Hi I'm Danielle

I'm a missionary. I love helping others. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm currently a missionary, and I love it! I am so grateful for the chance I have to invite others to come unto Christ. I want to make a difference in the world, and I know that I can do this by sharing the source of my joy with others. I decided to serve a mission because I've seen how the gospel of Jesus Christ has the power to change people's lives for the better.

Why I am a Mormon

When I was young, I had a little sister who was born prematurely. She lived for three weeks, but while in the hospital she contracted an illness that her little body couldn't handle. This was a tragic time for my family, but through the years we've found comfort in our belief that we will see her again. I'm so grateful for Jesus Christ, who has made it possible, through His atonement, for us to live again after death, and to be reunited with those we love. I know that God loves me. I know that He hears and answers my prayers, and that He knows what is best for me. I'm a member of this church because it brings me immense happiness. As I follow the teachings of the church, I am comforted and helped through the trials that I face.

How I live my faith

I try to keep an optimistic perspective on life. I know that when I'm happy, I have the power to lift and encourage the people I come in contact with. I also try to share my joy with others by inviting them to learn more about the gospel of Jesus Christ - He is the source of my happiness. I am currently in training to serve an 18 month mission in Taipei, Taiwan, and I hope that I'll be able to bring the peace and joy I've felt because of my faith into the hearts of the people I meet there.

What do Mormons believe about the Bible? Do they regard it as Holy Scripture and the word of God?

Danielle
We believe that the Bible contains the word of God to His people. I have read all of it, and I know that there are many beautiful teachings that can be found in it. We believe that God speaks to all of His people though, and many of the teachings of our church are founded upon another ancient record called "The Book of Mormon". When these two writings are placed side by side and combined with the revelation of God's will today, we have the fullness of the gospel, which is made stronger because of the double witness of these two sets of scripture.
