenly Father and His son is the savior, Jesus Christ. I know that you and I are eternal beings. I know that God loves you with an infinite love. I know that God lives.

How I live my faith

I try to live my faith by living the teachings of Jesus Christ. Service plays a large part in this. Dieter F. Uchtdorf said, "As we lose ourselves in the service of others we discover our lives and our own happiness." I believe in being an example, standing up for your faith at all times, and in living the gospel everyday. During this time, I do not have an official calling in the church. Instead, I will soon officially be called as a full-time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. I will leave my family for eighteen months to go to Brazil and serve the Lord. "May we live by faith, hold fast to hope, and show compassion to one another." –Jeffrey R. Holland
