Hi I'm Daniel

I grew up in Houston Texas, and i'm on a mission to serve the lord in the Sweden Stockholm mission.

About Me

I'm currently a missionary in the Sweden Stockholm mission! I come from a small family... I know unusual for a mormon family. But it's my parents me and my sister. I'm a huge movie buff and just like taking it chill with my friends when I have the free time. I enjoy reading and writing, in fact I'm trying to write my own book. I'm open minded and always try to reach out to those around me and help them feel included. I skateboard, play video games, and enjoy going to sporting events.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon because... well it just kinda makes sense. I was raised in the church and its been a huge part of my life, but it hasn't always been in my life. My family taught me the principles and I went with it because it seemed like the right thing to do. However, I think it's like this with every member of the church, there comes a time where you actually have to put everything to the test and find out for yourself. Before my mission I had never really read The Book of Mormon. Here I am about to take 2 years of my life to testify of Joseph Smith, Jesus Christ and the Book of Mormon and I didn't even know if it was true. While reading the book, I began to have doubts. I had never really had an issue with Joseph Smith or the history of the church, but when I began reading I began to wonder if the Book of Mormon was true. Through prayer, fasting and study, I came upon my answer. I continued to read the Book of Mormon and learned of the Prophet Joseph Smith's life and it began to start making sense. What sealed the deal for me, was a video by an inspired leader of the church and his testimony of the Book of Mormon. His words sank deep into my soul and I put myself in Joseph's shoes. Would I sacrifice my life and the safety of my family just to prove a point? Would I let myself die over a lie? I don't think anyone would... When I applied the scriptures and the teachings to myself I came to know that it had to all be true. I have never found more peace in my life than in the pages of that book, and in knowing that we have a prophet on the earth today. Jesus is The Christ and he has again restored His church to the earth in our time, for our benefit. In short, if you haven't read the Book of Mormon, do so. It will bless your life in ways you could never imagine.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by trying to be more like my Savior. Each day I can become better than I was the day before. Through The Atonement of Jesus Christ, I can help others around me by being like Him and by inviting others to find the same peace and joy I have experienced in my own life.
