Hi I'm Daniel Allen Lucas

I grew up in Marion, Ohio. My major in college is architecture. I am a convert from a variety of previous religions. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

My name is Daniel. My hobbies and interests include, but are not limited to: going on adventures to new places, enjoying hot chocolate and pastries, listening to new age music, as well as some epic uplifting techno trance, teaching myself new songs on the piano, and finding joy in the gospel of Jesus Christ. I am going to college for architecture and love temples of all kinds. I am a convert from a variety of previous religions. I am who I am and I'm a Mormon!

Why I am a Mormon

I chose to be a member of His church because as I prayerfully and diligently searched for truth and light, He manifested unto me the way in which I should go, leading me after many years to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. My conversion story is unique and sacred, but I continue to follow His gospel because I do not know where I would go or what I would do if a part of who I am was lost forever. I testify that I know the church is true, just as much as I know that the book is blue, and that Jesus Christ above all things most definitely love each and everyone of you!

How I live my faith

I live me faith by three words: Life, Love, and Wisdom. As we live our life, we strive to find joy and love everywhere we travel; as we do so, we gain wisdom, experience, and stories that we can share for generations to come. I participate in my community through the Columbus Young Single Adult 1st Ward by means of the Latter-Day Saint Student Association at The Ohio State University. In addition, every Saturday and Sunday evening, I make the journey to Panera Bread and gather their leftover bread and pastries in order to sort, with help from some loyal members and friends, for those students, investigators, or anyone else who may be hungry throughout the week. I have accepted a variety of church callings, recent of which was the role of Sunday School President, prior to my accepting the call of a full-time missionary. I have participated in hometeaching, helped organize events, etc. I live me faith with the Holy Ghost in my heart, Jesus Christ by my side, and Heavenly Father guiding my path from above!
