Hi I'm Dane Carlson

I grew up in Springville Utah, I am a filmmaker, and I'm a mormon.

About Me

I consider myself a filmmaker even though the films I make are not largely produced. I create short films for local business and other volunteer organizations to help promote. I have done a lot of work for the red cross. I love this because it gives me the opportunity to share my creativity and also to help people along the way. This is something I am very passionate about and love the way it can motivate and move people.

Why I am a Mormon

I love being a part of this church. This church has strengthened my community and my family more than I could ever describe. It has allowed my family to come together with the common purpose and goal. This goal is the one that is set aside for us by our heavenly father and is given to us to strengthen my family and so many others. This goal allows us to become a family that works together to help others in what they need. I have seen so many great acts of service come out of the church. These are acts that are not done for any reason other than a love for our fellow man. I also love being a mormon because of the wonderful testimony that I have. I have a love for everything about this great plan of happiness and because of that all I want to do is be able to share it with others.

How I live my faith

I am currently preparing to serve a mission in Liberia! This has led to me to frequently volunteer in my ward and to look for ways that I can help out. I love being able to help others as that is the entire missionary goal. You must be able to reach out to other people and help brighten there day in anyway you can. These small acts of kindness are what makes missionary work so effective. People don't respond to you rushing up and talking to them as well as they respond to you being a genuinely lovely and great person. This is what people will notice and what people will want to become a part of.
