Hi I'm Danny

Love my family (past, present, future), friends, work and baseball mean a lot to me, Orderville and NYC fav location, I'm a Mormon

About Me

I grow up in a town of 500 people and I love my rural up bringing. On my mission to Pittsburgh I fell in love with the east and it's people. I also felt and learned how deeply God loves his children, including His love for me, and why the mission of His Son, my Savior, Jesus Christ was so important and could personally help and improve me. After returning from Pittsburgh, and while a Dixie College, I met another love; my sweetheart Bethany. We both graduated there then married in 2000. After graduating from SUU, we moved the Texas to start my career as an accountant in the aviation field. We loved Texas, the people we met and the beautiful little girl we welcomed to our family, we especially liked when the Boston Red Sox came to town and we could watch our favorite team. After a couple years we moved to Connecticut to further my career. There we welcomed 3 more children, two girls and a boy. We loved being close to New York City and especially visiting the Manhattan temple. It was very fun to live close to the Red Sox and to see games at Fenway park. Working for an airline allows for fun vacations and for family visits by going to them or bringing them to us. Recently I took another role at work that brought our family back to Utah. I love stand-up comics and love to laugh. Love to be outdoors, especially on an ATV. Social media keeps me connected, follow me @jb_dannycox

Why I am a Mormon

Simply, living according to teaching proscribed to by Mormons has brought me great happiness. Those teaching bring me closer to my family and closer to my Heavenly Father and His Son. I know that because God loves you and I, He wants us to have His words and counsel. Anciently and today he provides that counsel through His prophet. His ancient counsel is found in scriptures; the Bible and the Book of Mormon. We have been blessed with a living prophet today, because He loves us and continues to teach us. These teachings bring me so much joy, peace and happiness. I'm a Mormon because I know I need God's continued guidance and teaching to become the best husband, father, son and neighbor I can be.

How I live my faith

I try to live in a way that others feel comfortable asking me what makes me so happy. I try to put my family first and know and feel the joy it brings when I do. I was blessed with fantastic parents and teachers as a child, so I try in every way to help, coach and mentor youth when I can. I enjoy teaching Sunday School classes to share the examples of how Jesus Christ lived after a pattern of happiness.
