Hi I'm Danyelle Marie

Hello I am a single mom who has learned to embrace the gospel!!!

About Me

Some of my hobbies are photography, football (I love me some Sunday football). I am a mom and it's the best feeling in the world. I wouldn't trade it in for anything, my son is my world, my best friend and the light of my life. I just graduated from college on 10-5-2014 I am a paralegal major! I am going to major in family law!

Why I am a Mormon

I am a convert to the church, I found out about the church thru a group of missionaries that where out visiting my neighbor and that is when they ran into me. I invited them to come back and teach me and that is when my son's father didn't want them to come back. We broke up and I had found the missionaries phone number and called for like two weeks straight and still no answer, at this point I had given up hope of hearing from them. The following week I believe it was a Monday or Tuesday I had received a knock on my door and it was the missionaries from the church, I invited them in and set up an appointment for them to come back and start teaching me the lessons. I was just sucking up the book of Mormon I couldn't put it down. By the end of March I had made the commitment to be baptized and I was baptized on April 27st 2008 and confirmed a member of the church on May 4th 2008. Becoming inactive was the worst mistake of my life. I was inactive for almost 2 years, now I am back and stronger than ever.

How I live my faith

I volunteer at my son's school when I can at my old ward I was a ward missionary and I went out teaching with the sister missionaries when I possibly could :) I have officially been offered a new calling and I am the Sunday school teacher in Gospel Principals ! I love my new calling because I get to learn even more about the gospel. I recently got a new calling and now will be serving with a great group of 11 year old boys as a scout leader! I am really looking forward to working with them and helping them strengthen there faith...... But also it strengthening mine!

What is being a Mormon like?

Danyelle Marie
What's being a Mormon like? To me being a Mormon is one of the most greatest blessing that has ever came into my life. We have set rules that we follow to make sure that we can live with our heavenly father once again. Attending church helps me have a better understanding and also finding joy and happiness that I deserve to have here on earth. Being a Mormon we learn that families can be together forever thru heavenly fathers plan. I know that I am going to be able to live with my family always and forever. Show more Show less

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Danyelle Marie
Each and everyone of us has a testimony it can be a tiny or it can be huge! I have a very strong testimony of the church! I know that Joseph Smith was a true prophet who walked this earth and established the true church on the earth! I also know the book of Mormon to be true and it's another testament of Jesus Christ! I 3 the book of Mormon it's my road map to my life. When ever I get lost I can always true to it and it will lead me back on to the right path!!! I know that without having the gospel in my life it would be hard to say where I would be in life. The gospel of Jesus Christ has brought me a lot of happiness not only in my life but also in my son's life!!! I AM PROUD TO BE MORMON Show more Show less
