Hi I'm Daniel Broadhead

I'm just a kid with a dream. I'm in the NYRM. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I'm the oldest of 5. I've been raised in Salt Lake City Utah. I was attending the University of Utah to pursue medicine, but have taken a leave of absence to serve in the New York Rochester Mission, which is the best decision I've ever made. I love nature and all things outdoors, and it's even better when my friends are with me. My family is the most important thing to me. And I have a dream to save the world.

Why I am a Mormon

I am a Mormon because it makes me feel good. There is no happy feeling that can compare to the peace and joy that the Spirit brings. I've had trials in my life, but I was able to overcome those trials through faith in the Lord and his Atonement. Being a Mormon is truly a wondrous thing. It is very comforting to know that God continues to speak to us because He still loves us. It is peaceful to know that He cares for me enough to give me the opportunity to live with Him forever after this life, along with my family. What could be better than living forever with your family? I sure don't know. Nothing is better than that opportunity.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by devoting two years of my life to being a missionary. Two years of my time, my talents, my energy, and everything I have. I go out every day to invite people to Christ, who is our Savior. I love it. I do it because it's made me happy in my life, and I want to share that happiness with others.

What is The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' attitude regarding homosexuality and same sex marriage?

Daniel Broadhead
The Church's attitude to those persons named, is best summed up in "The Family: A Proclamation to the World", which is a wonderful read, and I suggest you read it. We love all of God's children, and we want them to be happy. I know that the most sure way to find happiness is to follow the teachings of God and His prophets. Those teachings teach that homosexuality and other sexual sins are against God's laws. Something I like that has been said is, "Love the sinner, and hate the sin.". Come to Christ, He can help you overcome any obstacle. He is the Light and the way. Show more Show less

What are some things that tell you there is a God?

Daniel Broadhead
Everything testifies to me that there is a God, and a loving one at that. One of my favorite scriptures is in The Book of Mormon, in the book of Alma. Verse 34. "All things denote there is a God; yea, even the earth, and all things that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator." All the wonders of the earth show that there is a God, and that He loves us. Looking up at the night sky. All the billions of worlds. Or life. Life is fascinating. And God put all these things here for us. For we are His children. And He loves us. Show more Show less
