Hi I'm Daniel

I am a type one diabetic with a sweet tooth. I love computers. I am a Mormon.

About Me

When I was seven years old, I was diagnosed with type one diabetes. It was frightening at first, and perhaps still is a bit, but you can't let things like that hold you down! I've found myself a few interesting hobbies over the years, including programming, cinematography, digital art, animation, and cosplay. I guess I'm a bit of a nerd at heart! I worked technical support for a middle school. I love my parents, my younger brother, my two sisters, and my cat, Kitty.

Why I am a Mormon

One of my favorite verses of scripture is Ether 12:27. It reads "And if men come unto me I will show unto them their weakness, I give unto men weakness that they may be humble; and my grace is sufficent enough for all men that humble themselves before me; for if they humble themselves before me, and have faith in me, then will I make weak things become strong unto them." Throughout my life, I've gone through many trials. I've been keenly aware of my own fraility since I was very young. My health has never been desirable, despite my efforts. In the midst of these, however, I learned a lot about God, and how sometimes we have to be humble before he can help us. I am a Mormon because I've seen how this book and this gospel has changed my life. I know it's true, I know that because I follow the teachings of Christ I am alive today. I know God has blessed me, and continues to bless and uplift and support me through every moment of every day. I know that He lives, and I know that He loves me. I know that it's my turn to return the favor, and help spread his love wherever I am. Even though I've experianced some setbacks here and there, I've found that it's always important to look through the storm to see the rainbow at the end of it. Sometimes, if we slow down and take a closer look, we can even learn to appreciate how beautiful the rain can be.

How I live my faith

Living your faith is much harder then simply declaring a religion. It's also infinately more rewarding. I try to live my religion every day by doing what Christ would do. Share what you know about God. Share experiances that help you and can help others. Help others through their own trials and make other's burdens lighter. One of my favorite things to do is to talk to other type one diabetics, especially young children. I know when I got it my life turned upside down, and it's an incredible feeling being able to help someone else get back on their feet, and just see that it's all going to work out.
