Hi I'm Daniel

I mostly grew up in Texas. I enjoy playing sports and spending time with my wife and daughter. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I enjoy playing volleyball and basketball. I've always worked hard in school. My dream was to go to Brigham Young University like my parents. I was accepted and traveled to Utah to go to school. I served a two year mission in Arizona and met my wife when I went back to school at BYU. We have a sweet little girl who we adore. I've since graduated and am now thinking about pursuing a masters degree.

Why I am a Mormon

I was raised in the church and was taught to believe in God. I had a remarkable experience when I was a teenager that strengthened my faith a great deal. I felt the love of God in a powerful, unexpected way when I was feeling depressed. I knew right away that God lived and that everything I had learned was true. I realized the importance of the things I had been learning all of my life. Even when I had challenges I could not deny what I knew to be true. That allowed my to serve a mission and invite others to come unto Christ. While I was on my mission I prayed specifically to know that the Book of Mormon was true. It was something that I wish I had done sooner. I received my answer while teaching a young man about Joseph Smith and the gold plates. The Spirit of God whispered to my mind that everything in the Book of Mormon really did happen. I truly know that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has been restored to the earth through the prophet Joseph Smith. I know that I can be with my family forever if I do my best to follow Christ. This brings great joy and happiness to my life.

How I live my faith

I try to go to church every week. My wife and I teach the 4-5 year old children in our ward's primary. They are such sweet little spirits. I do my best to visit the families in our ward that I am assigned to. It is a great opportunity to serve others. I also try to do little acts of service for my neighbors like bring their trash can in for them. We live next to an army vet who I have gone out of my way to talk to.
